On "Winter's Tale":
"I have been friends with the director, Akiva [Goldsman], for a long time - we met when he wrote the script for 'A Beautiful Mind.' I had heard about this project for years, so when it finally came together and he asked me to be a part of it, I felt honored."

On her acting over the years:
"My feelings about [acting] have changed a lot over the years. There were periods when I thought, 'Is this really what I want for myself?' But it has been a long time since I've felt that way. I don't always love every project; sometimes it's torturous. Not every product is a success in terms of it being a fulfilling experience. But, actually, it is an extraordinary thing and I love what I do."

On her husband Paul Bettany:
"We have been together for 11 years, which is almost like 50 in Hollywood years. I have a lot of respect for [my husband]. I miss him when he goes away to work. I hate the missing, but it is great to still feel that way after so many years. I do feel lucky."

On her children:
"We waited so long to have a third because our boys are so great, healthy and clever and good. But then Agnes was born and everything is so much fuller and I am so madly in love, as are the boys. It has only made the dynamic richer."
