- On life with Jake: "Jake is a great cook — he does a lot. We spend the weekends outside LA, in Ojai, where I have a farmhouse. We have chickens and we grow cucumbers and tomatoes. I love it. It reminds me of where I grew up in Tennessee."
- On working out: "I try to exercise every day. I like to run for about an hour, and I'm big into working out with girlfriends . . . It's an acquired skill, being able to discuss your love life, children and friends, all while you're running! But we have mastered it."
- On her Southern upbringing: "Sometimes it's really difficult for me, being far away from home. I never imagined that my children wouldn't grow up next door to my brother's children. Or my mom and dad wouldn't constantly be around. At least I have a lot of Southern friends in LA — I gravitate toward them."
