I love film. After a yummy meal for the whole family and some truly great friends we often go out to see something beautiful and unique.
What I’ve learned is I want to enjoy my life and food is a big part of it.
I love being. There’s so much wisdom in it. You wake up in the morning and you think Hey isn’t it great just being?
I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs.
Even actresses that you really admire like Reese Witherspoon you think ‘Another romantic comedy?’ You see her in something like ‘Walk the Line’ and think ‘God you’re so great!’ And then you think ‘Why is she doing these stupid romantic comedies?’ But of course it’s for money and status.
I try to remember as I hear about friends getting engaged that it’s not about the ring and it’s not about the wedding. It’s a grave thing getting married. And it’s easy to get swept up in the wrong things.
Our marriage is between us. If we decide to continue being together or not it’s our business.
My life comes down to three moments: the death of my father meeting my husband and the birth of my daughter. Everything I did previous to that just doesn’t seem to add up to very much.
I wouldn’t say I’m a very original thinker but if I have a good experience with something I’ll want to take it further or adapt it in some way.
I spend a good portion of my dinner-party conversation defending America because no matter what the political agenda it’s still a fantastic amazing place.
I’ve had a very interesting career. I get to do amazing things and work with amazing people and travel and learn languages – things most people don’t get the opportunity to do.
