Sarah Michelle Gellar is passionate about getting kids to read. Earlier this week the actress spent time reading to children at the Los Angeles Public Library's historic Central Library, as part of the Nestlé Share the Joy of Reading Program. She spoke to Wonderwall on a number of subjects including the cancellation of ALL MY CHILDREN, where she won an Emmy for her portrayal of Kendall.
"I'm very upset about that," Gellar said. "First of all, they had the audacity to cancel it on my birthday. So let's have that discussion. I think it's criminal. I remember pretending to be sick when I was younger and staying home and like watching the ABC soap lineup in bed. And I realize it's tough economic times and it wasn't necessarily financially working, but there has to be a way to make it work. And these shows have been on for 40 years. I'm sorry, [but] I don't see either one of these shows they're replacing with it lasting more than a year. I really don't, and I say that with confidence. And I think, I don't think they tried hard enough to save the genre. And, it's just devastating to me."
