You know what you are best at, and writing is just not my thing, but I like it.
I was such a private person before I started 'The Talk.' I don't know what happened! It almost feels like I've started a second life. In my previous lifetime, I didn't talk about stuff. Now I'll discuss anything. It's crazy!
I like going to New York. I like the galleries and the theatre and the restaurants and bars and music. I think that city is more alive than Los Angeles.
I am ashamed to admit I watch a lot of reality shows like The Osbournes and The Bachelor.
Respect your kids. They are their own people. I think sometimes we expect kids to be perfect when we're not perfect.
My twin in the show is Molly Stanton who is so sweet and great and she is totally different from me.
I think people sometimes get stressed out when they have a newborn and an infant. Try to enjoy it because the time is so fleeting, and soon enough, they'll be running around and be more independent. You're going to miss that time.
I became a vegetarian at age 13 because I was into animal issues and felt like it was kinder not to eat animals.
I'd just love to have an audience and it's the most fun in the world to get a new script every week and have the audience come in, and work with those actors.
I pretty much only write by default, because I want to make certain projects so instead of trying to wait and find them, I create them, but I'm not really a writer.
You can't be a perfect environmentalist unless you're Ed Begley, Jr., whom I once saw on TV using a bicycle to power his toaster. He's amazing.
But I just wonder what it would be like to be able to go places without people recognizing me.
Safe drinking water isn't just something to worry about on your tropical vacation. U.S. tap water is ridden with arsenic, lead, and pharmaceutical drugs. In short: Get a filter.
No, I feel like my personality probably influenced the character, more than the character influenced me.
Yeah, I started when I was 6 years old. My brother and sister would get all of these presents at Christmas time from the cast and crew of their show and I was jealous. So I decided that I had to become an actor.
I like that kind of frantic schedule. It makes me feel like I have a purpose.
You want to keep the severity of our environmental problems in mind enough to keep yourself motivated but not enough to paralyze you into depression.
I feel like there is just as much violent programming in other countries and there is not the same incidence of factors. I think there are other factors contributing to violence in this country and not the media.
I do like to hang out in the corner and keep my eye on the party, or be outside in a smaller group.
I take my kids to the farmer's market – knowing I'm buying local and fresh makes the humiliation of the little choo-choo train ride worthwhile.
Especially when you play a character for so many years, the character ends up reflecting a lot of who you are and I think I've changed a lot since then, but that represented a lot of who I was as a teenager.
