Here’s what the 48-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On the world today: “We live in a time where there’s so much violence and so much hate and so much racism, and it’s important to remind us of our humanity, and it’s a little bit healing. I’m upset about the state of the world. It upsets me. So I try to do something, so at least I know that I’m not just sitting with the upsetness in my stomach.”
On her family: “I’ve never been apart from my daughter for more than two weeks. And same with François. We don’t separate for long periods of time. Never.”
On falling in love with her husband, Francois Henri Pinault: “I wish I knew [when I was younger] that I was going to fall crazy in love with the perfect man,” she says. “I was so worried, and I dated some people I shouldn’t have dated. You get desperate, and you start seeing wonderful things in, like, the wrong guys. I also found some pretty good guys. But I wish I could say to myself, ‘Hey, chill out. You’re going to get a great husband that’s going to adore you.’ I would have saved myself a lot of personal drama.”
