Smulders reveals she is fighting ovarian cancer at age of 25.
I had tumors on both ovaries and the cancer had spread into my lymph nodes and surrounding tissues. She adds that it took multiple surgeries over the course of two years to remove the cancerous tissue…. I don’t think I’ll ever feel like I’m cancer-free. Now that I’m five years out, I’m trying to think of it as a positive thing and what can I learn from it. And if I can create more awareness, I’ll do it.
Smulders and Killam welcome their second child together. Smulders confirms the birth as she discusses her movie Unexpected in which she plays a pregnant teacher.
I’m in Sundance and I have a three week old baby, so I can certainly relate.
Smulders appears on the cover of the December 2010 issue of Maxim magazine. She talks about Canada, How I Met Your Mother, and her experience with musical theatre.
My musical theater experience includes singing Puttin’ on the Ritz in a high school production of Singin’ in the Rain. Puttin’ on the Ritz isn’t even in Singin’ in the Rain! My mother, who’s a delightful British woman, came up to me after the play and said, ‘Oh, Cobie. You were wonderful. You couldn’t sing a note, but you sang it anyway!’
