I don't wear a lot of jeans, which I know is a controversial statement. I just don't feel the most like myself in jeans.

Some suggestions for you :

I was in New York and I went to a meatball shop with my friend and there was paparazzi there and I thought, 'How did you know that someone was gonna come to this meatball shop?' But I was pregnant and I wanted a meatball sub and let me tell you, it was delicious.

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.

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.

I have to make a dress out of recycled materials for my kid's preschool 'Project Runway'-like assignment. I'm currently fusing plastic bags.

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

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.

If I snack, it's generally hummus on Rice-Thins or Nut-Thins crackers and some guacamole. If I need something sweet, I have dark chocolate chips stashed in my freezer, and I'll eat a few to satisfy my sweet tooth - but only if there aren't any cinnamon gummy bears around. I'm a sucker for those!

Nobody wants to see a bejeweled pregnant lady from top to bottom.

I had a baby with no pain medicine, mainly because most people I talked to didn't think I'd be able to do it. So there!

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 always pack a travel snack bag. You don't want to get stuck without snacks no matter where you go!

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 like some pants; I just don't like jeans very much. Dresses are so much easier because I don't have to think very hard.

As parents, you want to try to mitigate your children's pain.
