Yes, I'm having a baby. I think it's so hard as a woman to give yourself a break. It's great to be healthy but you have to set a good example for your kids and know that it's not about a number on a scale but how you feel.

I love proving that I can do something.

I know so many people who actually just watch television on their computers now and don't even really watch their TV anymore.

I remember dealing with bullies in high school and being put down because I was different.

After 'Freaks and Geeks,' I dealt with several producers who wanted to cover up all my beauty marks, every single mole on my body. They tried to cover them on my first two episodes of 'Dawson's Creek,' and it just looked ridiculous, so I had to put my foot down. But it's not something I'm insecure about.

No one cares what you ate for breakfast. Unless it's something really spectacular, don't tweet me your breakfast, I don't care.

I make sure that I'm not focused on other things when I'm spending time with my children.

The good thing about being pregnant is that I don't have to worry about sucking it in or dieting!

A dress is so great because you can grab a dress, then you either wear it with tights or no tights, depending on what the weather is outside. You can throw a little jacket over it; you can take the jacket off. It's very easy.

I was always a very quirky kid. I remember very early like fourth or fifth grade doing pratfalls to make my friends laugh, like falling on the ground on the playground and doing like bits and characters.

Six years of your life is a long time to do anything, and especially in this business, where you get so used to being nomadic and moving on to different jobs.

For the most part, these awards shows, while they are fun, they're high-pressure for the people who are nominated and for those walking the red carpet.

I actually feel like, for a lot of my career, I wasn't able to show my comedic range. I did a lot of dramas and dramedies. I was on 'E.R.' That's not generally thought of as a funny show.

I'm actually incapable of lying. I'm like a parody of a person who can't lie.

It's ludicrous that my friends in California aren't able to legally get married. It's a civil rights issue. In 20 years we're going to look back at tapes of these antigay people saying ridiculous things on the news and it's going to sound as antiquated as the newsreels of horrible racists from the '50s.

Very quickly, kids take your plan and say, 'Ha!' so you have to learn to be adaptable, or you will be literally miserable.

When you go into to vacationing with kids, what people don't get is that there is a portion of it that's going to be unpleasant because you're traveling with children. When people have these expectations that it's going to be perfect or amazing, that has never been my experience.

I'm a jewelry girl. I became with friends with designer Irene Neuwirth a few years ago. At that point, I just used to wear my wedding rings. Very low key. Now, if I could, I'd be draped from head to toe in her jewelry all the time. Everything she makes is beautiful.

My mother accidentally gave me food poisoning. She fed me baby carrots for a snack before Christmas dinner - but they had expired in June! I threw up for the next 24 hours.

I just like working with people that I respect and think are really funny.

I try to be aware of my kids' autonomy in terms of my Instagram, but I do post them a lot. I would never want to post something that would embarrass them or that later they'd feel some sort of shame for.

I had really specific ideas of what kind of mom I was going to be and what kind of things I was going to provide for my child - even down to the organic, wooden toys Birdie was going to be allowed to chew on. Then cut to my daughter being obsessed with every plastic, 99-cent store toy.

I went to public high school in Scottsdale, Arizona, and I certainly wore a lot of makeup in high school. I experimented with a cat eye for a semester, and then, you know, a strong red lip because Courtney Love in Hole was all the rage.

I have my own grown-up versions of temper tantrums, too. I have a hard time not getting hurt when my kids have meltdowns.

It's hard to find a way to be good to your husband, be good to your kid, and be good to yourself.

I love little Peter Pan collars and little puff sleeves.

I think people find a lot to relate to in my social media, being a mom, and trying to live my best life, and I'm a fan of Oprah and other things people are fans of, and my heart breaks when there are tragedies, like everyone else, and I want to help.

Now that I'm a wiser, older human, when I do photo shoots, I specifically say, 'Please do not airbrush my moles out.' Because they will do it, to make you homogenized.

From time to time I think I made some errors in judgment, but I have some really fashionable friends and I feel I've cultivated my own sense of style and what I feel comfortable with over the years.

I love my nose! I was so nervous when I got pregnant that I was going to get that weird nose spread that you sometimes see pregnant ladies get.

As an actor, it's always fun when you're able to feel like there's freedom to explore things and try out jokes and be funny.

I was asked to lose weight by a network for a TV pilot. The conversation happens because you get a job, and your agent or manager calls, and they say, 'They are so excited about you. They just think there is no one better for this part, and they want you to look and feel your best. They really feel that that could include losing 15 or 20 pounds.'

This isn't just 'Scrubs' with new actors. 'Cougar Town' has a heart to it that's all its own.

I'm kind of lucky that we've finished shooting 'Cougar Town,' so I'm able to kind of just enjoy my pregnancy and be a stay-at-home mom and go to prenatal Pilates and do all that fun stuff that, if I were working, would be almost impossible to do.

If you're not in a place where you're grateful that your show keeps getting renewed, and you can't figure out a way to keep it fresh, you should pick another career.

Don't get me wrong: I love 'Moana!' But when it gets to the point where you find yourself singing Disney songs in your dreams, you have an issue.

I don't ever feel like I have to stop myself from complaining about how hard it is to be an actress. I mean, it's not that hard.

We have traveled with our kids since they were babies. We've had some crazy times, obviously, with the kids. My husband and I both work, and they just really look forward to our vacation and our time to be together to reconnect.

Any character, for me, always comes together in the hair, makeup, and wardrobe. Shoes especially. For some reason, shoes really do it for me because they help me figure out how the character walks.

I've been going to the same dermatologist since I was on 'Freaks and Geeks.'

I'm so highly competitive: I just want to win.

I love Banana Boat's brand. They don't test on animals; they're natural. Their kids' products are amazing.

The idea that we all have to be Pinterest-perfect, killing it on all fronts, drinking our probiotics, remembering to have Rishi, and putting all these things in our kids' lunches - there's a lot of pressure to do all of the things. And we can't do all of the things. I can do a few things, and I've got them nailed. I think that's more realistic.

It is important to give your kids that individualized attention while also making time for your marriage and for yourself.

Birdie is amazing and such an incredible child and I'm having such a great time being a mom but I still want to have a career and I still look forward to auditions and parts, and when I don't get them I'm disappointed.

Anybody who works with me knows this: I always repeat wardrobe in my characters. We're trying to play real people.

My children make me cry on a daily basis about everything. Tears of joy, tears of pain, tears of sadness - all the tears, all the time.

My husband has no desire to work with me; don't get it twisted. He gets paid a lot of money to write giant movies. He's not into humoring me with my projects. But, that being said, I did have the story credit on 'Blades of Glory,' and writing is something that I've always been interested in pursuing more.

I'm flattered that people want to hear me talk about nothing.
