on why she’s happy with herself
“i love the fact that i think i’m the type of girl who can hang with the poorest of the poor and the richest of the rich and still fit in. it’s probably one of my characteristics that i’m most proud of.”

her thoughts during the sojourn to northern india after her separation to husband, chad lowe
“i just sat with myself and thought, ‘what do i need right now? what do i need to do for myself.’ it was a time in my life where i felt i had so much…what’s the word? so many eyes were upon me. and that’s so unhealthy, for so many reasons.”

on divorce and moving on
“i just thought, ‘i’ve really got to get out and get back into the world and back into what’s important in life.’ no scrutiny, no ‘what am i wearing through this.'”

on children
“since i was 7 i’ve thought i’m going to have kids someday. so definitely, definitely.”

on her experience rescuing pets after 9/11
“surreal. people couldn’t get back to their apartments, so we’d go in and get their animals out. it was amazing. they were grasping at any sense of the things they loved and reminded you of what was important in life. it was like, ‘my animal!'”

driving cross-country with her best friend, sabrina ward harrison, who ran interference when folks would realize a movie star was in their midst
“they’d ask me, ‘is that hilary?’ and i’d be like, ‘no, no it’s not.'”
