Highlights from the interview:
- On dancing in impossibly big stilettos: "I used to admire Beyoncé because she could dance in those high-heeled shoes. She could do stairs and everything! I thought, how does she do that?... I learnt how to walk in them and haven't looked back since."
- On what Nevis, her three year-old daughter, thinks of her glamorous mother: "We've developed quite a separation between work and home. She knows when I put the makeup on that it's time for work."
- On how becoming a mother changed her: "Overall, I felt like more of a woman and more in my body. That's another reason I'm so much more confident now. As a parent, you become more assertive."
- On role models: "Everything I am is due to the fact that I had strong female role models in my life. Obviously, my great grandmother is at the root of all that.... She was a toughie, that's for sure."
- On her home: "That's why I live in Toronto, which is a truly unique multicultural city. I want to raise Nevis in a culturally diverse environment and expose her to everything."

“Acting has taught me how to play roles and jump into a character. Some days, if I’m doing a lot of Tv interviews, I play different characters in each one.”
“The moment I gave birth I felt I could write the most beautiful poem in the world because I felt so connected to the world. All of a sudden, I knew the secret.”
