On her love for looking natural:"What's released me most from the fear of aging is self-awareness. I've never determined my value based on my looks or anything physical. I've been through a lot in life, and what has gotten me through is strength of character and faith."
On her & Annalise Keating style:
"If I were to compare my style to Annalise Keating, I would say that I have absolutely no style. Annalise Keating is an Alexander McQueen, kinda Max Mara girl. That's not me. I have a five year old, so..."
On loving to relax:
"I am addicted to spas. If we go to a hotel, we'll be the only people in that spa for hours. We'll start at 5 in the morning sometimes."
On not feeling like a celebrity:
"I know people always say that I'm a star and a celebrity, but I never feel like one. Taking care of a 5-year-old, cooking at home, and running to the set when you've had four hours of sleep, you don't feel like a movie star. Then, every once in a while, you put something on that makes you feel cute."
