On her character in the 'Girl on the Train':
The prosthetic people created these molds that clipped onto my teeth to make my face seem puffy. When we were filming, we were very specific about where she was during the day: how drunk she was, whether or not she was hungover. Kyra(movie make-up artist) is so talented. She used gray eye shadow under my eyes to bring out the circles and a little brush to paint spider veins all over my face. I kept saying to the crew, ‘All right, can we get them back in here and make her look a little more drunk and ugly?
On having another baby:
After we got home from the hospital, I didn’t shower for a week, and then John and I were like, ‘Let’s go out for dinner.’ I could last only about an hour because my boobs were exploding. When the milk first comes in, it’s like a tsunami. But we went, just to prove to ourselves that we could feel normal for a second.
On her two kids:
It’s a zoo!. When there was just one kid, somebody would get to sit down. Now nobody gets a break. But John is the most unbelievable daddy. He prioritizes Hazel so she doesn’t miss me too much because I’ve been so consumed with the baby. Hazel is slowly getting used to having a little sis. There have been no physical attacks or suffocations. She fluctuates between complete disinterest and moments of sheer passion.
On traveling & living in NY versus LA:
It’s hard to really travel much with a newborn. Most people who live in Brooklyn are very respectful of our privacy, so I feel protected here. You don’t get screamed at in the street. If anything, people are like, ‘Oh, I love your movie,’ and that’s it. Famous people are everywhere, so there’s a more cavalier attitude toward celebrities. There’s an expectation. ‘You’re going to take a picture with me’ is a phrase I’d hear a lot.
