Here’s what the 37-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On being grateful for social media’s late start: “I did things in public that were so ill-advised. I’m so thankful there was no social media back then. My publicist never had a child, I believe, because she had promised her firstborn to so many journalists to quash stories about me. But I had no sense of reality, because I was plucked out of reality when I was eight years old.”
On marriage, motherhood and shedding immaturity: “Marriage shows you your flaws in how you deal with things, and having a child forces you to grow up at the speed of light. I’m a completely different person than I was before I had my child. Because I was so celebrated for being a child, I think I held onto that immaturity for a very long time. It was the thing that made me special. Then at a certain point, like 35, it’s not so special to be immature.”
On her first role as a leading lady: “I’ve never been cast in this sort of romantic lead. I’m not a traditional leading lady. In life people look different, but in movies there is a certain standard of beauty. It doesn’t bother me that people didn’t see me that way, because I did see myself that way.”
