In an interview with E! News in March, the actress explained why she has a "rule about one movie a year," explaining: "I think it's different when you have an office job … When you're shooting a movie, they're like, 'We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,' and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it's not like being on set."

The mom to daughter Apple, 9, and son Moses, 7, ended her rant with a series of questions like, "Why do we feel so entitled to opine, often so negatively, on the choices of other women?" and signed off with a mere: "To every single mother out there, have a wonderful Mother's Day."
