Confidence is everything in this business.
I feel very blessed to have two wonderful, healthy children who keep me completely grounded, sane and throw up on my shoes just before I go to an awards show just so I know to keep it real.
I think women are natural caretakers. They take care of everybody. They take care of their husbands and their kids and their dogs, and don't spend a lot of time just getting back and taking time out.
I have to admit I was dismayed when I found out 'type A' refers to a category of risk for heart disease - I thought it was just a nickname my mom gave me!
The joy we get as actors is out of transforming ourselves into something that's not necessarily anything true to ourselves. And it's a power - not being yourself, and being in the role; it's just like another prop.
It's funny that it all becomes about clothes. It's bizarre. You work your butt off and then you win an award and it's all about your dress. You can't get away from it.
Everybody needs love. Everyone deserves it.
I don't think I realised how stressed I was, being a single parent. It was really, really stressful. It's not easy on anybody.
When a police officer tells you to stay in the car, you stay in the car.
I spent a lot of my 20s just trying to make other people happy, rather than trying to figure out if doing that made me happy.
My ex-husband is very involved in raising our beautiful children. We're very lucky because we both grew up in working families in middle America. We're on the same page that way.
I think, like every working parent, I sometimes feel that there are not enough hours in the day. But overall, I'm very fortunate that my job has a lot of flexibility. I spend a lot of time with the kids, just around the house.
It really bothers me when people don't use coasters. Particularly on my table.
Lord knows, every day is not a success, every year is not a success. You have to celebrate the good.
I got a role in this movie called Freeway playing this really angry, aggressive, violent young woman who believed wholeheartedly in the truth. I had such satisfaction afterward, and I thought, That's what I want to do.
I take the kids to church and Sunday school. They love it. I really think it's important for a child to feel that there are things that are bigger than your life out there.
Many people worry so much about managing their careers, but rarely spend half that much energy managing their LIVES. I want to make my life, not just my job, the best it can be. The rest will work itself out.
Do I need men? I don't think it's about needing men. It's about love.
There's no bad consequence to loving fully, with all your heart. You always gain by giving love.
I started working on trying to sound like June from the very beginning.
