Speaking to Vogue, she said: "It's so scary to talk about motherhood.

"Only because it's so different for everybody. If I say 'It was amazing from the start', some people will think 'It wasn't amazing for me at first', and feel bad.

"Fortunately I have so many girlfriends who were honest.

"Who were like, 'It's scary. You might not connect right away. You might not fall in love right away'. So I felt so prepared to be forgiving.

"I remember walking with one of my best friends at, like, nine months, and being like, 'Everyone keeps saying that I will love my baby more than my cat. But that's not true. Maybe I'll love him as much as my cat?'"

She added: "The morning after I gave birth, I felt like my whole life had started over. Like, now is day one of my life. I just stared.

"I was just so in love. I also fell in love with all babies everywhere.

"Newborns are just so amazing. They're these pink, swollen, fragile little survivors. Now I love all babies.

"Now I hear a baby crying in a restaurant and I'm like, 'Awwww, preciousssss.'"

The Don't Look Up actress recently explained why she took a break from acting, after appearing in 14 films in seven years.

"I was not pumping out the quality that I should have," she said.

"I just think everybody had gotten sick of me. I'd gotten sick of me.

"It had just gotten to a point where I couldn't do anything right. If I walked a red carpet, it was, 'Why didn't she run?'… I think that I was people-pleasing for the majority of my life."
