The moment when Anne Hathaway nearly killed her son

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

It seems like goofs up like any other normal parent.

The 34-year-old-actress, who recently stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, jokingly revealed that how she almost killed her son, Jonathan when she took him to a slide at New York City park.

She shared, "I saw this slide, which looked gorgeous and the kids weren't going that fast. So I thought, okay I'll bring Johnny on the slide. So I get to the top and all the little kids are cutting ahead of us, I could not say anything because I am an adult. So I get to the top of the slide - and just for any girls in the audience, [I was] in a skirt, which was dumb - so I pull the skirt around me and I put Johnny there, and we're going down the slide, and now the moms are watching."

Continuing, "But what I hadn't thought about was physics. So you have a 35 pounds. child going down, it's one speed, you have me and my son, it's like . not 35 pounds., so we just go around the corner and instead of slowing down like the other kids, we speed up."

She also revealed that her thoughts were going down, as their speed was going up.

"And as it speeds up, my thoughts slow down, and I just look ahead and I get very serious and very focused and I think, 'I must stick this landing."

While re-enacting the "sticking" moment that she took upon the exit from the slide, 'The Intern' star said, "So I shoot off the slide with Johnny and I go. Stuck it. Stuck that landing."

After witnessing this "shaking" moment, the mother-son did not stop right there but went back to swings and "stayed there forever."

"And you know how it is when you've just almost killed your child but you didn't? You're shaking on the inside, you're like, 'Walk it off, walk it off, everything's fine.' And then we went back to the swings and stayed there forever," she added.

Hathaway also shared that she and husband Adam Shulman, celebrated their son's first birthday in a pretty simple manner - with cake, sandwiches and a game of cornhole.

On the work front, will be next seen in Gary Ross' directorial 'Ocean's eight,' alongside Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Matt Damon and Dakota Fanning.

The movie is scheduled to release in 2018.
