My mom really inspired me. She has always taught me it's not about us, it's about what we can give back.
Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away.
What does it mean when people applaud? Should I give 'em money? Say thank you? Lift my dress? The lack of applause - that I can respond to.
Most awards, you know, they don't give you unless you go and get them - did you know that? Terribly discouraging.
Survival can be summed up in three words - never give up. That's the heart of it really. Just keep trying.
My kids aren't celebrities. They never made that bargain. We were offered a lot of money to sell pictures of our kids when they were born. You'll notice there aren't any. I make no judgment about people who decide differently; a lot of them give the money to charity. For me, it was a matter of principle.
