‘The older I get, the more open-minded I get, the less judgmental I get. I have friends who I love and admire who have had an affair. When I was younger, I would have said, “He’s a terrible person” or “She’s a terrible person.” But who made these laws?’ My parents were married for thirty something years, and he said it was because they never wanted to get divorced at the same time. I think you do fall in and out of love and you just keep going, and every time you go through a really difficult phase, you rediscover something new and it just gets better. We’ve been married for more than eight years now, and we’re still into it.’
‘I’m an actor, and it’s in my DNA, it’s in my bones and I think I’ll always do it. It’s a difficult and intricate balance.'
On working with woman at GOOP & woman being critical towards other woman:
‘I like the companionship of working in a team; we’ve become a collective of women, which I love. Women really need to examine why they’re so vitriolic to other women; why they want to twist words, why they want to read about someone else in a negative light and why that feels good to them... But I also know a huge tribe of women who are loving and supportive of other women, in ways that are completely transformative.’
On woman's rights to define herself:
‘I think we are a generation of women who are different in a lot of respects, and some of us want to be ambitious, and for it not to be a dirty word. We want to be feminine and soft, we want to be maternal, we want to be sexual, we want to be explorers – and we can be a combination of all of these archetypes. You can be powerful, but you can also be vulnerable.'
