On Wellness:

“I use organic products, but I get lasers. It’s what makes life interesting, finding the balance between cigarettes and tofu. I’ve probably tried everything. I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I’m 50. I’ll try anything. Except I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!” – Harper’s Bazaar’s, 2013

“Every woman can make time [to work out] — every woman — and you can do it with your baby in the room. There have been countless times where I’ve worked out with my kids crawling around all over the place. You just make it work.”- New York Daily News, 2010

On Beauty:

“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”

On Health:

“I try to eat organic food when I can, eat local food when I can, and eat as little processed food as possible. But, sometimes you need a bag of Doritos and a beer in an airport. We have to be modern and easy on ourselves as well.” – InStyle, 2016

On Self-Reflection:

“At first I was lying there, like, What am I not doing? What am I not doing? But then I thought, Can you take one hour? It’s not like you’re doing this every day. So I really let everything go. And after, I thought, I wish I could get to this place every day, at least for a little while.” – Self 2016
