Speaking at Variety’s Path to Parity Summit, the actress revealed that her husband was the one who empowered her most when she started her own production company.
“I’ve worked with so many incredible producers and I worked with so many not incredible producers that I realised that production was so dependent on that, that I wanted to fix it from the ground up,” she said.
“I didn’t realise that that’s now how you get stuff done until I met my husband, who empowered me more than anybody else because he was like, ‘Get on the phone. When they’re negotiating, get on the phone and start negotiating yourself.’ And I was like, ‘No! That’s what other people do.’ And he was like, ‘Learn, learn.’”
The Bad Moms actress also spoke about raising their two kids, Wyatt, 3, and Dimitri, 16 months.
“The one thing that I learned — and I have a boy and a girl — is this constant of, like, ‘OH, they’re just a boy. Oh, that’s just a boy thing. Boys do that.’ No, they don’t. They don’t have to punch. They don’t have to pull hair. They don’t have to tease because they’re a boy. Like, that’s not a constant. We don’t have to make it a constant.”
