At the Kennedy Center Ripple of Hope Awards dinner Dec. 11, there were plenty of Kennedys to go around, but the true bell of the ball was actress Cheryl Hines, who attended with boyfriend Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

The pair have been dating for about 2 years, and more than ever, people want to know what it’s like to be part of such a prestigious family. Closer caught up with the actress on the red carpet to find out!

“Well, they are an extraordinary group,” the comedian shared. “They sometimes can make you feel very lazy because they don't stop. They're either doing extreme sports or they're fighting for human rights. And sometimes I'm just getting potato chips and changing the channel.”

Cheryl acknowledged that the group’s non-stop life-style “is exhausting,” and even the mention of her holiday plans had her rolling her eyes. “We’re going skiing. Again,” she said unenthusiastically. “I'm going to drink a lot of hot chocolate and act like I have a stomach ache for half of the day and try to catch up with them at the end.”

So does Cheryl hope to follow in the family’s political footsteps and possibly run for office? “No!” she laughed. “Not at this point in time. But I will let you know if I decide to.”
