Kate: (On her appearance in the film Whiteout) I play a federal marshal chasing a fugitive in the Antarctic and I get horribly injured and disfigured. If you think I look bad in prison in Nothing But the Truth, wait until you see me in this one! I'm always doing movies where I'm getting beaten up, thrown down stairs, hit with blunt objects and even set on fire. I pulled off the scenes with just a few bumps and bruises.
Kate: (revealing she hasn't passed her driving test after failing repeatedly for the past 18 years) I'm looking forward to knowing how to drive because I get those anxiety dreams where I'm suddenly in control of a car on the freeway. I'm assuming those will go once I know how to drive. I drove a golf cart on holiday and did quite admirably with that. That's a start.
Kate: (on being made up to look "old and haggard" for Nothing But the Truth) They put eye bags and stuff like that on, but it's embarrassing. I did look like s**t. I had some eye bags and slightly yellowy skin put on my make up for the prison scenes. But by the end of the movie I think I had it naturally!
Kate: Now my typical daily diet is eggs or oatmeal for breakfast, a chicken or vegetable wrap for lunch, then fish and vegetables for dinner.
Kate: I can't tell you how many times I've gone to present at the Golden Globes, come home, whipped the dress off and read to my daughter wearing gazillion-dollar earrings. That's how it goes in my house, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Kate: (confessing she is obsessed with breasts) I'm so fascinated by breasts because my mother didn't have them either. If I had them, I'd run up and down flights of stairs!
Kate: (revealing her daughter plays 'spot who's had Botox') My daughter will point to a woman and say, 'Look! That woman's had too much Botox.' She spots them because they all look a bit like Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter.
Kate: I'm very blessed to have a husband who appreciates me. Women feel sexy from feeling attractive and desired. Men feel sexy from having sex. If you can strike a balance where the man is having sex a lot and the woman is feeling desired enough to have sex, then you've figured out the secret to a marriage that's alive.
Kate: I have a four-year-old who's just starting to get worried about monsters, but she knows that mummy kicks monster a**, so she's fine.
Kate: There's such a pressure on women that we put on ourselves and everyone else puts on us to look unrealistic and everything, but you just can't compare yourself to people in magazines.
Kate: If I get a script that's set in the jungle it goes to the bottom of the pile because I don't think the playgrounds are going to be very good there! I'm really aware of how lucky I am but I have the kind of job where I can bring my child to work.
Kate: It still amazes me that people actually watching me with a gun didn't just burst out laughing. I can't even play ping-pong, but it turns out I'm good with weapons. I've got enormous hands, like a transsexual, and that's probably why.
Kate: I'm the worst wife in the cooking department. I always thought you can't be good at food and sex, but you can always order the food in. I'd rather he didn't order in the sex.
Kate: People should realize women aren't just whores or virgins, I want to see women who are real human beings.
Kate: No one is more enslaved than a slave who doesn't think they're enslaved.
Kate: In this business, where the opportunity to think everything is about you is there every day, now I really know that it isn't all about me.
Kate: (on losing her actor father) It's a very difficult thing losing a parent, but I think there's an added complication for me, because he was so well-loved and he had this very open charm that made people feel they had a personal relationship with him.
Kate: (admitting she is not good in the kitchen) I always thought you can't be good at food and sex (but) I would rather he didn't order in the sex!
Kate: I am going to make sure people don't ask them [her children], "Are you going to be an actor?" My mother said I could be anything I wanted except a policeman.
