I'm lucky to have been raised in the most beautiful place - Amherst, Massachusetts, state of my heart. I'm more patriotic to Massachusetts than to almost any place. more...

Tall, sandy blonde, with sort of blue eyes, skinny in places, fat in others. An average gal. more...

I spent the first fourteen years of my life convinced that my looks were hideous. Adolescence is painful for everyone, I know, but mine was plain weird. more...

I was not particularly bright, I wasn't very athletic, I was a little too tall, odd, funny looking, I was just really weird as a kid. more...

My washing machine overwhelms me with its options and its sophistication. more...

I used to be more paranoid and stressed, constantly worrying about my Plan B. But the truth is I don't have one. more...

It is better to have a relationship with someone who cheats on you than with someone who does not flush the toilet. more...

Desperation is the perfume of the young actor. It's so satisfying to have gotten rid of it. If you keep smelling it, it can drive you crazy. In this business a lot of people go nuts, go eccentric, even end up dead from it. Not my plan. more...

Before I had my child, I thought I knew all the boundaries of myself, that I understood the limits of my heart. It's extraordinary to have all those limits thrown out, to realize your love is inexhaustible. more...

And also I think particularly as a female, you're taught to be defensive your whole life. You're taught not to be aggressive. more...

I never ever slept again after my first pregnancy. more...

I had to go to a mirror and look at it. I couldn't picture myself in my own head. I had no image beyond a stick figure. I wasn't a mean person as a kid, or dumb, and something has to be said to justify excluding you. more...

Buddhism has had a major effect on who I am and how I think about the world. What I have learned is that I like all religions, but only parts of them. more...

We never left a set until we'd trashed it. more...

Motherhood definitely took the focus off of my work. And I didn't mind. I had a few panics when I thought that if I wanted to work I couldn't get a job anymore and then I would get one once in a while and it would make me feel better. more...

Even, today, when people tell me I'm beautiful, I do not believe a word of it. more...

I love and adore being a mother. It's the greatest gift I've ever been given. more...

But I think it is always difficult to have high expectations of yourself or anyone else. more...

There are so many ebbs and flows in life, but when you're raising small children, your family means everything. more...

But I had a very traditional background as well. My parents are neat people. more...

So, you know, parenting is a very intimate and amazing experience and one of the best experiences of my life. more...

For a writer, they say write what you know. As a performer, you find it in yourself, in your heart. You relate to the character. You try to live it, try to have it be real for you. more...

It's hard sometimes if you think a character should look a certain way and you're being pushed to do it differently. I've had fights over that. That's why it's so important that you work with good people. more...

I don't feel famous. more...

And I haven't read a lot of blogs but if someone writes about what they care about I'm sure it's interesting. more...

~You know how parents rattle on to you about, 'Oh, you won't believe your life will never be the same,' and you think, Why can't these people just get over it? All they're doing is yakking about their kids. It's such a bore. And then you have kids and you just want to do the same thing.~ more...

When I was first going through my separation, someone said to me, 'It will take you half as long as you were in the relationship before you'll feel better.' And I wanted to knock them out cold across the table. Because, of course, I was in agony. And the last thing I wanted to think was that I was going to stay that way for a long time. more...

I love comedy. I don't approach it any different. I'm not a comedian. I'm not a stand-up. I just do it like a part and personally, I love to watch comedies. If you don't get to do what you like to watch you get frustrated. more...

To be with a man who hasn't tried every line, who hasn't broken up with a woman every which way you can break up with them, is kind of nice. more...

I think actresses are imagined to be these subjects of great vanity. Life is change; physicality changes. It's transient, and that's a beautiful and a painful thing. more...

I wanted to seem completely invisible but whenever you're saying someone else's words and relaying the story of someone else's life, it's not you. more...

I don't think it takes a brain surgeon to understand how to read a story. more...

That's the wonderful thing about drama and writing and fiction: it's this wonderful shared experience that we all have. We can see into each other's lives. more...

More than just romantic comedy, I like romances: drama romance, romance comedy, comedy romance. I also go to the movies to escape. There are times when you go to learn, when you go to be moved, you go to be transported, and there are really times when you go to escape. And I personally escape more happily into a romance than I do violent movies. more...

I know so many women in their 30s who didn't get married, or they did and it didn't work out, or they didn't have children because they were trying to get their careers going, or because they were expected to be independent, plus have a family. They didn't feel secure enough. more...

Nobody makes a movie about a woman in her mid-30s who wishes she could have met someone to have children with and still doesn't know where to find a date. more...

I think everybody has a hard time connecting, but as you get older and you want more and you expect more and you know more, it's just different. If you start wanting too much from it without it naturally unfolding, then that makes it bad. If you start not wanting anything, then you are not serious. I mean it's just this conundrum of issues. more...

If you're not ready to be in a relationship, going out with someone much younger than you is probably a great idea, because you both can have a decent experience and hopefully nobody will end up feeling cheated when it ends. more...

Fun wouldn't be the right word... it was the most difficult, challenging, physical, extraordinary stretch I've ever had to make, in all those wild regards. more...

I'm an actress and mom, and I probably don't have enough of an active spiritual life. And I don't know why people run around calling themselves by the names of religions when they don't actually practise them. more...

Modeling is basically 'Buy more stuff! Don't you want some more stuff? It will make you look ten years younger and men will like you!' If I'd wanted to be a salesperson, I would have got a job selling. more...

When asked if I consider myself Buddhist, the answer is, Not really. But it's more my religion than any other because I was brought up with it in an intellectual and spiritual environment. I don't practice or preach it, however. But Buddhism has had a major effect on who I am and how I think about the world. What I have learned is that I like all religions, but only parts of them. more...

I think we are living in a time, where as a whole, as a community, people do want to push the boundaries. more...

One feels so despairing on some levels about what's going on in our culture, in regards to things like gender inequality. But there is progress. There is enhanced empathy and respect for others, we are fighting the tide, even though it seems like a tug of war sometimes. more...

Daring to me is having courage; it's a daily meditation to take breath and find strength. more...

The argument about marriage equality will one day seem as arcane and shocking to us as the fact that Rosa Parks had to get up and go to the back of the bus. more...

Reading recent history is good to humble yourself, and also to feel some hopefulness that there is progress. more...

As one does with a first child, I found out that my baby could roll by hearing the sound of her body hit the ground at 4 a.m. and obviously, for any new parent, that is the most horrifying thing that could happen, right? You're exhausted and you take your tiny little baby out and you put them on the bed to change diapers before nursing and you turn around and you discover... my baby can roll! And you think you're going to die. more...

I think that life force is invaluable. more...

It's one of the things that weirdly I always used to like about my job: that expressing the emotions of a writer or someone creative and breathing empathy and life into a character people can then identify with, that they'd feel less alone. more...
