I want my family to resemble the family I came from.
Marriage is actually really terrifying. It doesn’t work for many people.
I’m not very good at being a wife because I break all the rules.
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.
A girl told me my lips looked like somebody had pressed strawberry yogurt against my face.
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.
If I spread myself too thin, I’m not a good actor, I’m not a good mother, and I’m just really high-strung – and everybody hates me.
Some people think, if you’re in the public eye, that you have to have an answer for everything and it has to be boring.
I’m done with the whole idea of having my own children. It doesn’t seem like any fun.
My mother often says that she could never have done it if I had been the youngest, if she had other small children she had to cart around New York City for my auditions and go-sees (modeling auditions) and stuff.
Guys are much more obvious than they think they are.
My sister is Korean and my parents adopted her about three years before I was born and that is how I grew up.
I’m terrible with patience.
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?
My career is really important to me, but there have to be other great, important things in your life besides work.
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 think that everybody has a right to their own thoughts, their own feelings and their own private moments, if they want them.
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.
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.
If I have to be focused and watch what I say, then I have to be comfortable.
In my career, I’m very grateful for the opportunities.
There are some things that, if you say them out loud, will hurt the other person’s feelings. I tend to say them anyway. It’s better to be honest.
Hollywood likes to label everyone so you’re easier to identify.
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.
Adoption has been a part of my life and a part of my family, so it was how I wanted to start. It felt natural and right to me.
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.
