"I think, like every working parent, I sometimes feel that there are not enough hours in they day. But overall, I'm very fortunate that my job has a lot of flexibility.

Yeah I really like her public persona... she seems smart, independent, handled her divorce well, seems like a good mom, doesn't do anything scandalous, waited a good amount of time before coming out with Jake, etc.

She seems like a lovely woman. It's also so nice to hear celebs acknowledging that their work affords them flexibility to spend w/ their families (unlike a lot of other working parents who have a real struggle)
