Movie stars have more privacy:
"I donít know whatís going on at Reese Witherspoonís house right now, or what Gwyneth Paltrowís doing or what Jennifer Aniston is really like. Thatís their privacy Ė they get to play other people. Other than that, you donít get to come in. I think thatís pretty cool. But for me, the [privacy] ship has sailed."
Being the boss lady:
"Everyone wants to work for me. I am very, very difficult to work for. Iím not abusive, Iím not a diva, I donít need any special kind of water. I am just intense and the job is very intense."
What role models?
"Iíve never compared myself to anyone else, Iíve never compared my ideas to anyone elseís. If itís meant to be then it will work, because I canít be anyone but me."
Oh, the pressure:
"Everybody thinks I sold my company and I should be just lying back on a yacht. Yes, things are good for the moment and I do have financial security. But itís expensive to run a business. The bigger it gets itís like a beast and the pressure is huge."
Getting from here to there:
"Itís not just me. We all moved out to L.A. for the summer. Everyone had to get a car and learn to drive. Iím in a whole crew now, which is crazy, because Iíve always been such a loner."
