Flying is such a joy. You just want to hoot.
So it really does have a sort of bittersweet quality. Kids like to have adventures and to believe they can fly, but there's also that fear about people leaving you.
I never realized until recently how much my life parallels Peter Pan.
I was always very active as a kid. I would climb on roofs and jump off using my parents' bed sheet, hoping it would open like a parachute. I was always getting hurt, breaking a leg, you know, bruising, cracking my head open.

I've been able to play a kid up to this point and pretend that I'm not a grown-up - well, at least for two hours a night!
It's really hard to separate fantasy from reality.
Our athletes are our heroes.
In high school I never went to the prom because I was too consumed with gymnastics. Also, with my hair in pigtails and looking about 10, I wasn't exactly date material.
There's so much denial in gymnastics. It's a beautiful sport but the other part is numbing. You become machinelike. They'll refute this, but I've been around it. I know.
Acting allows me the freedom to let go, to be in the moment, to be spontaneous. I no longer have the fear of losing, of failure.
Seeing the show is like a visit to the fountain of youth for parents and the children.
I have three dogs and a cockatoo.
I just like to act.
I'll talk to kids afterward and somebody will always say, 'I'll leave my bedroom window open for you.
