On balancing motherhood and her career:
"The question of balance has always been kind of a funny one to me because I don’t think there is any balance. I feel like I’ve never done enough. I do think I’m pretty good at home, but trying to balance my energies outside the home? It’s a challenge; there’s so much more I want to do and can do. I was starting to do a lot more as my children are so independent, but now I have a new baby [Luna]. It’s wonderful, and I’m in a different place in my life, so I have a feeling it’s going to be a little different."
On one of her favorite film costumes:
"I’ve played a lot of interesting or odd characters— even in movies that maybe didn’t work out perfectly. I loved working on Sissy Hankshaw in Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, which I did with Gus Van Sant; she only had one outfit really: this leather jumpsuit, but I could zip off the legs or arms. I like the idea of the motility of it."
On her favorite places in New York:
"I love spiraling up the Guggenheim; it’s just so beautiful. The American Museum of Natural History is my other favorite. I actually went there when I was in labor with my second child. They tell you to walk, and where are you going to walk on January 14. I went to the Natural History Museum and walked around the Rose Center for Earth and Space spiral for hours."
