On the hurdle of making women-centric content in Hollywood: “I do sometimes come back from work like, ‘What the f*ck?’ But anger is good. It motivates us to strive to be better.”
On what motherhood has taught her: “What motherhood shows you is how selfless you can get. I’m ragged tired. Who cares? My kids are healthy, I’m happy.’”
On what she wants to teach her daughter: “What I want my daughter to learn from me is the value of hard work.”
On power versus success: “The real question is: Does power equal success? I mean, look at Trump. Trump is powerful. It doesn’t mean he’s successful, right?”
On today’s political landscape and her hope for the future: “I have hope for the future. None of this is permanent, this is a phase…and we will come out of it as a country.”
