Former Cosby kid Lisa Bonet says her decision to return to television – in a recurring role on the ABC cop drama “Life on Mars” – was not an easy one.

 

       “To have my face reinstated in minds and homes once a week was an intense decision,” says the notoriously press-shy actress and mother of 19-year-old Zoe and 16-month-old Lola with boyfriend, actor Jason Momoa. The couple is expecting their second child in January.      

       Bonet, 41, says she has a hard enough time just dealing with the paparazzi every day.       

       “It feels like you’re being stalked,” she says. “As a shy person, that type of attention coming at me violates something. I don’t like that it’s expected to come with the territory.”      

       As for why she decided to sign on for a the new role, despite some reservations about the attention she’d be getting, she tells People.com, “You know, I guess it all has to do with the stars lining up and it being the right time and the right project.”       

       A happy love life also helped. “Having a mate has given me that feeling of safety,” she adds.

 

       Although she’s uncomfortable around the press, Bonet takes full advantage of the People interview to squash a widespread rumor that she also has a son.       

       “I don’t have three children already,” she says. “I always hear that I do … Apparently, there’s some young child locked in a basement,” she quips. “I don’t dwell on that stuff, but that comes to mind.”
