"We are a society filled with information and chatter. Books on parenting, education, relationships fill our shelves. We pour money into books and exercise programs which we hope will give us the perfect body—a body most of us will never have.
This world validates women for being skinny and then slams women for being anorexic. We see the judgment as women gain weight in pregnancy, and then we wonder how this celebrity or that one lost it all in time for the red carpet. When I shot the Matrix, I worked out 6 days a week, I had a personal trainer, a chef, and an assistant. I loved every moment of cultivating Trinity, but the reality is that most of us will never have those luxuries. We all know the media shows woman in a very unrealistic way, and finding our authentic voice in our day to day lives can take a lot of filtering.
For me it takes protection, too. Protection from a society that makes very little sense to me—a society which doesn't value mothers or aging. A world that, if we let it, will turn us against ourselves."
