We can find relationships that can serve us and that are good for us,” she explained. “We don’t have to stay in something if it’s not the right relationship. If something doesn’t work you don’t stay there and I think Carly knows that for herself.
“She leaves the relationship as soon as she finds out he’s married, she doesn’t try to get him to explain to her why he did it or say that he was going to leave his wife [Leslie Mann] for her.
“She just really owned it and said I have to get out of here and says the same thing to her [Leslie’s character] – you can’t change this person.”
“She is self-possessed and she knows what’s good for her,” Cameron added. “I think it’s important that that’s reflected.”
Neither does she have a fixed opinion on motherhood. “I’ve never said never to anything in life. If I wanted kids, at any point in life, I would have them. But I’m certain that if at any point I wanted a child, that child would find its way into my life, whether through adoption, or through being in a relationship with somebody who has a child. I can’t see the future, but one thing I do know is that I’m not childless. I have a ton of children in my life. I can have a kid any second, if I want. All my friends would be like, ‘Sure, come and get them,’” she says with a laugh.
“I also, by the way, have a lot of girl friends who don’t have children. It’s not like I’m the spinster who didn’t have a child. I just didn’t do that in life, and I’m OK with that. I know the choices I made. I know why I made them. I’m very much a person who lives in the moment. When you come from where I do, there are so many ways my life could have gone.”
Commenting about a different subject on the same article:
She DOES look 41. She is a beautiful, fit, very well conserved, athletic and gorgeous 41 year old woman. Who looks 41. She does not look like a women in her 30s at all. Botox doesn’t cover it, neither does all the plastic surgery in the world. I absolutely hate the “I don’t look like my age” cr*p. Makes me mentally slap people in their faces. Yes, there are a few women who do look a little younger, but 99% of those who say that are lacking a mirror at home. What is the problem of looking their own age? Why hide it? Why not embrace their age and feel good about it? Why society values young and makes people try to push it so hard?
Other than that, I love her and I really admire her personality.
I’m told that I look younger than I am every time I mention my age, and I have always had that, and I’m in my twenties still so no reason for people to be lying to me…some people just look young. But it occurred to me that maybe people say 40-something actresses “don’t look their age” because they’re attractive and it’s hard for people to imagine that a 40 year-old can be pretty. But just like some men can look 40 or 50 and still look good, there are some women (usually celebrities, I’m sure) who look their age yet still look good…because they stay in very good shape.
