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.

Some suggestions for you :

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

Everybody asks me questions about the inside of James Franco's mouth.

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

I love little Peter Pan collars and little puff sleeves.

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

I'm in the middle of my own 'Project Runway' challenge given to me by my daughter's preschool. All the parents have to make an outfit for their kids, for school pictures, made entirely out of recycled objects. I can not believe I have homework.

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.

I'm really into makeup. I love it! I think it's so trendy to be like, 'Oh, I don't ever wear makeup,' but it's super fun, and I've always enjoyed it.

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

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.

I'm somebody who doesn't work with a stylist. I'll be honest with you, I'm a mom and it's just not something I want to put money toward because it's expensive to have somebody who helps dress you and I feel like I have to pay for preschool and so many things... so I don't have a stylist.

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.

In high school I had some famously egregious fashion missteps. I was really out there in fashion, I think because I wanted attention. I would wear crazy patterns, skin-tight pants and giant platform shoes.
