“I really lucked out with him. He’s deeply lovely and special.” talking about her husband.
“The hotel concierge is not telling me where to get a facial, Christy Turlington is. Doesn’t everyone want to know that? I would want to know if you went to Mario Batali’s house what he made you for dinner and could I have the recipe. So why not?” On doing her GOOP website.
“If you saw me naked compared to what I looked like when I did Iron Man 2, when I was exercising every day - I’ll get it back together, but I’ve never eaten so much fried food and white flour in my life, ever. Oh, God”.
