We love Sarah Wright Olsen and we were lucky enough to sit down with the gregarious star and discover what she's really like offscreen.

1. The TV show Parenthood makes her cry

Want to know what makes Sarah Wright Olsen cry? Well, the answer may not be what you're expecting. She cries at every episode of the comedic drama Parenthood. Awww.

2. She peed her pants a few times during pregnancy

She may have looked gorgeous throughout her pregnancy, but it wasn't all easy going behind the scenes. Wright Olsen told us that she peed her pants a few times towards the end of her pregnancy. Don't worry, we're sure many women can relate.

3. When she's sad she eats ice cream

Yes, a girl after our own hearts. Sarah Wright Olsen has admitted that when she's sad she likes to binge on ice cream — the good ol' traditional flavors: vanilla or chocolate chip.

4. Once Upon A Time is her guilty pleasure

We love fairy tales, and so does Wright Olsen. She revealed to us that she loves watching TV, especially Once Upon A Time. Oh, and she's a major fan of Jennifer Morrison. Maybe her hubby Eric Olsen will introduce the two beauties to each other in the near future, because he's actually working on a short film with Morrison at the moment.

5. She wishes that she'd played sports in school

Sports were just not Wright Olsen' thing when she was in school and she says she hopes her son [Wyatt, born Aug. 16, 2013] goes a different route. Although, she was in a marching band and drama club, which is pretty cool in our books.

6. She has killer long legs

She may have once been embarrassed about her long legs but now she's happy that she's tall; she says it's actually her best physical trait.

7. The hardest thing about fame? Exposing her baby son Wyatt to it

"I wouldn't say that I'm very famous," Wright Olsen joked to us. However, she is struggling with whether or not to share pictures of her son within the realm of social media. "We haven't really put him out to the world, and it's sort of a weird thing — and I'm in a place where I don't know how I feel about that," she admitted. We can't blame her — being a mom and having protective instincts are one and the same.

8. Blondes have more fun (but then, so do brunettes)

Yup, she's been blond most of her life and she's had fun with it. That said, the star admits that being brunette has made her feel more edgy.

9. Pet peeve? Her dogs barking at the neighbors really annoys her

She doesn't have a lot of things that get on her nerves, though. Which just goes to show what a lovely, down-to-earth person Wright Olsen really is.

10. Her best tip for relationships: Don't lie

Want some relationship advise from Sarah Wright Olsen? "Never lie. Just don't do it," she told us. "Communication is super-important and if you're honest then you should be OK." Some sound advice.
