On 10 Relationship With Husband Chris Martin:
“We are growing into very similar people. It’s cool, it’s good. It’s not always easy, though!”
On Having Another Baby
“There are some films that I want to do, and I love my business and I want to expand that a lot. We’ll sort of see. I mean, if I want to have another kid, I gotta kind of get on it. But then you see a baby and you smell a baby and you’re like, ‘Yep, I do.’ I don’t know. It’s a very big decision, so we’ll see. Anyway, I’m not doing it this month!”
On Plastic Surgery & Botox:
“I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I’m 50. I’ll try anything. Except I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!”
On Moving Back To California:
“Just to have my kids be in the sun every day—picking avocados, going for a swim, even for two years or something, and come back when they go to senior school.”
On being fearless: “I don’t hold on to fear as much as I used to, because I’ve learned a lot about genuinely not caring what strangers think about me. … It’s very liberating. It’s very empowering, and I’ve learned a lot of that from Jay — Shawn Carter — Z, because his approach to life is very internal. It’s a very good lesson to learn.”
“Not finding my voice earlier in life.”
