Where would you be without friends? The people to pick you up when you need lifting? We come from homes far from perfect, so you end up almost parent and sibling to your friends - your own chosen family. There's nothing like a really loyal, dependable, good friend. Nothing.
I love that feeling of being in love, the effect of having butterflies when you wake up in the morning. That is special.
I couldn't have found a better man than Brad. He still opens doors for me and brings me flowers. He's the sweetest goofball on the planet.
There are no regrets in life, just lessons.
I don't have a religion. I believe in a God. I don't know what it looks like but it's MY god. My own interpretation of the supernatural.
I love to read about what my love life is really like.
I feel sexy in my jeans and wearing my boyfriend's T-shirt.
True love brings up everything - you're allowing a mirror to be held up to you daily.
I always say don't make plans, make options.
The greater your capacity to love, the greater your capacity to feel the pain.
The best smell in the world is that man that you love.
Cancer affects all of us, whether you're a daughter, mother, sister, friend, coworker, doctor, patient.
You know, I've got wrinkles on my forehead and smile lines, but what's wrong with that? I love to smile.

What inspires you, what excites you when you wake up in the morning?
People who avoid the brick walls - all power to ya, but we all have to hit them sometimes in order to push through to the next level, to evolve.
I spent my first paycheck on a vintage Mercedes.
I think it's important to have closure in any relationship that ends - from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase.
One tradition I have with my friends is that when one of us gets married, we have a ton of fragrance oils and pretty bottles at the bachelorette party. Everyone puts a drop or two in a bottle for the bride and makes a wish, and the bride wears our creation on her wedding day.
My parents' divorce left me with a lot of sadness and pain and acting, and especially humour, was my way of dealing with all that.
You can undo a lot of things. If you're not happy, you can become happy. Happiness is a choice. That's the thing I really feel.
Look I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to. I don't starve myself in an extremist way. You're not taking away my coffee or my dairy or my glass of wine because I'd be devastated.

I was told to avoid the business all together because of the rejection. People would say to me, 'Don't you want to have a normal job and a normal family?' I guess that would be good advice for some people, but I wanted to act.
Life can be dramatic and funny all in the same day.
I don't get sent anything strange like underwear. I get sent cookies.
You're damned if you're too thin and you're damned if you're too heavy. According to the press I've been both. Its impossible to satisfy everyone and I suggest we stop trying.
I'm a bit of a clothes hoarder, admittedly. I try to weed out stuff. My girlfriends come over for cheese and wine and go shopping in my wardrobe. They especially love it when they get stuff with a tag still on.
Free love never works.
I went to the Rudolf Steiner School in New York, and you're not allowed to watch TV.
I was born in Sherman Oaks, California.
When someone follows you all the way to the shop and watches you buy toilet roll, you know your life has changed.
Everybody relates to having a dream.
I have a lot of amazing women, you know, women in my life who have been an example for me of what not to do.
We're all with Friends until Friends dies. If one of us goes, we all go. One of us wouldn't leave. It wouldn't be the show it is without each of us.
Here's where I luck out: I'm really computer illiterate.
When you accept a role in a pilot, you automatically sign up for five years. You think it's scary to walk down the aisle? Try signing a five-year contract for a show you may not want to be part of down the road.
Oh, it's not really gambling when you never lose.
'Friends' will always remain friends.
I'm not sitting dwelling about the past or stressing or fretting about something in the future.
Nobody thinks of themselves as sexy, really. Some days you go, 'Hey, I'm not going too bad today.' But if you try and be sexy, you'll never be sexy.
The fun stuff comes when someone is not so strict on sticking to the script. You're allowed the spontaneity, and great moments can happen.
My dad became a soap opera actor, and I was an extra in a skating rink scene on the soap. I didn't audition. It was nepotism all the way.
I think rage is so ugly.
I'm sprouting more than one wonderful grey hair.
You can't blame someone for not knowing what his or her job should be if you don't ask for it right off the bat.
I guess we'd be living in a boring, perfect world if everybody wished everybody else well.
I love acting, but being an actor for hire only serves so much, and then you want to fill your well up again and be charged by something else.
The women that inspire me are the ones who have careers and children; why would I want to limit myself? I've always wanted to have children, and I would never give up that experience for a career. I want to have it all.
I think a good relationship is about collaboration.
As I get older I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won't settle for.
Really try to follow what it is that you want to do and what your heart is telling you to do.
I was starting to buy into my own sort of stereotype in a way.
Well, honestly I feel like an ordinary woman.
I almost resent the whole fashion thing. Good God- never wearing the same thing twice and all of those things. It's a pain in the ass.
It's all about being comfortable, being easy and having you be able to wear something and not having it wear you. It's classic. Every time I've tried to be bold and crazy, I feel like a Japanese animated cartoon character.
When I think about a character, it does start with the shoes: What kind would she wear? How would she walk in them?
I support women, men, anybody who is in a place that's not their strongest and who is ready to push forward.

I actually feel I've been unbelievably lucky in love.
I'm enjoying simplifying things.
I've seen people go through divorces and stuff, crossroads that don't end well. Often.
Don't rely on men but don't shun them either.
I realised it was only me who was stopping myself from living my life.
I had an idea of what I thought was funny. It's kind of based on how I am.
I'm really happy. Really!
I don't feel my age. I feel young every day.
The thing I am attracted to is just good writing and stories that are based somewhat in reality.
A man divorcing would never be accused of choosing career over children.
I don't know why women feel an affinity with me.
Having experienced everything you don't want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down to what you actually do want.
I think when you're off the clock, you should be off the clock.
Do I have my days when I've thrown a little pity party for myself? Absolutely.
I'm not one aspect of the human experience - none of us is.
I was always reading those beauty magazines and wanting to become this unattainable thing.

As an adult, I can't blame my parents any more.
Art is so subjective, and people can react however they want.
There are many stages of grief.
I love clothes, but I don't know what to put on myself, let alone others. I have a lot of help getting dressed.
You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and think, Aren't we kind of the same age?
It's sad, something coming to an end. It cracks you open, in a way - cracks you open to feeling.
Most of us fall in love with someone's persona and spend the next three to five years discovering who that person really is. If you can stay connected through that process of raw vulnerability, I think you have a shot at the prize of knowing and accepting another human being for who and what they really are after years of highs and lows.
It gets so boring you know just to do the same thing over and over again.
I've never in my life said I didn't want to have children. I did and I do and I will!
I love being home. I have friends that come over.
I'm just so happy, and I'm grateful for my fans. I just hope I keep doing work that they love.
OK, in all seriousness, I would say I couldn't be in a relationship without equality, generosity, integrity, spirit, kindness and humor. And awesomeness.
I don't know if I ever really get mad in real life.
