"I think that, being a mother, you would do anything for your children. Their pain is your pain; if they're in pain, you feel their pain."
"I'm no way one of those comedians who want to do drama. I really do love comedies. I hope to go back to it."
"When I see a mom embarrassed because her kid is having a temper tantrum, I'm like, 'Please! Do you think I've never gone through that?' Women tend to be too hard on themselves."
