My father has a general rule. He says if I haven't done it in real life I shouldn't do it on-screen.
When I was 7 years old, I put on shows for everyone at my grandpa's funeral. I was always the little entertainer.
I grew up in the classic American-Jewish suburbia, which has a whole different sense of what it means to be Jewish than anywhere else in the world.
I love being a mum, but it's much more intensive work than being an actress - going to work feels like you've got a day off. Not that I want a day off from being a mum; it's just perhaps I had this impression before that mums don't work. But they work more than anyone.
