“But there is more to me than just a tabloid girl. This whole ‘poor lonely Jen’ thing, this idea that I’m so unlucky in love? I actually feel I’ve been unbelievably lucky in love. Just because at this stage my life doesn’t have the traditional framework to it — the husband and the two kids and the house in Connecticut — it’s mine. It’s my experience. And if you don’t like the way it looks, then stop looking at it! Because I feel good. I don’t feel like I’m supposed to be any further along or somewhere that I’m not. I’m right where I’m supposed to be.”

“I’m actually comfortable in goofdom. Not taking myself seriously is one of my favorite things to do, because I don’t — ever.”

“I don’t have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done and if they’re not checked, then I’ve failed some part of my feminism or my being a woman or my worth and my value as a woman. Because I haven’t birthed a child. I’ve birthed a lot of things and I feel like I’ve mothered many things. And I don’t feel that’s it’s fair to put that pressure on people.”
