"I definitely don't think [you have to wait for] a right time. I mean: Why wait? The Chinese believe that if you have a baby, what you want comes together even better. You just do it, and make it work."
"I do think there is a weird pressure, and it's unfair. I have friends who love kids but say they don't want them for themselves, and I respect that. It's a personal choice. It's rude when people ask a woman with no kids, 'When are you going to have a baby?"
"My sanctuary is my bathtub. That's really the only time I get to myself. It's usually around 15 or 20 minutes, but for me, those minutes are like heaven on earth. Sometimes I even say a little prayer while I'm in there. I'm like, 'Lord, help me get through this day!'"
"One time a guy told me if we went out I would never have to work again. That was the opening . . . he thought that was a really strong play to open with."
"I just kind of like how things unravel and life kind of reveals itself to you. And I've just never been in the place where I was like, 'right now is the time I'm supposed to have a baby.' But I do want my own family eventually however that comes to me. You know whether it's through adoption or somehow. . ."
"Acting is a very itinerant lifestyle, so we're never home, and that's gonna have to change for me as my son grows. Right now he's a very easy travel companion, but I know that won't be true forever. And he has a lot of sh*t that goes along with him. It's just so much to bring with you."
"I want to live a normal life — drive my kids to school, have tons of animals running around, be barefoot and pregnant. I want all that . . . just not anytime soon."
“If you don’t love yourself, you can’t love anybody else. And I think as women we really forget that. All we want is to be happy, to feel secure, to feel understood. But you can’t look for somebody else to do that for you.”
"People instead of asking me about films often times will want to know the beauty secrets and ask me at big sort of very serious press conferences will like ask me my workout routine and stuff . . . you're sort of seen as like a little industry when really I just want to go make stupid movies!"
"I think I felt I had to model my life after my mother's. But then my career was starting to take off and there were still so many things I wanted to do. So that dream for me was shattered early on. After that I never put another time line on anything in my life."
