My mom said I was a handful. Now I'm helpful.
I'm a layperson. I barely got out of high school. I have no business telling people what to do or my big philosophy on life. I'm certainly not going to write any sort of memoir.
I've been going through photos of my mother, looking back on her life and trying to put it into context. Very few people age gracefully enough to be photographed through their aging.
My marriage? Up to now everything's okay. But it's a real marriage - imperfect and very difficult. It's all about people evolving somewhat simultaneously through their lives. I think we've emotionally evolved.
Now all of a sudden I'm so less interested in pretending to be a lot of other people, and much more interested in being me.
The more I like me, the less I want to pretend to be other people.
People get real comfortable with their features. Nobody gets comfortable with their hair. Hair trauma. It's the universal thing.
Getting sober just exploded my life. Now I have a much clearer sense of myself and what I can and can't do. I am more successful than I have ever been. I feel very positive where I never did before, and I think that's all a direct result of getting sober.
I've been in showbusiness all my life, but as an actress I have never been overly driven.
All the work built my fame and certainly made me more money, but the toll it took in my home was not good.
Hollywood is the backdrop of my family, and I know that the movie business is incredibly cruel as you get older.
I think happiness comes from self-acceptance. We all try different things, and we find some comfortable sense of who we are. We look at our parents and learn and grow and move on. We change.
I think my capacity to change has given me tremendous happiness, because who I am today I am completely content to be.
With short hair you have to get a haircut every two or three weeks. And if you're coloring your hair, you have to color it that often. Every time I did it, I felt fraudulent.
I try to go to the gym three times a week. And I have to watch what I eat. I'm a normal person.
