Every day is apparently like UFC Fight Night in the actress’ house.
Being a mother is not something really respected in this industry. If anything it's considered as a handicap. And that's unfortunate because it's not acknowledged, what we're juggling, what we're doing.
It’s exhausting, but it’s amazing and you can’t — until you have kids — imagine how much you could possibly love a human being. It’s really intense and really overwhelming.

[Motherhood is] fertile soil. It’s given me the ground that I needed to grow into something quite special.

I don't receive the same satisfaction from my career as I do from being a mother so I'm really happy.

Before you have kids, you really do not understand how all-consuming it is. You have one and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, my baby is my whole world’.

I have given birth, I have gestated and given birth to three children... I starred in a movie that opened worldwide, number one — twice! How much more f**king productive does a f**king woman need to be?
If you choose to engage your children all day, every day, it's exhausting. There's zero time for you to have adult thoughts, so your brain kind of turns to scrambled eggs sometimes.
You never sleep and you’re awake all night and your entire life is devoted to this little thing that needs you constantly. And I love it. It’s what I’ve wanted to do since I was a little girl.
