ON GOING BACK TO WORK My manager kept calling me about this project. I said, 'Don't send it, I'm not going to do it.' But after I read the script I got a good feeling. Then I thought, "I can't do this. What about the kids?" Kevin said, "I'll stay home with them. You should go for it." I was really grateful for that because it meant him not taking a job for 4½ months.
ON KEVIN'S SUPPORTING ROLE We read each other's work and talk about why we like it and why we don't. I sit down with him and say, "There's something wrong with this scene. How can we make it better?" He'll give me ideas.
ON PLAYING A T0UGH COP We live in a male-dominated world. I can remember being 16 on a soap opera and the director called me "honey," and I turned and said, "Don't call me 'honey.'" He was like, "Whoa." But he never called me honey again.
