Here’s the time stamp of the interview.
Read excerpts below.
On facing temptations: You mean like ‘This dude is not bad?’, yes I have. I am human. But you have to think of the odds…you’re like ‘What do you stand to lose?’ I think of the things I really would lose and I just feel it’s not worth it.
On making her marriage work while in the movie industry: For me I will say, first and foremost I think my faith has been very good and has been very helpful in my relationship because my husband and I have the same belief system. So we understand that we’re human. I know he can’t tell me he hasn’t seen girls that he likes. I’m not the most beautiful – even if I’m the most beautiful person in the world – you will still see one or two persons in life that would just tickle your fancy. It’s human, it’s a human thing.
On not getting enough international movie roles: I have gotten a few calls and it’s been a very difficult decision to make in my career. I keep hearing this all the time and it’s almost like the elephant in the room. So twice I’ve had the opportunity to relocate and I’ll say the reason why I haven’t relocated is because it would break my family. My husband doesn’t want to relocate; he doesn’t want to live abroad. He doesn’t like to live abroad. It will be very difficult for him to get a good job abroad because there are so many good pilots in America. So it would mean me moving and him staying here and that was a very big reason.
On her endorsements: I got a lot of endorsements last year. Like Knorr. My daughter actually made 2.4 million on that endorsement.
