Actress HEATHER LOCKLEAR and her husband RICHIE SAMBORA often have to ensure their doors are locked before they get intimate - because their seven-year-old daughter AVA often interrupts.

The former DYNASTY star and her rocker husband have placed a mirror above their bed, which they often make use of when they're together - but their offspring also enjoys looking at her own reflection.

Locklear says, "She climbs in the bed... She likes the mirror bed too, but not for any other reason than her looking at herself. She looks at herself a lot.

"We have to put locks on the doors (when we want privacy). We do have locks on the doors, we just have to use them. But we like run to another room that's smaller, with locks."

Actress HEATHER LOCKLEAR has a full view of everything going on whenever she and rocker husband RICHIE SAMBORA share an intimate moment, after fitting a mirror above her bed.

The former MELROSE PLACE star enjoys the addition to her bedroom - and she insists it's a lot classier than people think.

She says, "It sounds really tacky, like it's a waterbed or something, but it's not. (The bed has) a mirror behind and then above and it's got these beautiful panels on the side of it.

"But then once you get in the bed you notice all kinds of surprises... I'm just checking (Richie) out. You get to see every part."

Locklear Knows Perfection Is Just Fantasy

LOS ANGELES - Finding the perfect man is nothing but a fantasy and Heather Locklear wouldn't have it any other way.

Even though she stars in "The Perfect Man," Locklear told reporters: "Perfect doesn't really exist. There's no perfect man. There's no perfect woman or person."

Locklear, married to Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, doesn't mind, though. "Imperfections" are what make people more exciting anyway, she said.

"There are people that can be perfect for each other," added Hilary Duff.

In the film, Locklear plays a single mom working in a bakery who has some desperate emotional bent for hooking up with losers. Duff tries to salve her mom's romantic pangs by creating an ideal — but fictional — beau.

Though this isn't the first time Locklear, 43, has played a mother, it took a while to get used to having a teenager for a daughter.

"Maybe a year before I was Dakota Fanning's mother," she said about her movie "Uptown Girls" with the then 9-year-old Fanning. "And then when I was in 'Dynasty,' I had a little baby; no one ever saw this baby. Well, now, 17. Well, OK. It's not impossible. I had to swallow my pride just a bit. But look at my daughter! How great!"

Locklear said it was weird having Duff's mother on the set.

"It felt strange when her mom was there cause we're more the same age," Locklear said. "I would listen to stories that Hilary and I would talk about. And I thought, 'Hmm, should I be thinking about her mother? And if this was my child? Or should I be, like, the confidant?'"

"The Perfect Man," also starring Chris Noth, finished seventh at the box office this past weekend, taking in $5.5 million.
