Here is what the 45-year-old Cake actress had to share with the mag:
On her thoughts on motherhood: “I don’t like [the pressure] that people put on me, on women—that you’ve failed yourself as a female because you haven’t procreated. I don’t think it’s fair. You may not have a child come out of your vagina, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t mothering—dogs, friends, friends’ children.”
On her fiance Justin Theroux: “I’m so proud of him. We have so much fun together… It was nice to learn how to sort of relinquish control and let someone really care deeply for you. It’s quite wonderful.”
On the recognition she’s getting for Cake: “A woman going physically unattractive is where you get recognition and some sort of respect. You read things like, ‘Oh, finally, she’s acting!’”
On attention being put on physical appearances of actresses: “Quite sexist, to be honest, because men don’t get that.”
