I had years of therapy to recover from this. A lot of it had to with being a people pleaser, being the ultimate good girl. I wanted everyone to like me. I didn't really have a voice. I was afraid of growing up.
I'm the most cynical person, and I know what that sounds like when you say, I don't drink and drive, and I don't. But I know people look at that with skepticism, and I understand.
I've been so in my moment about my life.
Life comes full circle.
You can stay in therapy your whole life, but you've got to live life and not talk about life.
You can't enjoy life if you're not nourishing your body.
Our family has gone through a very difficult time. My husband and I have taken the brunt of it. I've never known what it truly felt like to be so sad and desperate inside.
I remember that all of a sudden, the car felt like I couldn't control it. It was absolutely the most horrifying experience. We rolled over, off the freeway. I think there was something wrong with the car.
When I was 19 years old, I came down with anorexia. I had it for about a year before it became public. And it had a lot to do with my self-esteem.
Any actor will tell you, anybody in the public eye, that the tabloids are the worst kind of ramification of being a celebrity.
I had a very public battle with anorexia.
I love acting. But I love being a mother. To be a full mother and a full person, you have to do what you love, and that's acting. But I like the best of both worlds.
I have faith in the justice system, and what will happen will happen. I'm just trying to do the right thing.
You don't have the judgment after you've had the drink. If something truly catastrophic had happened that evening, I don't know how I could have lived with myself. I feel like I've gotten a second chance.
I knew that by getting behind the wheel of the car and having had something to drink, the responsibility laid on my shoulders.
