But, as my mother used to tell me, two wrongs don't make a right. But I soon figured out that three left turns do.
I see myself being a great-grandmother at my great-grandson's graduation from a school that has my name on it.
When I was growing up, my mother would take me to plays and museums, and we'd talk about life. Those times helped shape who I became.
My grandmother told me: 'Never be in debt to anyone or anything.' Which is probably why I've never been financially extravagant - I still go to Costco. I'm always conscious of living within my means.
I was conceived after doctors told my mother she'd never have children. I'm a miracle - we all are.
Robert Walker as Bruno was excellent. He had elegance and humor, and the proper fondness for his mother.
My mother and I were on welfare and food stamps until I was 18, so I've always had this ethos of, like, 'try and make a little bit of money now because you don't know what's going to happen tomorrow.'
A part of me wants to sort of try and sound cool and feed this myth that I'm some sort of glamorous lothario, but I was raised by women - my mother and her mother and my aunts - and as a result, most of my friends have always been women.
I have a great relationship with my mother-in-law. We're both Leos, we understand each other.
When the mothers start to shatter, then everything just comes undone.
If you are a nurturing mother, and a good one, you can go to play groups, sit on the floor and play all the games, and have tea with the other mothers, but wouldn't you like to think that's not all there is? That you haven't hung up your high heels without knowing how to walk in them?
I'm not very social when I'm off the promo trail, because I step into wife and mother mode. It's very reclusive.
I love the classic crooners, but I got that from my mother - she worked in a record store.
I'm a mother, and that's really important. Today, the mother and the musician can sit next to each other. Even when the musician is out there in full swing, the mother doesn't get switched off.
That's my parenting style - 'Go watch the TV.' I'm one of 11 children, and my mother's parenting style was, 'There's the TV. Go watch it. Mommy's got 10 other people to take care of.'
