1When I'm acting, I'm much taller and thinner in my mind. Then I see myself and I'm like 'Oh, right. I forgot. That's what I look like.''"
2My mom was black and my dad is Jewish, and I lost my mom when I was seven ... That made me feel really different from other kids.
3I've met people who are baffled by children, as though they were never children themselves. I think that people who don't like kids are awful people.
4Donatella Versace gave me pointers - a lot of them. She said she would never wear fake diamonds. I let the costume department know.
5If there's ice cream present, ordering is a no brainer. I think all of us need to have ice cream whenever possible. My go-to is mint chip.
6[on having 3 kids and a career] I thought, 'Just make it work. I had people that I trust telling me that we'll make it work. And here we are, trying to make it work. I think it's all doable.
