On Whether Being Mrs. Tom Cruise Helped Her in the Industry: "Things are not handed to anyone. If anything, you work a little bit harder when you're in such visible circumstances."

On Being in Her 30s: "I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier. I think in my twenties - it's like you're trying too hard to figure everything out...I'm starting to come into my own. It's like a new phase."
