I used to dream of becoming an actress. Then I had kids and, thus my dreams came true. Honest.
- My fans can be obsessive and tend to follow me everywhere, even into the bathroom. Which leads to...
- Privacy. Basically, I don't have it anymore.
- My kids are my publicists. When they're good, I look good. When they're bad, my image suffers.
- My kids are also little critics; a fickle bunch, either loving me or hating me. I have to be able to withstand bad reviews if I'm going to make it in this town.
- It's not easy. The greats just make it look that way.
- I have to be willing to play different roles. Sometimes I'm the leading lady and sometimes I'm the clown.
- Don't be fooled. Those glossy, pretty pictures are really staged and photoshopped.
- It's not all glamourous. Being on set is hard work and sometimes boring. For instance, I might have to scream convincingly 10 or 20 times before the director is finally happy with the scary fake spider scene and calls it a wrap.
- I've been in character so long, I tend to forget who I really am.
- I'm happy to win awards and attend galas, like the recent 2014 Muthrz Day Tee, but that's not why I do it. It's for the love of the craft.
