Check out a few excerpts below:
On preparing for her second child:
“The first time around, every moment was so new and terrifying and now I know what to expect. It’s like ‘It’s fine, I’ve been there before.’ With Honor, I was constantly asking myself ‘Is she moving? Is her heart beating?’ I’d worry about everything, and with this baby I don’t have the same anxieties.”
On balancing motherhood & her career:
“After I had Honor I didn’t leave the house for a while. It was all about changing diapers and feedings and still trying to get back in to the routine of my [acting] thing. I love what I do. But unless it’s worth it, I’m not going to spend time away from my daughter. Before I had her, work was all I had. Now it’s not.”
On the possibility of more kids:
“I just have to feel it out,” she says with a wink. “See how my 30s treat me. I just try to live in the moment.”
On showing off your shape:
“If you are sporting a pregnant belly, it’s better to show it than to hide it. If you look in the mirror and you look really wide and frumpy, then you’re going to appear really wide and frumpy. The more figure-forming your clothes, even though you have more curves, the better. I like long, thin sweaters that kind of hide my hips and my booty, so there’s not a huge emphasis on how big they’re getting.”
On her insecurities:
“I was a lot more insecure when I was younger. I was very sensitive to criticism. Now I’m definitely a lot more self-assured.” In 2008, she told Latina: “All of the stuff I got made fun of as a kid – bubble butt, fish lips, the dark skin – I’m proud of now.”
On landing her breakthrough role:
“I certainly knew the significance of Dark Angel because I knew how difficult it was just to get to that point. A lot of people didn’t even give me a chance based on how racially ambiguous I looked.”
On studying Spanish:
“I’ve definitely considered moving to a Spanish-speaking country for a little while, even if it’s just a month or two, because I think at the end of the day that’s how you really learn.”
It’s great that Jessica is embracing her Latina heritage but what about her black hubby? We saw zero mention of Jessica’s bi-racial spouse Cash Warren. And we’re curious about how Jessica feels about Honor and the new baby’s racial identity being that they are the offspring of two bi-racial parents. Think she’ll jump on the “one drop” bandwagon with Halle Berry???
