On her career and what’s most important:
My career’s good, but I think about my family. It’s just the two of us.
On her son:
After the best private schools, my college son, 20, is now a writer, trying to figure it out. Needing to like what he does. He writes essays, stories, and he’s also into music.
On taking care of her mother:
There’s also my mama, who was my date at the Oscars.
She lives in Florida, and I’ll give her anything she wants. But she doesn’t want anything. She remarried. She found her lucky sucker. So if you ask how’s Mama making it alone, you’re confused. She’s not alone. It’s me who’s alone. I’m always looking.
