“I try not to be desperate at all with anything with the kids. Having four of them you see how little control you have. When I had my first [with ex-wife Uma Thurman], I thought my parenting was so important but when you have four of them you realize human beings are so completely themselves, they are so unique unto themselves, that it doesn’t have that much to do with you. I mean obviously you want to create a situation where they’re healthy and have a good education. But apart from that you don’t have any control really about whether they’re literary or whether they’re interested in sports.” – papa Ethan on raising four children.
“I love and adore being a mother. It’s the greatest gift I’ve ever been given. Having children flips the game from being about you to about what you can create in a home and what your responsibilities are. I’ve thought about quitting acting, but I love what I do so much – it’s the big conundrum of my life. So I’m fighting to keep my foot in the business, be creative and stimulated, and still take care of my children.” – Uma on motherhood.
“It’s hard, but I think it’s harder for dads who put their kids to bed at night and then see them for a couple hours on a Saturday. I sometimes go for months unemployed which is nice.” – Ethan on balancing acting and raising his kids with his ex.
