The 41-year-old actress played Darlene Conner on comedy series Roseanne from 1988 to 1997, and was nominated for two Emmy Awards, and she admits the creative outlet of a acting was her saviour because she was miserable in school.

"I was lucky, for me personally, I was so miserable in school and having that life - the creative outlet kind of saved my life in ways. But I think that's a very unique set of circumstances and I think it still comes with its downsides even in the best set of circumstances," Sara explained.

And Sara reveals she would be hesitant to have one of her children - Levi, 11, Sawyer, eight, or Rhodes, one, - pursue an acting career.

"I've thought about it. I feel like the pressures outweigh... how many people don't do well, how many people die," The Talk co-host said on her TV show on Friday (15Apr16). "The pitfalls are so extreme. Not very many people are able to continue working and I don't want the highlight of their life being when they were 10-years-old.

"I'd rather them be in theatre class, do things with their peers, doing stuff in school if they want and start working later."

Sara has had roles in recent years in The Big Bang Theory and ER, and she co-created The Talk in 2010.
