Everybody perceives me because of my career that I'm a movie star, or I'm this model, but I'm still the same person I was when I was a little girl.

Some suggestions for you :

My children haven't even seen most of my movies.

Every woman goes through a lot of agony before she decides in favour of her own happiness or that of her children.

Not many college students know what they want to do.

The thing is, we live in a contemporary world, and being able to make yourself the best person you can possible be can be difficult. But as long as you're trying to figure it out, and you're really looking in the right direction, everything's going to be all right.

One of the reasons I didn't really want to do TV earlier in my career was because it is so life-consuming, and I wanted to spend time with my kids and be a mother.

It kind of cracks me up when people say I'm hot because I just think that that's a term that I don't have to deal with anymore.

I don't pass judgment on anybody, but personally, I prefer a more natural look. I think it's helping my longevity in my career because I'm playing my age.

I've always been a very active person.

I'm sorry, but in my generation and where I came from, only sailors got tattoos. Not ladies.

I'm strong. I'm outspoken. I feel like I'm equal to men. I can walk in the woods just as much and as far as a man can. Yet I'm still female. I'm very female.

There's not a lot of light on television.

In modeling, because you're the center of attention, it builds up people's egos. Sometimes people lose touch with reality. But that happens with acting, too.

I think yoga has given me better posture. People don't realise how strong it makes you. You have to use your body weight to hold yourself. As you get older, you're supposed to lift weights, but I find that kind of boring. Yoga is lifting my own body.

I wish there was a news channel that really told you what was going on in the world, not just sensationalized news.
