My first job now is as a mother, everything else is secondary. My kids understand that I am an actress, and they are always so surprised to hear my voice on a cartoon character, or see my face on a video box. If it ever gets to be too much though, the career and the kids, I will simply set the career aside.
It was a terrible blow that was dealt when I was fired from 'Saturday Night Live', but I have to say that a few doors opened right away. Movie roles started to roll in, and pretty soon, I was over it.

I can’t imagine being a single parent, or a single parent that doesn’t have a lot of money. That’s a big, huge impact on your life and your dynamic. I am the kind of person that needs support, my heart goes out to those who are struggling to be mothers.
I think us gals need to stay in and just change the way it works, so men aren’t being workaholics and avoiding life and relationships, and they can make films in a reasonable amount of time, so you can have a family and a life outside of work. And have more balanced, content-driven, enjoyable movies.
I think if you’re in this business, like any high-stakes business, the highs and lows can make you a manic-depressive person, if you weren’t that way to start with. ‘Cause it’s just so crazy on your psyche. A lot of it has to do with people thinking they’re greater than someone else.
