On her family:
"When you have children, your attention is put on the more important things. When I'm having my hair and makeup done fora movie or a photo shoot, I never look in the mirror. I just set up my office there... my script, my notes, my BlackBerry, and I focus on those things. I always have things I have to catch up on, especially now I have children to keep me busy. My priority is my family. That is the way I have been raised."

On her appreciation for everything:
"Every day I appreciate the people I have in my life, the job I am paid to do, the food I have on my plate, and the health that keeps me going."

On Agent Provocateur:
"[My sister and I] love underwear. We're very proud of what we've created. Where I come from the figure of the woman - the mother especially - is strong, powerful, respected. Her beauty is just one of her weapons."
