On her divorce: "I had grown up with Tao; we had just drifted. I felt I had something to prove. If you fall off a horse, you get back up. I am not a quitter. I hung on for as long as possible, until it was more hurtful to stay... I'm so grateful for the pain and the heartbreak. It gave me the courage to leave and brought me to the great love of my life."
On meeting Jason Sudeikis: "I was just learning to be by myself. We were both seeing people but were single. He seemed to really see me, see through the bullshit. He said very few words and couldn't keep eye contact. He was so handsome, and he could dance.
"I thought, 'He won't be interested in me; I'm not a contender.' He was so cool, so funny—I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. He's a brilliant actor with a brain like lightning... I felt like fresh meat at the market... I thought, 'I'm not beautiful enough or his type.' I couldn't wait to sit down and hear him talk. On our first date, in New York City, we closed the restaurant down at 2 a.m.! He didn't kiss me, and I was madly in love. I was overwhelmed."
