I'm not sad about any of my life. It's so unconventional. It doesn't look anything like I thought it would.
Edie Falco
Writers, actors, anybody working on an ensemble-type thing, there are going to be some creaks in the beginning. It seems like there's tremendous potential in just letting things sort of breathe a little bit. It's tremendously important.
Edie Falco
My friends started having children after college, while I was pursuing this crazy acting career and living hand to mouth. Plus, all my boyfriends were artists struggling to make a living. Having kids didn't make any sense - why would I take on more of a financial burden when I couldn't even afford a dog?
Edie Falco
Being a single mother was the right thing for me. But I have a tremendous amount of help from my friends. They're in love with my kids, and my kids are in love with them.
Edie Falco
There's a little good and bad in everyone. Everybody I've ever loved is very complicated.
Edie Falco
Coming home to my family afterward makes the work richer, easier and more fun.
Edie Falco
We're living in a time when parenting is not at all mirroring the way I was parented. For me, I just followed my parents around on their errands; when they were busy on the phone, I was quiet. It's a different kettle of fish these days: They run the house, and you listen to their music, and you go to their appointments.
Edie Falco
I'm a very ritualistic, routine-oriented person, and I discovered over the years that I love working Monday through Friday.
Edie Falco
I've watched those shows my whole life - being on one is like a dream. It's hard to balance that dream with the fact that this is the Edie I've known my whole life.
Edie Falco
I really am profoundly grateful just in general in my life. I've had an embarrassing amount of good fortune.
Edie Falco
The high-grossing films are not all that interesting to me, I have to say. It's not stuff I would want to be in. Yes, you would want the big paycheck, but that's never really been my concern.
Edie Falco
And hey-the psychiatrist in the show is Italian also. So people are going to focus on what they want to focus on. There's not much you can do about that.
Edie Falco
My kids have never seen me scream at anybody. They've never seen an argument. There's never been even a cold silence. And those are things that I grew up with because my parents did end up divorcing.
Edie Falco
Throughout my career I've played a lot of parts that might've been played by a man. They're human roles rather than specifically men or women. I've never been as hooked into that as a lot of women are, you know, like, 'There aren't enough roles for women.' There aren't necessarily a lot of good roles for anybody.
Edie Falco
I'm just not one of those people who thought having biological children was that important, to me it was more about wanting to raise a child.
Edie Falco
One of the ways I think I gain fodder for characters is by watching people.
Edie Falco
I have lots of friends and, like me, they're not married. So my kids have lots of godparents - men and women, gay and straight. My loft is always filled with people helping me out with them and loving them.
Edie Falco
Is it harder having kids and working? It definitely is, but the payoff is you get to go home to your kids, and it all balances out. And I know I'm a better mother when I'm engaged in something outside of the house.
Edie Falco
I've also learned to no longer feel guilty if I'm invited out and don't want to go. If I start to say to myself, 'What's wrong with you that you're staying in five nights in a row to watch 'Forensic Files' instead of going out with your friends' I remind myself that it's what I need to do for myself at that point.
Edie Falco
I wanted to act; that was my one goal. I wanted to devote all my time to acting and not waitressing or anything else.
Edie Falco
I have this dog named Marley, and it is a kind of love I had never known. I have a hard time believing Marley did not come from my body. I know that sounds insane, but I feel that connected to her. She made me realize I wanted to adopt children.
Edie Falco
I grew up kind of a tomboy and I used to fight with all the neighborhood boys.
