On being like everyone else:
"I get fat, I need to work out, I have pimples and I'm getting older – everything is happening for me exactly as it is for everyone else."
On her newly adopted son, Jackson:
"The amount of e-mails and congratulations hs been amazing. Everyone's been so lovely. [Jackson] is doing great. It's very hard for me to leave the house now!"
On keeping fit:
"I have to be disciplined, it's part of my job. So I train five days a week right now. I practice an incredibly hard yoga called power yoga. I cycle, I spin and I do all sorts of things that I like – because that's the key."
"I do have a problem with the fact that the US government hasn't stepped up enough to make gay marriage legal. Right now, the institution of marriage feels very one-sided, and I want to live in a country where we all have equal rights. It's not right that the government tells us who can love and what is good love."
"Friendship is one of the greatest gifts that you could receive. I have really, really good people in my life. I sometimes find myself wondering what I did in a past life to deserve the people I know! I don't take any day with them for granted. I don't treat them like they are going to be there forever, I treat them like they are here now. That's my philosophy."
