  • I feel more comfortable in my own skin now than I ever have...I think there's something about loving Kai [her son] so much, in a way that I've never loved anyone, including myself. Also, I used to spend a lot of time alone, but he's this incredibly social kind of guy, so all of a sudden I'm always having people in and out of my house. It's changed the way I feel as a citizen of the world. And it's really important to me to feel good about what I'm working on, to justify the number of hours I'd have to be away from him.
    -- Jennifer Connelly

  • It [motherhood] has changed absolutely everything. I mean, it's changed my life.

I found myself questioning absolutely everything: how I spend my time, how I speak, what kind of projects I work on, how I look at the world.
