As sexy tomboy Robin Scherbatsky on the CBS hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother, Cobie Smulders keeps the laughs coming with her witty banter and sarcastic comebacks. Off-set, Smulders is a bit softer in her delivery, but the laughs are just the same. Arriving at our shoot at the beautiful Hotel Erwin, a couple miles from her Venice Beach home, Smulders is upbeat, grounded and downright goofy.
Whether cracking up the crew between shots or jumping on the bed in the middle of our penthouse suite, it’s not easy keeping a straight face around the 27-year-old starlet. With such a zest for life, it’s hard to believe Smulders is also a mom to an eight-month old daughter – though she is sure to leave the shoot on time to get home to her little one. It can’t be easy balancing such a hectic lifestyle, but Smulders assures us she has little to complain about. (Images to be added soon.)
SNMag: If it were up to you, would Robin end up with Ted or Barney?
CS: Tough question. Probably Ted because, even though Barney is a lot of fun, I just feel like it’s one of those relationships where there’s a lot of excitement, but there are a lot of ups and downs. With Ted, it’s pretty sturdy and he’s loving.
SNMag: Can you imagine yourself being in a relationship with a guy like Barney Stinson?
CS: No. I was in a relationship with someone like Barney and it did not work out.
SNMag: Will we eventually find out who Ted winds up marrying and who is the “Mother” in the show’s title?
CS: Yes. Hopefully, in Season 11.
