It’s bizarre that the produce manager is more important to my children’s health than the pediatrician.
I have a holistic need to work and to have huge ties of love in my life. I can’t imagine eschewing one for the other.
All that attention to the perfect lighting, the perfect this, the perfect that, I find terribly annoying.
Sometimes with my children, I remember exactly how I felt as the child in this situation, not just how it feels to be me.
I didn’t have any confidence in my beauty when I was young. I felt like a character actress, and I still do.
My feeling about fears is, if you voice your fears, they may come true. I’m superstitious enough to believe that.
Interestingly, young people don’t come to you for advice. Especially the ones who are related to you.
I’m thrilled when I get nominated. I don’t count how many and I don’t remember how many I’ve had. I just know it’s a lot.
Show business has been really, really good to me because I can work and take a lot of time off, and I’m extremely undisciplined person.

I get a trickling few scripts that I’m lucky enough that some of them are great. I don’t get loads of scripts.

I have a very busy life, and not many people who have a career and four kids go out a lot to the movies.
I don’t like to be gone all weekend and at night too. Because for 20 years, I’ve had children who are in school.
I think the most liberating thing I did early on was to free myself from any concern with my looks as they pertained to my work.
Every single decision I make about what material I do, what I’m putting out in the world, is because of my children.
We are who we’re going to be when we’re very old, and when we’re very old we are who we were when we were 8.
I had this sort of idolatry for certain actors who preceded me, people who inspired me, so I’m honored to be that way for young actors.
Obsession is an attractive thing. People who are really, really interested and good at one thing and smart are attractive, if they’re men.
Integrate what you believe in every single area of your life. Take your heart to work and ask the most and best of everybody else, too.
I’m a pain in the ass to all of the costume designers with whom I work because I have very strong feelings about the subject.
Everything we say signifies; everything counts, that we put out into the world. It impacts on kids, it impacts on the zeitgeist of the time.
