Quotes:

“She’s dying to see it. She’s very excited. [Director Sam Raimi] really welcomed her on set and he made a very kid-friendly space. She witnessed so much of it being made so she’s really excited to see it come together.” – mama Michelle on her daughter’s enthusiasm over seeing her mother’s movie Oz The Great and Powerful.

“What situations optimize my parenting? Which really is the most important thing in my world. That’s the question that I’m asking. How do I live my life and work in a way that makes me the best parent I can be? I think it’s the ultimate creative act. If this doesn’t turn out well then there is no success or awards in the world that can make up for it. So I’m always wondering what that balance is, and where it is.” – Michelle, musing about motherhood.

“I’m falling more and more in love with [Matilda], and I think she deserves the bulk of my attention. We’re lucky. I can work. She can go to a good school. There’s a lot there for her. And she can know her dad in so many ways, and so many of his friends who will be able to tell her so many stories. His friends, his family—they were a big part of his life, and they will be a big part of her life.” – Michelle, on her beautiful daughter.

    Michelle seems so focussed and present as a mother, which are such beautiful and important things to be. She seems to be doing an amazing job of raising Matilda, and I think the fact that they’re rarely seen in the media is a further testament to that. Happy birthday sweet girl!

    She’s starting to look like michelle. Michelle uses her in the media more than need be. Especially when it comes to promoting movies.
