On gaining 50 pounds during pregnancy:
"I gained so much weight, I got the opportunity to see myself completely disfigured in many different ways - for a very good reason - and I don't regret it for a second. That's when I started appreciating my body. The things that I used to criticize they were not bad after all."

On Hollywood pressures towards women:
"We've got to fight for our confidence every day in modern life because we live in a society that is very harsh to women. You have to be smart and successful and a good mother and beautiful and young and skinny forever."

On getting through her acting struggles:
"Patience is a wonderful skill. It teaches you to enjoy the process and not just result of things."

On making 46 the best year yet:
"I believe that change keeps you young. I'm a late bloomer; I always have been. A lot of women think that this is the [age] when you start getting depressed. To that I say, 'No, no, no, no, no!' I'm having the best time of my life."
