Sarah Michelle Gellar: 'I've Learned To Embrace Flats' (VIDEO)

It's been a while since we hung out with Sarah Michelle Gellar on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." So what's changed for the blonde star since she slew her last on-screen vampire in 2003?

"I've learned to embrace flats!" says Gellar, who stopped by HuffPost Live to chat about her latest work on the new CBS series "The Crazy Ones," among other things. "And of course I say that now, wearing, like, the hugest high heels. But it's because I'm here right now, and I'm sitting. As soon as I go back home today to my children, I will put the flats back on, because you cannot chase two children in teetering shoes."

Oh, so that's what Sarah Michelle has been up to recently -- becoming a relatable style icon for beleaguered but enthusiastic moms everywhere.

"And also, you want to look for things where vomit comes out easily..." the 36-year-old mother of two added. "So fabric... that doesn't retain the smell of vomit, also."

Gross? Sure, but we can totally get on board with a Hollywood mother who's as down-to-earth as she is stylish -- and can talk about baby vomit and fashion in the same sentence, no less.
