Having children is life-changing, to state the obvious. It's a gigantic shift in your life and I welcomed it.
I see a wiser person than when I was younger: having babies, and passing 30, were the turning points. What women in their 40s - I am 39 - lack in gorgeousness, they make up for in wisdom. I love ageing, despite the drawbacks - thinner, drier skin.
Then I became a mother and it just fills every space, that isn't filled with something else important. It's just like this incredible balloon that blows up and fills life up.
I can hardly find the words to describe the peace I felt when I was acting. My dysfunctional self could actually plug in to another self, not my own, and it felt so good.
When I am out and about I feel watched. It's become second nature. The only time I get to be private is in my work. That is when I liberate the ego. The blessed-out sensation of liberating the ego.
I never understood the point of juicing - I always thought I could get enough nutrients from eating fruit and vegetables - but now I'm a convert.
If I could change my appearance, I would have the gap between my front teeth put back in.
If we're all living in ourselves and mistaking it for life, then we're devaluing and desensitizing life.
I don't put the pressure on myself to be a very successful movie star. I want to enjoy being an actor and I want to be challenged by the roles I take.
I use the film industry as a pleasure for work and that kind of thing and it's not a pursuit to make me feel happy in my life.
I'd love to do yoga every day. I don't usually have time, but a few sun salutations go a long way.
