never in my life
said I didn't want to have children.
I did and I do and I will!
never give up that experience
for a career.
I want to have it all.
a lot of accumulated joy and tension and
all kinds of emotions
just pouring out of all us. We've all been
preparing for this day and we all knew that
one day we would just have to move on with
even though we all love
and love working
together. But it's still an incredibly emotional
especially for me with a lot of journalists
asking me how it feels about FRIENDS coming
to an end. It's started
to make me think
very deeply about what it's all meant to
me and that's made me ever more emotional!
usually has about a shelf life
of ten years before people
get sick of seeing you. It's a good
thing to have a job
to fall back on and I really do enjoy
also realise power
is fleeting, it doesn't last forever in
so I want to make the most of it. I want
to make the kinds of pictures
that interest me, it's as simple as that.
I've never done work for money
ever. If your choices are based on grosses
and the film doesn't do well, what does
that mean? It leaves you with nothing.
am just at that stage of wondering where
I go from here. I came into this business
almost by accident, but now it has become
as a bit of fun,
something to do other than be a model,
has taken on a different
curve. I have been forced to ask where that
curve is going to end up.
are capable of doing so many things these
days, physically, emotionally,
There are so many things that women have
evolved into and I feel really proud about
where women are right now. I think
we're just sort of holding up a mirror to
them, so, I feel
about that aspect of it, as far as encouraging
girls to know that that are coming up, seeing
that hey, that's possible.
been in the business
since I was 16, so Ive had a 14-year
Ive always had acting
my blood. Doing this, whatever it is,
was something I was drawn to since my earliest
memories. Ironically, I lived
but never understood
that all it took was getting an agent and
I think its a real danger, as an actor,
when you try to make some statement through
about what the business
should be doing or ultimately what your
image should be or how you want to be perceived.
I look at every project that comes along
and say, Is this something I can sink
my teeth into and can do a good
on? Thats really how I choose
in the beginning, it was really tough.
Coming from Cincinnati, Ohio, I was just
who had a dream,
which was to go to Los
Angeles, have a career
and to be able to support
To have a dream like that and, you know,
you're not ready for what's coming ahead.
I think that's just a part of being famous,
and something you learn
I have a passion
for the play. My father
was a chess teacher,
and I learned
the play of him as a small child.
Occasionally I made another career;
but now I have again the possibility of
maintaining the passion of my early youth

which I do not have nevertheless now when
a correct career
to regard to be able.
I was always able to laugh
a lot at the industry - to be detached from
it, even if some of the other models
weren't. Jeez - it's hardly rocket science,
is it? It's not as if you can get to be
a better model..... .you can either get

cried a lot this year, both in happiness
I cried with happiness over the exciting

In a divorce, no matter the relationship,
it's still the death
of something. And you have to mourn it.
You have to go through it, or else it's
