Having children is my greatest achievement. It was my saviour. It switched my focus from the outside to the inside. My children are gifts, they remind me of what's important.
I feel beautiful when I'm at peace with myself. When I'm serene, when I'm a good person, when I've been considerate of others.
But I do know focusing on the exterior doesn't make me happy. If I want peace and serenity, it won't be reached by getting thinner or fatter.
It's not vanity to feel you have a right to be beautiful. Women are taught to feel we're not good enough, that we must live up to someone else's standards. But my aim is to cherish myself as I am.
For a while I was on the cover of every Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, which was regarded as the pinnacle of success in America.
I try to meditate every morning. It relaxes me, clears my mind, and sets my day off on the right foot before things get too manic.
My favorite body part is my heart. Nothing beats loving and being loved.
If I have a choice between putting my kids to bed and going to a party, I'll put my kids to bed. If I have a choice of going to a restaurant or having friends round, I'll have friends round. Every time.
You check to see the facts are correct where business is concerned but if I read everything that was written about me, I'd end up feeling totally insecure about myself.
Acting and modeling have nothing to do with each other.
Anyway, I believe you don't fix the inside by putting something on the outside.
As long as people want to see me in movies, and as long as I find it interesting, I'll keep working.
I choose movies, I never choose roles. I look at the script. I look at the director. I look at the other actors - and then the role.
I don't believe we own our children, they're their own souls who make their own choices, we just guide and support them.
I eat like a horse!
I wanted so badly to study ballet, but it was really all about wearing the tutu.
I just happen to like the work. I like preparing for a role. I like reading. I like analyzing. I like literature. I like emotions. I like working with other actors.
I try to focus on eating seasonally and organic whenever possible. It can be a challenge, but it has a huge effect on my weight, my health, and the environment.
A celebrity name is never enough for an intelligent mass market... truly successful businesses are born of passion and heartfelt interest.
Being a public person doesn't necessarily mean you're a piece of meat for everybody.
