The thing is most people are afraid to step out, to take a chance beyond their established identity
For the moment I prefer to be a beautiful woman of my age than try desperately to look 30.
Not caring more about what other people think than what you think. That’s freedom.
You have to acknowledge a problem exists before you can actually go about finding a solution.
I would say what scares me is that I’m going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I’m really not lovable, that I’m not worthy of being loved. That there’s something fundamentally wrong with me.
There’s nothing wrong with having a desire to want nice things. It’s when we place that as a measure of the value of ourselves that it goes askew.
I have had a love-hate relationship with my body.
Certainly I’m passionate and driven and quite relentless when I want something.
Despite what anti-aging ads say, growing older can be better. I feel better in my skin, 100 percent. You have greater effects of gravity, but the better sense of yourself you have is something I wouldn’t trade. Women who lie about their age – ‘why?’
I just don’t like the idea of having an operation to hold up the ageing process.
I’m a big believer in that if you focus on good skin care, you really won’t need a lot of makeup.
I don’t like to take my clothes off.
I said I would get better with each baby, and I have.
The truth is you can have a great marriage, but there are still no guarantees.
I had an essence in my life that I was nothing.
I want things to be the best they can be. I want greatness.
There’s this idea that if you take your clothes off, somehow you must have loose morals.
I like to connect to people in the virtual world, exchanging thoughts and ideas, when in the physical world we might never have the opportunity to cross paths.
I’m certainly not the first person to be in a relationship with a younger man, but somehow I was plucked out as a bit of a poster girl.
I had worked my whole life. Until I became a mother, that’s the only way I measured my value.
I know I have an eccentric, obsessive-compulsive side.
I’m intensely private, and I’ve openly shown annoyance at the paparazzi.
At its core Twitter is about sharing, and I think that in life we never feel better or more energized than when we’re giving to someone else.
When I’m at the greatest odds with my body, it’s usually because I feel my body’s betraying me, whether that’s been in the past, struggling with my weight and feeling that I couldn’t eat what I wanted to eat, or that I couldn’t get my body to do what I wanted it to do.
I used to think that what scared me was the idea of being abandoned until someone said to me, ‘Only children can be abandoned. Adults can’t be abandoned because we have a choice. Children don’t have a choice.’
You don’t come into this life wanting to be anything other than happy.
Some of my lowest points were the most exciting opportunities to push through to be a better person.
I entered this career having no background or connection to acting.
Unwillingness to risk failure is always there, but it gets harder when you feel you have more to lose.
Don’t let your wounds make you become someone you’re not.
There is no way to reach your fullest potential if you don’t really find the love of yourself.
I’m an incurable optimist and a go-getter – it’s in my nature to focus much more on what makes me happy than what makes me nervous.
‘Cougar’ has become so distasteful. I really hate that expression.
Models, even male models – how small they’ve gotten! It looks great for the clothes, but it’s not what you want in real life.
When one person is enslaved, we’re all enslaved.
I feel like I have the fortune of privilege, particularly as it relates to my children.
I think of myself as still being about five.
I’m honored if I can inspire somebody else.
