I feel like the luckiest child in the world because I got to grow up in Ireland. In summer is when you really grow up. During the year, I would go back to the States, and all year long really couldn’t wait to get back to Ardmore. I love the landscape, the cliff walks, the smell, the freezing cold water, the music. Do I sound like some soppy romantic? I even love the food. People always laugh at me when I say that. People in Ardmore would say, “Oh isn’t living in America cool — you live in a big city, you get to be close to all these things we only see on TV”, but I found Ireland much more inspiring as a kid, much more fun, and the people had such an amazing effect on me, and I credit a lot of my growth as a child and a lot of my happiness with the people I was surrounded by in Ireland.

[on fiancé Jason Sudeikis] I thought, “He won’t be interested in me. I’m not a contender.” He was so cool, so funny – I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. He’s a brilliant actor with a brain like lightning. I thought, “I’m not beautiful enough or his type.” He seemed to really see me, see through the bullshit. He said very few words and couldn’t keep eye contact. He was so handsome, and he could dance.

[on ex-husband writer Tao Ruspoli] I had grown up with Tao; we had just drifted. I felt I had something to prove. If you fall off a horse, you get back up. I am not a quitter. I hung on for as long as possible, until it was more hurtful to stay. I’m so grateful for the pain and the heartbreak. It gave me the courage to leave and brought me to the great love of my life.
