On her life:
In my life, for sure. You know it’s the beginning of something, but you don’t know what it’s the beginning of. My life is...a very different life. But it’s the life that I always wanted since I was a little girl. When I was four or five, I was already performing, and the characters in my games were always mothers. I really wanted to be a mother, for as long as I can remember. But I did it when I felt the time was right—the right time, the right person.

On her children and motherhood:
The thing is, I never speak about the children in interviews. I don’t care if people think I’m strange; that’s sacred for me. So let me think how I can address that without talking about them...It’s the thing that has made me happiest. But there are a lot of things that have surprised me about it. It’s like a revolution inside you—a very animal-like one. The whole world looks different. You’ll never think of yourself first again, and I think that’s a very good thing. It happens in a second.

On Time's Up:
A teacher or a doctor, they’re not going to get a microphone and somebody asking them: ‘What’s your situation? Are you suffering these things?’ So it’s important to me to make clear that I’m not just talking about our industry. It affects women in all industries and every single country, and I speak for them, the ones that are never going to be asked that question. It’s good to remember that men can be victims of this too. This can’t be about more division. If we don’t do this together, it’s useless.

On her health:
I’ve always done something—meditation and yoga and therapy. I feel like I constantly need to be emptying the glass, you know? I’m not scared of looking back. It’s a fascinating part of life.
