- On her transformation in Cake: "A woman going physically unattractive is where you get recognition and some sort of respect. You read things like, 'Oh, finally, she's acting!' [It's] Quite sexist, to be honest, because men don't get that."
- About the complications around feminism: "[It's] Because people overcomplicate it. It's simply believing in equality between men and women. Pretty basic."
- On motherhood: "I don't like [the pressure] that people put on me, on women — that you've failed yourself as a female because you haven't procreated. I don't think it's fair. You may not have a child come out of your vagina, but that doesn't mean you aren't mothering — dogs, friends, friends' children. This continually is said about me: that I was so career-driven and focused on myself; that I don't want to be a mother, and how selfish that is. Even saying it gets me a little tight in my throat."
