I've never wanted to be the ingenue.
I truly have a love-hate thing with the press.
With the breast-feeding, I really love the bonding. Real life is more important to me.
Being typecast is a great thing for an actor. I was considered one of the New York mob actors.
Being a publicist is like management in a lot of ways - you're their friend, you're their mother, you're their confidante.
Some people in LA are addicted. They have to be here. My personal life is stronger than my professional life, in terms of priorities.
I started doing makeup to make a living. Then I said, You're not supposed to be putting powder on other people. You're supposed to be powdering yourself.
I live in Italy part time, and they're obsessed with what's happening in LA too. They make fun of Americans, but the world wants to know what's going on in Hollywood.
I think my career would probably be in a better place had I been more aggressive. But I don't have it in me. I'm not a competitive person, and I'm also really private.
A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tries to give back as much as possible and help people. A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really deeply cares.
