Sarah Michelle Gellar has always been a Boss. The Emmy-winning actress kicked ass for seven seasons on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, co-founded a lifestyle brand Foodstirs in 2015 to inspire families to cook together, and just celebrated her 15th wedding anniversary with Freddie Prinze Jr. (hello, #relationshipgoals), with whom she has two kids.

Gellar spoke with us at #CreateGood about her inspirations, the secret to her long-lasting marriage, and what she can cook better than her culinary-school trained husband. Here are eight things we learned about the actress/entrepreneur.

1. She鈥檚 all about female empowerment. She believes that supporting other women has to come from within and that 鈥渆veryone should be empowered to be the best them they can be鈥

2. Her female inspirations include her business partner and her mother. On Galit Laibow (one of her partners on Foodstirs), she says 鈥渟he has taught me that I can do anything I put my mind to.鈥 Growing up, she looked up to her mom, a single mother who was 鈥渁ble to juggle everything at the same time, not letting me know how hard it was.鈥

3. Her tip for a lasting marriage is surprisingly simple: communication. 鈥淵ou can鈥檛 expect anyone to read your mind. You have to speak up and be heard.鈥

4. Her kids take the best of both worlds from her and Prinze Jr. 鈥淚 like to say all the good is me and all the bad/naughty is him.鈥

5. She misses the wonderment and amazement that kids have. 鈥淪ometimes I think in my next life I want to come back as my daughter鈥 You鈥檙e always rushing around, and then you have a kid and you鈥檙e late because there鈥檚 a snail on the ground.鈥

6. Even though Prinze Jr. went to culinary school, she makes better pancakes. 鈥淗is pancakes aren鈥檛 as fluffy as mine.鈥

7. She does not like the word 鈥渕oist.鈥 (Because who does?). When it comes to baking, Gellar has her husband beat. 鈥淗is brownies aren鈥檛 as M-word as mine.鈥

8. She is an equal opportunity snacker. Gellar says, 鈥淚鈥檓 not discriminatory when it comes to snacks.鈥 Faves include Foodstirs cookies and sushi.
