Anna Gunn Talks "Breaking Bad" in More March 2014

Posted Monday February 24, 2014 4:43 PM GMT

She said goodbye to the hit series "Breaking Bad" last fall, and now Anna Gunn is opening up about her role in the March 2014 issue of More magazine.

The 45-year-old actress looked picture perfect in designer garbs from Alexis Russell and Blumarine for the publication's spread while opening up about everything from her acting career before the AMC drama to her character Skyler.

Highlights from Miss Gunn's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to More!

On Skyler White:
"I'm concerned that so many people react to Skyler with such venom. Could it be that they can't stand a woman who won't suffer silently or 'stand by her man?' That they despise her because she back down or give up? Or because she is, in fact, Walter's equal?"

On "Breaking Bad's" impact on her career:
"When I was in my twenties and thirties, I spent so much time worrying: the next job, the next review, the next blog. It really was wasted time. I haven't stopped worrying, but now I have the ability to say, 'I'm going to enjoy the time that I have working and that I have with my kids and my family and my friends.' And I'm not going to spend it going, 'Oh dear, oh no, what comes next in 20 minutes or two hours or tomorrow?' I'll wake up and deal with it."

On her ways of handling fear:
"I have not ceased being fearful, but I have ceased to let fear control me. I have accepted fear as a part of life, specifically the fear of change, the fear of the unknown. I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says, 'Turn back, turn back. You'll die if you venture too far.' Being afraid means you care and want to do your best, so forge ahead."
