“I think all women who work and have families struggle with that; finding that right balance. I’m such a control freak and I was able to juggle a lot until I had my first child. It was a rude awakening for me. It was the first time in my life I couldn’t do everything. I realised at that point that a person could have it all, but they can’t do it all. That was a really hard adjustment for me. But there’s nothing more unpredictable and harder and humbling than being a parent ... I can’t see myself ever retiring. Ever. I started working part-time when I was 14 and still at school. And I’ve never stopped. From the moment I started, I loved it, and I feel like I always need to be productive in some way. When the kids were growing up, it was challenging and creative and a big project. But who knows? I may not always be acting; I hope I am." - Michelle Pfeiffer via Stylist Magazine
