“When you’re in your 20s, you’re really a kid, and I think there`s this expectation that when you`re 30, you are going to really start to have a handle on your life. And then when I turned 40, I really freaked out. I remember going to some doctor and getting Botox. It was terrible; it was so embarrassing. I was like, `I`m such a cliche.` “
“I thought I had to redefine so many aspects of who I am. It wasn`t as scary as I thought, by the way, but going into it I think I had a particular set of unique circumstances.”
