- On her French:"My French is okay, but when my friends are talking about books and philosophy, that's a level of conversation I'm just not ready for linguistically. And maybe intellectually."

- On living in Paris:"This French friend of ours just told me that being in Los Angeles, he missed having serious conversations at dinner. In Paris, if you're at dinner and there isn't a debate, you leave and think, 'Well, that wasn't a very good party.' But no one ever does that here. And I thought, I like just having happy talk!"

- On asking Cate Blanchett for parenting advice:"Cate Blanchett is an amazing person. Very early on, I asked her about being a parent. I said, 'How do you do it? You're a mom. You're the best at what you do.' She said, 'You just do. Stressing about it doesn't help.'"

- Talks about Jane Got a Gun, a Western film she produced and her directorial debut A Tale of Love and Darkness, which she also stars in and wrote entirely in Hebrew

- On her Jewish heritage:"It's a very strange place to be from. When you say, 'I'm for Israel,' everyone wants to have a 10-hour political conversation. Everyone has a very strong, passionate opinion about it. But I'm grateful for it. I had so many friends who asked when we were younger, 'Who am I? What's my identity?' I never questioned my identity."

- On red carpet interviews:"I get asked so many questions about the Middle East, and I'm like 'Can you please just ask me about my dress? Let's just talk about the dress!'" [interviewer notes that she says this half-laughing] "I like to look at what people are wearing, but I do see the sexism in it. Yeah, you could reject it all, but I don't know anyone who has done that and been able to maintain the level of work I'd like to maintain."
