 To be honest, I think my son is a bit young for me to be away. I really feel like during the first five years of a child’s life it’s really important to be there as much as you can. Now my children are self-sufficient. They really have an inner life and they know what they want and they know who they are. I think that it’s OK to work.

 I just feel lucky that I don’t have to do every day. When I’m gone, I’m really gone. When I’m home, I’m really home. That’s the way it works in our house.

 It was the most pivotal moment of my life. And it was terrible. When people ask me, ‘How do you do a scene like that where you cry all day?’ it’s like, ‘I have so much pain over the loss of that man.’ Like I could cry for 100 years. It’s really hard for me knowing that my kids will never know him. It’s really hard for me to realize that if he were to come back to life, he wouldn’t know where I lived, he wouldn’t know my phone number, he wouldn’t know my kids, he wouldn’t know my husband. He wouldn’t know my life. It’s still such a hard thing to get my head around, but it’s my reality.

 I felt like a zombie. I couldn’t access my heart. I couldn’t access my emotions. I couldn’t connect. It was terrible, it was the exact opposite of what had happened when Apple was born. With her, I was on cloud nine. I couldn’t believe it wasn’t the same. I just thought it meant I was a terrible mother and a terrible person.

 About four months into it, Chris came to me and said, ‘Something’s wrong. Something’s wrong,’. I kept saying, ‘No, no, I’m fine.’ But Chris identified it, and that sort of burst the bubble. I thought postpartum depression meant you were sobbing every single day and incapable of looking after a child. But there are different shades of it and depths of it, which is why I think it’s so important for women to talk about it. It was a trying time. I felt like a failure.

 I went to a great bar and I had a pint of Guinness. That’s my new ritual. I’m feeling good!

 I am never away from my children for longer than five days, a week at the most. I do one film a year, and then I do the rest of my stuff at home. It is a balance. Sometimes I have to not do something that sounds really appealing, but it just doesn’t work for my family. You can’t have it all.

 When I was just starting out, someone suggested that we finish a meeting in the bedroom, I left. I was pretty shocked. I could see how someone who didn’t know better might worry, ‘My career will be ruined if I don’t give this guy a b**w j*b!’

 There are a lot of roles that are OK, but there’s little that’s really good, especially for someone my age. Sometimes you find out that something you really liked is going to someone 10 years younger. I find it heartening that Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock have been able to find and create amazing projects.

 On some nights, once the kids are asleep and I’m in for the evening, one of my favorite pastimes it to sit down with my laptop and a nice glass of wine. I read the news and do the occasional guilty shop on Net-a- Porter or Luis Via Roma.
