On her fears since having children:
[I’ll] have a huge mortality crisis and get terribly upset that one day [I’ll have to] leave my children behind. That has crippled me a couple of times since I’ve had kids: the notion that one day they’ll have to be without me.

On her new sense of perspective:
…it doesn’t matter if your dress looks bad or if you can see the outline of your Spanx… it’s just such small potatoes, you know?

On the time when her breastmilk leaked over her couture dress at a fashion event:
Back in the day, I would have been in the bathroom in tears. I would have been trying to leave. But it was just kind of funny. It was so ridiculous. I thought, ‘If I’ve got breastmilk coming out of my dress, then that just shows what it’s like to be a working mother in the 21st century. Whatever.

On whether giving birth has changed the way she feels about her body:
Yes, I think all that stuff has got easier. Your body has a totally different function. I’ve always been funny about my legs and I won’t wear anything above the knee. I hate my thighs.

On wanting to be everything for your children:
I used to talk down about myself a lot... you know, 'Ugh, I feel so gross today, I feel so fat today. I look ugly today.' And I just don't do that any more because I don't want my children to feel or talk about themselves that way.

On hearing rumours of a real-life lynching taking place in Atlanta while filming Mudbound:
It was so crazy because, you know, that feels historical and it wasn’t. I think because I live in London, I suppose I have an idea that we’re all very multicultural and everyone is very accepting and I had no idea the extent to which racism is still rampant in America… I was na├»ve to how bad it is still today.
