I sort of look at some peers of mine and I think, "No, you`ve got it all wrong!" I just want to tell them all to have babies and be happy and not get s*cked into that Hollywood thing.

Jack Black is incredibly hilarious. I think he`s really appealing, so sexy. When I watched the movie, I really thought he was sexy.

(On her 1997 break up with Brad Pitt): It really changed my life. When we split up, something changed, permanently, in me. My heart sort of broke that day, and it will never be the same.

Women were real box office stars in the `40s, more so than men. People loved to see women`s films. I think it was better then, except for the studio system.

I try to remember, as I hear about friends getting engaged, that it`s not about the ring. It`s a grave thing, getting married.

Sometimes when things you love get really commercial, you end up feeling betrayed by it.

It changed me more than anything else. You don`t want to get to that place where you`re the adult and you`re palpably in the next generation. And, this shoved me into that.

I just had a baby. I`m not going to work unless it`s something really special and meaningful, because I can`t imagine missing all that time with my daughter.

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.

It would be a lot easier on Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston now had they not talked to the press about each other and everything to begin with. I learned my lesson at 24.

There`s something that sort of weirds me out about actors who want to be rock stars, and the other way around too.

I spend a good portion of my dinner-party conversation defending America because no matter what the political agenda, it`s still a fantastic, amazing place.

I find the English amazing how they got over 7/7. There were no multiple memorials with people sobbing as they would have been in America. There, they are constantly scaring people but at the same time, people think nothing of going to see a therapist.

The simpler things are, the happier they are.

My life comes down to three moments: the death of my father, meeting my husband, and the birth of my daughter. Everything I did previous to that just doesn`t seem to add up to very much.

We feel it`s unacceptable to be fat, when it has nothing to do with who the person actually is.

My playground was the theatre. I`d sit and watch my mother pretend for a living. As a young girl, that`s pretty seductive.

I put on the fat suit and went outside and walked around. I was really nervous about being found out, but nobody would even make eye contact with me. It really upset me.

There are certain women in this business who have children and I just think, "You must never, never see them!" You can`t do movies back to back and see your child if they go to school.

I have a very highly developed sense of denial.

Because I was newly pregnant, I was sick as a dog, yet I knew all my lines from a year before.

I realised life is so short and precious, you should do things that make you feel inspired, that push you and teach you something. I`d rather not have a big house, a huge closet of clothes, diamonds and a private plane, and instead a body of work that I`m proud of.

When you`re so out there in the public eye, people are constantly criticizing every aspect about you.

(on daughter Apple`s accent) She says "Mummy" instead of "Mommy", I don`t mind that. I will if she starts saying "basil" and "pasta" the English way, as that really drives me nuts.

(On her father`s (Bruce Paltrow`s) struggle with throat cancer): It changed me more than anything else. You don`t want to get to that place where you`re the adult and you`re palpably in the next generation. And, this shoved me into that.

If we were living in ancient Rome or Greece, I would be considered sickly and unattractive. The times dictate that thin is better for some strange reason, which I think is foolish.

I`m very happy here (in London) and I really like the way the film industry works, everybody cares. I like that it doesn`t have this big capitalistic feeling. When you do something in L.A. you really feel the crew are punching the clock.

British people don`t seem to ask each other out on dates. If someone asked you out they`re really going out on a limb, whereas in America it happens all the time. Someone will come up to you and ask you for dinner and you`ll say, "Sure!" It`s no big deal and no weight should be attached to it. It`s only dinner, for God`s sake. Yet in Britain, mostly what happens seems to be that people meet at work. If there`s a little something there, then they hang out together and, all of a sudden, they`re boyfriend and girlfriend.

I moved to New York from California when I was 11, so initially I was seen as the California person for a while. I didn`t feel like I was popular, but I did feel confident.

I`ve had a very interesting career. I get to do amazing things and work with amazing people and travel and learn languages - things most people don`t get the opportunity to do.

I find "Sex and the City" (1998) irreverent and shocking. It`s one step beyond how girls really talk. I would do a cameo on that show in a flash.

The adrenaline of a live performance is unlike anything in film or theater. I can see why it`s so addictive.

Europeans are incredibly negative about America at the moment. I think they lose sight of the fact that the country`s a very divided place right now.

The Jewish part of me is superstitious.

Our marriage is between us. If we decide to continue being together or not, it`s our business.

(in Style magazine, 9/06, on Madonna) She has evolved with so much wisdom and grace that I would say my favorite Madonna is today`s Madonna. She`s a beautiful product of all her explorations and incarnations.

Our marriage is between us. If we decide to continue being together or not, it`s our business.

It really changed my life. When we split up, something changed, permanently, in me. My heart sort of broke that day, and it will never be the same.

(on being pregnant while filming Proof (2005)) It was very, very difficult. I was trying not to barf. I felt terrible.

I`m an artist, and the need to get inside myself and be creative and be other people is a part of who I am. I don`t imagine I`ll abandon that completely.

Even actresses that you really admire, like Reese Witherspoon, you think, another romantic comedy? You know. You see her in something like Walk the Line (2005) and think, "God, you`re so great!" And then you think, "Why is she doing these stupid romantic comedies?" But of course, it`s for money and status. I just think, "Wouldn`t it be great if all of those movies people went to see were about real women?"

I was having such a hard time when I made Sylvia. I gave everything I had for that role. It`s one or two or three things I`m most proud of in terms of my work. But it was very dark.

I love the English way, which is not as capitalistic as it is in America. People don`t talk about work and money. They talk about interesting things at dinner parties. I like living here because I don`t tap into the bad side of American psychology, which is "I`m not achieving enough, I`m not making enough, I`m not at the top of the pile!"

I really like where Tony Robbins says that we`re all hypnotized to see beauty this one specific way, and it`s true.

It`s a waste of time for people to say things they think other people want to hear, or try and come off in a certain way. I try to be as honest as I can.

As I absorbed life here and understood it better, I just completely fell in love with England.

I don`t know who decided that skinny was more appealing than not skinny. It seems arbitrary.

I understand that if you set out to be a celebrity, then you asked for it, but all I wanted to be was an actor.

My dad always said he couldn`t remember a time when I did not want to act.

I`m glad that some day my children will be able to see my father and hear his voice, get a sense of who he was. One of the things that disturbs me the most about the fact that he`s dead, is that I feel like a statistic. I sort of feel like one of those people who was unfortunate and lost their father when they were 30, and life goes on. But he was so unique and so incredible, I don`t like to think about it in those terms.
