On maintaining her "normal" body: "Having a baby takes so much from you. It's the most glorious thing you'll ever do, but the aftermath is not so glorious! So now I'm having to exercise, eat a little bit differently, take a lot more vitamins."
On her "normal" diet: "I like Doritos. I'm usually watching The Biggest Loser eating Doritos."
On her "average" wardrobe: "I'm not the girl for superhigh fashion because I don't have the right body. When I want to get dressed up, I'm a Roberto Cavalli girl. Also, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Calvin Klein ..."
On her above-average love life: "I have a 33-year-old man. That'll keep your mojo mojo-in'." She also says the sexiest wardrobe is a tank top and pumps. "Any pumps! You just need length to your legs."
On being discriminated against, despite her beauty: "I had a rough time. I was accused of stuffing the ballot box for my high school prom-queen election because they couldn't believe the only black girl in the school won."
On the value of her career vs. family: "I used to work a lot because I had nothing better to do. What I've learned, especially by having a baby, is that you can't bring that stuff home anymore. For example, I was alone filming Monster's Ball. I was married to someone else, and he wasn't really around much. Thank God that was only a 20-day shoot."
On why she's a trustworthy girl's girl: "I think there's a certain level of trust that I have with women. I've always been honest, even when I haven't had good times in my life or my movie bombed or I've had great success. I've owned up to all of it. I've said, Hey, this is who I am; take me or leave me. I'm pretty simple and pretty natural. I'm not one of these people who wear a face full of makeup so I look like I have on a mask. What you see is what you get.
