I don't have a lot of stomach for people who don't show up to a set knowing their lines because you're keeping 150 people waiting.
I feel responsible that everyone has a really wonderful experience and to do the best work possible, and to always know my lines and to always be on time and to bring a level to the show in terms of quality that other people will follow.
I'm one of those strange people: I really love going to the gym.
It's one thing in this business to actually work. 5 percent of the Screen Actors' Guild works. It's another thing to do work that's satisfying and that people are loving.
The reason I met my husband was because I remembered a friend's birthday. The moral of the story is: Remember people's birthdays.
I know this is going to sound corny, but I love my life. I love my baby, so I love getting to wake up with him. And I have the most amazing job, with writing that any actor would love and costars who I can't wait to see on Monday mornings. And I love coming home to my husband.
I love making money, but you can't live your life waiting to get rich in a job that no longer feeds you artistically.
I think that power comes in numbers, and we're in an industry where the actors need to have a bigger voice.
If you walk down the street and smile at someone, that will get passed on to the next person. That has the power to change someone's day.
It might be scary because you're taking a risk, but at the end of the day you can say you tried.
I'm the kind of person who always has to be on time and I'm incredibly professional.
I've always had a tomboy quality to me that I embrace and don't run away from. At the same time I'm a real girlie-girl.
A good wife is someone who thinks she has done everything right: raising the kids, being there for the husband, being home, trying to do it all.
I got pregnant at 40 by surprise. It's funny, because when we found out we were pregnant, I said, 'Okay, let's experience that.' You just have to just go with it because it's rare.
I'd rather go back to waitressing than play a character that I hate.
