On not wanting plastic surgery
I’m a normal human being. I don’t have any desire to change my body as a result of having had two kids. That’s a good thing, isn’t it?
On how Hollywood has changed these past few years
There is so much access to celebrity that it’s become harder to hold on to any mystery as an actress. The audience can have a fixed idea of you in their head.
On not wanting to be referred to as a movie star
I don’t feel like [one] in my life at all, and I don’t particularly think I behave like one. I don’t have my own plane. I don’t have a chef of a trainer. To me, you’re a movie star only during the time when you’re at the Academy Awards or at an important glamorous event. It’s very much a hat that you wear, and as soon as the event’s over, that hat comes off. I’m back to being me and being Mommy, and that’s my priority.
On not having a natural impulse to pamper herself
Literally, the one maybe celeb-y thing I do is the occasional facial. That is the only indulgent thing, where I just lie there and relax for an hour. You can’t answer the phone. You can’t get up and make soup. You’ve just got to lie there and have somebody make you feel nice.
