On what she learned from her mother: “She’s gorgeous, and she taught me that a real feminist doesn’t apologize for her beauty. You can be a sexy, beautiful woman and be the smartest person in the room.”

On her relationship with ex-husband: “The mark of a good marriage is partnership and continuing to feel inspired by your spouse. I had that with him. But the end is not necessarily the tragedy. Staying in a relationship that is no longer working is the tragedy. Living unhappily—that’s the tragedy.”

On growing up around celebs: “I remember Mick Jagger [talking] politics with my parents…At 13 I came to L.A. for a press junket, and it was this magical land of palm trees and George Clooney. But [then] I saw George talking to my dad about politics, and I thought what makes these people special is that they’re not just actors…I saw people being valued for their intelligence and their interests as opposed to their stardom. It instilled in us that stardom is meaningless.”

On lessons learned from marrying young: “Everyone said it to me—and I had to figure it out for myself—but you change so much. I’ve learned it’s important to spend time in a relationship with yourself and not being defined by your partner.”

On dating again: “I’m opening up my heart to the idea of dating. It’s funny—my friends would always come to me for romantic advice, [but] I know nothing, and things have changed since I was dating in high school! I’m really trying hard to spend this time working on myself.”

On relationships: “I wish I could play the field. But it’s so not me. I go 100 percent into everything. And I’m a really good girlfriend.”
