All mothers worry about their children.

But Tilda Swinton takes it to a whole new level. The actress says that when she's away, she's constantly worried that something bad is going to happen to her 14-year-old twins Honor and Xavier.

Tilda says that she creates situations in her mind and she can't stop thinking about them until she's back with her children, keeping them safe. She explains:

"I work at motherhood. Although I travel a lot, I'm never away shooting more than a couple of weeks. I'm very aware I'm responsible for their safety, my imagination works overtime trying to foresee any eventuality. I fire up. The problems expand in my head and take me to dark stuff. My imagination takes on all disasters."

This especially came to play while filming her latest movie We Need to Talk About Kevin. In the film, her character struggles to bond with her son, who then goes on a killing spree, massacring students and teachers at his school.

She says:

"The movie's a phantasmagoria. About a woman's mind. Not a social commentary. The prize-winning book had a big impact in London. A worst-case scenario nightmare of raising a child with mother and son at dagger's points. Having a baby half-heartedly, hoping glue kicks in and has its stamp. The baby she's caring for at arm's length never stops screaming . Mothers in the audience align. They recognize the danger. You can see the desperation."

Whoa, what an intense movie.

Knowing now what goes through her mind when she's away from her children gives us a better perspective as to why she chooses darker films.

Hopefully, she chills out a bit when her kids become adults. They're going to have to face their fears and learn from their mistakes at some point.
