1I wish I had a little more joy of cooking - because mostly I have anxiety of cooking. I'm so proud when things come out well.
2On The Affair (2014): The show is going to change next season - the structure of the show is going to change in an exciting way.
3I'm not really the nurturer type.
4My answer to a lot of things is to go to work. That's not everybody's answer.
5On The Affair (2014): They presented me with really challenging things to do and I really wanted to be up to the challenge. I think my work excited the writers and the writers' work excited me.
6Everyone in my family has seen me cry before.
7I tend to focus on what I'm doing at the moment, and that takes up the entire span of my focus.
8I've been misquoted a lot, and there's this tendency for people to put on to you how they think you should be or what they think you should feel.
9You can't just take care of everybody else all the time.
10I love Martin Amis.
11In a man, I like funny guys. A guy who doesn't have a lot of therapy, who's mature. A man, not a boy.
12I don't have much patience with sick people.
13Being bald is no fun.
14It's a life-changing thing to be in a position of needing help and being so lucky as to get it.
15Unfortunately in life, justice is not always achieved.
16I was fired from Growing Pains (1985). Kirk Cameron and I weren't a good match.
17I mean, I'm always wary about saying there's no great roles for women. I guess it's true and it's not true. It is the marketplace. Which is a little bit sad, in terms of what studios decide people will think is funny. I think the decisions about what entertains people are made before they know what entertains people. Now it seems really, really about the bottom line. But there is also new media! And it's easier than ever to make a movie now. . . . If I'm frustrated, I should write a movie or shoot a movie. And 25 years ago you couldn't.
18I prefer living in New York over Los Angeles -- or for that matter, any other city I've visited.
19I diagnosed my husband's recent appendix attack. At first, he didn't believe me. He was having pain in his lower abdomen and felt nauseous. He also had a fever which I said was suspicious. I even did a stomach press check and I knew. Still, I got out my medical textbook they gave me on ER (1994) and said, 'Let's go to the real doc.' He said, 'It's just the flu.' Of course, they admitted him and took out his appendix. Now he's like, 'Get over yourself. You're still not a real doctor.'
20I have so many insecurities they fight for prominence.
