Motherhood is the only thing in my life that I've really known for sure is something I wanted to do.
Married people are the enemy, they either pity you or they envy you. Marriage is something that can take you off your path.
I find the baby thing very, very easy. It's a no-brainer.
I'm fairly out of the loop when it comes to pop culture.
"Sex and the City" (1998) has big fantasy elements, we're not trying to be role models. We look great so much of the time - we never have on the same outfit twice. But, frankly, most of my single friends complain endlessly that there are no men out there - so the idea that there's some fabulous guy round every corner is fantastical. It's a comedy! Who would take a social satire literally? Did anyone take "Charlie's Angels" (1976) literally?".
My private life is private. But at the same time, I have nothing to hide. So what I will say is that I am very happy. [on being asked by The New York Daily News about her relationship with Christine Marinoni in September 2004]
"I gotta feel like Eleanor Roosevelt was about as anti-Miranda as you can get. I guess I don't want to do things that strike me as very Miranda".
I'm a very big public school advocate. I try to bring public awareness to increase funding. My kids go to public school. I grew up here [in New York], went to public school, got a great education. It wasn't a tough decision.
I never felt like there was an unconscious part of me around that woke up or that came out of the closet; there wasn't a struggle, there wasn't an attempt to suppress. I met this woman, I fell in love with her, and I'm a public figure.
