Now that Kathryn Hahn is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she’s noticed a slight change in the way her kids interact with her.

On Monday, the actress visited the People Every Day podcast where she told the show’s host, Janine Rubenstein, that her son, Leonard, 14, and daughter, Mae, 11, were “thoroughly impressed” with their mother’s performance in “WandaVision” as (spoiler alert) the malevolent witch Agatha Harkness.

“No one can really admit to their mom that they’re cool, which I understand and respect,” Hahn said (via People), “but they definitely were a little bit, I would just say, suspiciously nicer to me these days.”

She added, “I feel like I’m going to take that as a huge compliment. They’re definitely proud for sure.”

Her kid’s didn’t always feel that way, however.

During a recent visit to “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” Hahn told the host, “When I was practicing my moves for this particular show ... my children came in and saw me practicing, and it was as if they had seen me just get out of the shower. They literally were like, ‘Oh, my. ... Mom!’ Like I was practicing my witch moves, and they were so embarrassed” (via HuffPost).

In addition to winning over the approval of her kids, Hahn’s Marvel role has scored her some major points on social media. A screenshot of Hahn’s “WandaVision” character has recently been adopted for a new meme format. Here are a couple of examples (courtesy of Buzzfeed):

People reports that Hahn was unaware that she’d been turned into a meme because she doesn’t have any social media accounts.

“A lot of different friends from a lot of different walks of life have sent me memes in so many different contexts,” she told Rubenstein (via People). “It’s just so weird. ’Cause I’m in here in my garage, so the whole thing feels so out of body.”

She added, “But I’m totally tickled by it. It’s hilarious.”

“WandaVision” is currently available to stream exclusively on Disney+.
