I don't want to be the person digging my own grave.

I'm a sappy mom now. I didn't think I would be. I thought I'd be a cool mom who keeps everything in perspective.

I like predictability because I know what I'm getting into.

There were so many lean years. A lot of lean years.

I'm not really a first-move kind of gal.

Of course, of course I'm grateful. How can I not be grateful? I have been afforded such a wonderful life.

I'm not very good at being a wife because I break all the rules.

The mouthier I got, the more I'd be celebrated.

I want my family to resemble the family I came from.

When something disappointing happened, my mother would remind me not to let that become my focus. There's still so much to be grateful for.

I'd be a terrible secret agent. I can't keep a secret and I'm not sneaky.

In my career, I'm very grateful for the opportunities.

Isn't it so weird the day you wake up and you're just going with the flow? And you just suddenly are a mom.

My mother is a realist, and she's had biological and adoptive children, and she said it's no different: No matter what, they're putting a stranger into your arms. You don't know them yet.

My career is really important to me, but there have to be other great, important things in your life besides work.

I'm the most uncoordinated clumsy, klutzy person. I always had a bruise, I always tripped and fell.

My mother is a great source of advice and wisdom and consolation for me.

People make mistakes - they say things they shouldn't have or didn't necessarily mean. But I strongly believe in consequences. If there are none, someone might feel like they've gotten away with something, or that what they said couldn't have been that bad.

I've never really been America's sweetheart, but for a minute I think that's what they wanted me to be.

I'm not always so nice.

I just ultimately wanted to be a mother. I love children.

We are all human beings, part of the human race, and we need to be compassionate and giving and kind with one another.

I think a lot of women innately know how to play their hand. I'm not a big one for the rules.

So much about living life, to me, is about humility and gratitude. And I've tried very hard to have those qualities and be that person and I'm just so disappointed in myself that I allowed it to slip.

I'm done with the whole idea of having my own children. It doesn't seem like any fun.

I'm a talker. I love a good debate.

I don't have a lot of discipline.

I'm too lazy and I like food and I like my free time too much to spend it working out!

As women, we have more of a tendency to be people-pleasers, and I know a lot of women who are not vocal about what makes them happy.

I keep kind of making certain mistakes in public appearances over and over again.

I was the youngest child and really spoiled. I loved to play make-believe. I loved pretending to be all kinds of different people and it just seemed natural that I would go into acting.

I prefer a kiss that is so much more than just a tongue in your mouth.

Obviously my career's important to me and I'm really, really passionate about trying to keep it.

I always assume I look better than I actually do. I'll feel pretty good about myself when I leave the house, then I'll see a picture and think, 'Crap, I had no idea that's what I was looking like.'

I'm not terribly sentimental.

My worst habit used to be smoking but I quit.

If I start going back to church, I'd have to stop the smoking and drinking, and I wouldn't be able to curse any more.

Even if you plan a marriage and a family, you are never quite prepared for the reality versus how you imagined it. In a lot of ways it's better, and in a lot of ways it's worse. That's life, right?

I want to stay in the moment and enjoy the great things that are happening.

I used to weigh myself every day at a certain time of day. Then I would write down the number and measure my body fat. It wasn't a healthy way to live.

I'm terrible with my workout regime and following it strictly. I'm terrible with a healthy diet and following it strictly. I'm terrible on the weekends about getting up at reasonable hours and all of those things. But, when it comes to my work and the discipline it takes to get to work on time - I hate unprofessionalism.

Kids are a huge sacrifice; they change everything - but I'm ready to work for things of greater importance than going out to meet someone for dinner at 10 o'clock at night.

I like going on location for films.

I can hide, and my husband's just terrible at finding me. I do like to jump out from behind doors and scare him.

I don't make big grand gestures, generally.

I never would rule out a great character or a great story. I don't care what the forum is. If I get to tell a story that I'm excited about, I'm in.

I totally wouldn't mind being able to wave my hand head to toe and have, like, a whole new outfit.

A lot of children don't find forever homes because they're on that special-needs list, even if it's because of something as simple as her mother smoked cigarettes for a month, not knowing she was pregnant.

I have bad feet and I have weak ankles.
