On the twins who play her character’s daughter Zola: “Those babies are amazing. They’re so cute and they’re really small. You know they’re only like a little over a year, but they seem to know when the camera is on them. I didn’t see it but I think it [already] aired…When we were trying to get her to walk, and they’re really on the verge of walking, and just when the camera was on her, she just stood up and walked across the room! It was really a real moment and so it really has been fun. They’re great babies.”
On not having Stella meet the babies: “No, I feel really bad. I really feel like I’m cheating on Stella, I feel terrible. They’re adorable, but I really do feel guilty.”
On juggling work with being a mom to Stella: “It is challenging. You know, I have my days where I feel really guilty that I’ve been here every day if I have to work a lot. But the truth is I’m in a very blessed situation, I am so lucky. First of all, I am so lucky to live in a country where a girl like me can make this kind of living, achieve her dreams and reach her goals. And I don’t think anywhere else in the world can girls have the freedom that we do here to have these amazing careers and be mothers.”
