On her "Nashville" character:
"We have an opportunity to show a woman who is self-made and successful and really trying to have it all, and the complexities and difficulties of it…We have the opportunity to show the sexiness and gorgeousness of a woman with experience and wisdom."
On adopting her son, Yoby:
"Me and Angelina and Sandra Bullock and Mary-Louise Parker just get together every weekend, drink rosé, and talk about kids! No, that is not the case. Not that I wouldn’t love to get together with all of them and discuss their experiences. But there is a community of people who have adopted children from Ethiopia, and that’s something I want to be a part of for sure. To me it’s really important for my son to have a strong sense of that background."
On being a single mother:
"I always knew I wanted a child, and I always assumed I’d be doing it with a man…Then my parents passed away within three years of each other. Right after that, a lightbulb went off in my head and I thought, ‘What am I waiting for?’ I wasn’t in a relationship at the time, but I thought, ‘This is something I want to do. I can do it.’"
