Appearing on the cover of PORTER, The Dark Knight Rises Star explained that the decision to keep her life behind curtains is not only for herself but for her family. She was quoted saying,

“It’s something I feel is not just essential for my health – I’m on a team, it’s my family, and it’s not just about me.” She continued, “My family has needs, and one of the needs of children is that they need to be able to define their own lives. It doesn’t even occur to me to link the two up, except through gratitude that they serve each other so beautifully. But they serve each other through me, and not through a space that’s outside of myself.”
