The actress, 32, who appreciates her husband’s clean shave and improvises games with her two-year-old son Aleph, chatted with PEOPLE this week about “one last thing” …

Last compliment I gave
To my husband [choreographer Benjamin Millepied]. He shaved this morning and it looked really nice. I don’t mind scruff but it was just a change and it merited a compliment.

Last injury
Two days ago I banged my leg into a table. I was talking to someone and I got uncomfortable and I moved awkwardly and hit my leg. I was just being awkward.

Last game I played
It wasn’t really a game but [two-year-old son Aleph] and I were just playing with the pieces of Bananagrams, you know, playing with the letters. Well, throwing them around [laughs].

Last time I cursed
Oh, I don’t know. I feel like I curse on and off but it depends on who I’m talking to. I haven’t in a while. You just sort of naturally don’t when you’re around kids except by accident.
