When asked about going out with her girls, she says, “I don’t like going out that much. I’m kind of an old lady. After it’s 11, I’m like ‘Don’t these kids ever get tired?’ When I’m out, I think about my couch.”

As for that NYR of hers: “My New Year’s Resolution is to stand up for myself. It’s hard for me. Nobody wants to be disliked. You always want to be polite and be nice. I tried to find a balance in saying what I mean and still being nice. I can’t do it. I have this ‘okay’ attitude and everything. I end up allowing myself to get walked over and resenting it.”

Of course she couldn’t skate by without discussing the figure that got her crowned ‘Most Desirable’ female of the year: “I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life.”
