“I do like acting, but it is just something that I do on the side, being rich and famous is not a priority for me. I have my husband, my kids, my parents, my brothers and sisters, my home and enough money. I don't need to be this rich and famous millionaire actress, I am quite happy with what I have and I can't think of anything that might be lacking from my life”
“When I'm around actresses who've put their careers at the top of their priorities, we don't have much in common”
“I'm not rich or famous, and it doesn't bother me”
