Quotes

#Quote
1Even on my worst days, the instant softening and loving that my son gives me without ever knowing he's doing it, without any premeditation or self-consciousness, is something I could never have imagined, yet always dreamed of.
2My twin sister, my cousin, and I used to write and perform plays for my family. We raided the closets for costumes and fought over parts. I'm sure I was the bossiest one.
3Now that I have a 16-month-old son, my weekend ritual has changed - but it's better than ever. We get up early and go for a walk on one of the hiking trails near my home in Los Angeles, then meet up with friends at a diner. There's nothing better than sipping coffee, eating scrambled eggs, and taking three hours to do it.
4We're trying to tell a very full story of Nashville (2012)' and these characters in Nashville, and I'm really hopeful that we're going to be able to do something as innovative as American Horror Story (2011) and Friday Night Lights (2006). And I think so far, we're on the right path for that.
5I was born in Boston, but then I went down to Virginia. We spent a little time in Maryland, and then were in Virginia by the time I was seven. What struck me the most was that my mother thought that she had gone to the middle of nowhere, and we would still drive four hours for her to get her hair cut in Washington, D.C.
6I would say country is the one type of music I've spent the least amount of time with in my life. I grew up in Virginia, where there was a lot of it, but I was more interested in rock and roll. Southern rock.
7I'm in an environment where I have a lot of information about how to stay healthy and live a good life. I love vegan and raw food, I love to exercise. If I weren't in this business, I think I would be aging differently.
8In terms of American Horror Story (2011) and Nashville (2012), what attracted me to those, and Friday Night Lights (2006), for that matter, is that they felt like something innovative and something that we hadn't seen before. As an actor, that's exciting.
9In the past I'd always felt like 'the girl' in the show or the movie. On 'Friday Night Lights' there were a bunch of girls, and I was the woman. Initially there was a little struggle with my identity around that. But now there's a sense of ease.
10I'm obsessed with Thelma & Louise (1991), and therefore obsessed with Callie Khouri, who wrote that movie.
11My whole background is theater, and theater is to some degree presentational.
12A definite highlight was doing The Brothers McMullen (1995). Shooting that movie was such a joy - and then we wound up winning the Sundance Film Festival. That big-break moment is visceral. It happens once in a decade, maybe once in a lifetime.
13Divorce is hard. I was about 29 when my husband and I split up. I think we probably fared better than most, because we were young and didn't have kids - but divorce is hard.
14I think the most important thing about the Emmys stuff is just to enjoy it. It can get really stressful in weird ways, and I have definitely experienced that. This year, I really just want to have it be a fun celebration!
15There are so many women out there who are single moms, really not by choice, and doing it and making it work every day. I think it's becoming much more a part of our culture and I hope that it will become more accepted and that those women are going to be more and more appreciated, respected and supported.
16There's something about Southern women that is so unique yet so universal. Strong southern women are allowed to be soft and feminine and have a sense of humor. But what I love about Southern women in particular is their universality.
17For my birthday this year, my girlfriends - who knew I'd just inherited my dad's turntable - gave me a carton of albums like "Blue Kentucky Girl", by Emmylou Harris, and "Off the Wall", by Michael Jackson. It's all stuff we grew up with. I mean, you can't have a music collection without Prince's "Purple Rain" - it just can't be done!
18I grew up singing. My mother was a music teacher.
19I think that sense of humor is important in marriage. A sense of humor gets people through marriage.
