Everyday, I tell my husband, 'Maybe we should cash in. I'll make handmade lotion and you can write music and sell it on the Internet.'
I have zero problems when people say, 'God, you look like your mother.' I go, 'Well, great! Thanks!'
I'm Jewish and this was the first time I experienced real anti-Semitism. Paris was scary...there were synagogues bombed and there was anti-Semitic graffiti all over the place. I was very angry. This is something I am passionate about.
I'm a hippie at heart. I wear the clothes, and they're the best. And the music is incredible, too.

The sweetest moment was when the kids were done and when we finished with the kids. It was just so emotional. And I looked at Abby [Breslin, who plays five-year-old Sarah] and she was crying.

And it was just... it really made the whole experience that much more special; to know that those kids took something from that experience.
