I don’t know if it’s about growing up as Julia Roberts’ niece or if it’s because I’ve been doing this since I was so young that people see me as younger”), dealing with endometriosis (“I started opening up to other women, and all of a sudden, there was a new world of conversation about endometriosis, infertility, miscarriages, fear of having kids. I was so grateful to find out I was not alone in this. I hadn’t done anything ‘wrong’ after all”) and expecting during a pandemic (“Long story short: I am hungry and tired. Food and sleep do not abide by the normal laws when you’re pregnant. But I’m healthy, which is the thing I’m most grateful for”).

Yes, definitely…The fact of the matter is that my two horrendous experiences with directors were male directors…And on both of my bad experiences, the movies were 95 percent men and I was the only woman in the movie.”
