LHJMay2014CoverSally Field covered this month’s Ladies Home Journal to promote The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and she looked better than ever. Read some choice quotes from the Oscar winning actress below, and catch her on the big screen May 2nd.

On her new found freedom:

“This is the first time in my life I find myself standing in place going, Now what? Wait a minute, you mean it’s up to me? Suddenly my life is open to possibilities.”

On her recent move to New York City:

“There’s so much to do that sometimes I just say, ‘Okay, Field, you have to stop for two nights and just read your book!’”

On balancing work and raising children:

“The balancing act is hell, let’s face it.”

On how her kids acknowledge her celebrity status:

“They do and they don’t. It’s funny how they maneuver it. My older sons basically don’t let anyone know I’m their mom.”

On finding her voice to fight for the role of Mary Todd Lincoln:

“I usually don’t have the courage, but this time I knew I had to make a stand.”

On wearing her heart on her sleeve:

“If you keep your emotions in check and swallow them down and don’t talk about something that deeply moves you, then you’re living half a life.”

On finding the energy to pursue her passions:

“Sometimes I have a lot of energy. But what you don’t see a lot of times is that I’m very quiet and introspective.”

On her dating status:

“When you get to a certain age, you’re not dating. I’m not taking myself off the market – not that I’m on the market. I’m just alive.”

On her five-year plan:

”I’m just trying to look at what’s important to me, and let go of the things that are not of value. Right now, I’m looking at myself in the mirror and asking, ‘Who do I want to be when I grow up?’”
