I think it's sad that there seems to be one definition of beauty in Hollywood/New York. It's such a cliche, but I think it's true that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
If I wasn't acting, I would probably be working with children. I was a camp counselor growing up and I loved it.
I have a really beautiful mother. She is close to 60, and to this day doesn't wear a speck of make up or dye her hair, and everyone who meets her is completely dazzled by her. She seriously glows.
Onstage, of course, you have the luxury of rehearsal and discovery and time and comfort, which then turns into terror when you actually have to put it in front of people.
I'm an actress and I want to act, and I'm a mom and I want to be with my kids, and it's trying to find a way to do both.
