He said: 'We don't have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice,' he said of the star.

'But we do have the kind of relationship where there'll be an e-mail saying, "Oh, your movie looks great. I touch base. I respect her. I like her. She's put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I'm really pleased to see her successful."

She said: "I should be more healthy, to be honest. My kids eat healthier than I because you want them to be healthy.

"But I have bad habits from, you know, growing up in the Bronx -- Hawaiian Punch, Kool-Aid! The more sugar, the better!"
