On being afraid of heights:
I am afraid of heights and it's funny because I've always been afraid of heights. My father was very afraid of heights, and it becomes one of these things that you say about yourself, "I'm left-handed and I'm afraid of heights." About seven years ago, Danny and I were invited on this hike. Hike is a sophomoric way to describe what we were invited on, but I'll just say hike. I thought to myself, 'Gosh, I'm so afraid of heights,' and then I thought, 'Am I still afraid of heights?' Because I never put myself in that position, so how do I even know? It's just this thing that I say about myself. Well, I'm happy to confirm for you I am afraid of heights. It was the most harrowing, maybe seven or eight hours of my physical life, and if it had not been for Danny truly lovingly talking me through one foot in front of the other, I don't know what I would've done, because really it's this thing that takes over your whole body. It's not like, 'That's scary. That looks so high.' It's your throat closing, your body just breaking down. It's a real thing, so yes, I am afraid of heights.

On if unconditionally love will be enough for her children in this world today:
Will anybody’s? It’s different than when I might have said to my mom, 'Mom, you don’t know what it’s like to be a teenager today,' even though she probably did. Danny and I really don’t know what it’s like to be a teenager today. Sometimes my kids ask me things and I just say to them, 'I’m going to say no, and I’m going to look into it because I don’t even know what we’re talking about.

On the impact of this time in culture has on her:
I think it’s impossible not to be affected by it. When Donald Trump was elected, my daughter, Hazel, came down and the TV was on, and it said on the crawl at the bottom, trump wins, and she kind of gasped because of course we all had this collective hope that something else was going to happen. And what I saw in that exact moment was the complete need for me as a parent to find a way to make her feel that she could still have a voice. That’s why we went to the first Women’s March in Washington—I wanted her to feel like she still had a place in the world, that she could still believe in what she believed in, even though someone else was now president. It was very powerful for me to have her in a way be my leader into this space of marching and participating in being a citizen of this country.
