Kyra Sedgwick on Work, Family, and Empty Nests

The actress opens up about her long marriage, life as a working mom, and her new movie, 'The Possession.'

How Kyra Sedgwick Takes Care of Herself continued...

She cries. "I talk about my feelings in a lot of different venues, and I let them come out, and I cry," she says. "I spent so many years on The Closer living Brenda's life six months out of the year, and some of my emotions got squashed down pretty low. Since I finished the show, I've been letting all that flow. I don't wear mascara now, and it's great!"

She cuts herself some slack. "I wish I hadn't given myself such a hard time about working when the kids were younger," she says. "I'd be giving myself a hard time about the work while I was at work, but I couldn't be home, so I wasn't in either place. I regret that. I've learned to let myself off the hook."

She de-stresses by window shopping -- online. Sedgwick's favorite guilty pleasure is to log on to pricey shopping web sites and fill her virtual cart with everything she wants. "I load up bags, but I don't actually check out," she says. "Net-a-Porter is fun because the prices there are so outrageous, you're like, 'I'm definitely not clicking yes to check out!'"
