"The center of my life is my kids," the Oscar winner tells the Los Angeles Times.
But she's quick to point out that it's not always easy having such a big brood.
"I woke up at 3 in the morning with four kids with jet lag and two babies," she says, recalling a recent trip to Hollywood. "I put myself together for a few hours and go out. And then I go home. This is my job."
Not that she's complaining, mind you.
"I don't dislike it here," insists the globe-trotter, referring to Tinseltown. "I just really do love to travel. I love other cultures. And I love raising my kids in the world. I'm so fortunate that I get to do that."
