On having a normal life:"The idea of being at home and picking up kids from school and cooking dinner and then the husband comes home–there's something that seems really nice to me 'cause I never had that growing up. And it seems so enticing. But in my mind, I'm like, Well, I'll just play that in a movie and go about my own life, bizarre as it is."
On the paparazzi:
"I don't feel tough enough to be accosted by people. When I'm feeling particularly fragile, I just won't leave my house.
On her extra workouts for the Fifty Shades sequels:
"I think the human body is so sexy, and if I'm going to be naked, I want to look great."
"I don't have a boyfriend–why? You got one for me? Right now I find myself having the capacity to love my family and friends, and that's it."
On actresses she admires:
"Gena Rowlands is my all-time love. Nicole Kidman, Michelle Pfeiffer. I grew up watching their work; they are extraordinary. [Amy Schumer] I admire her so much. She's fearless."
