According to The Hollywood Reporter, she told the audience: "Some people think, like in my family, you talk to a priest and that's it. I don't feel comfortable talking to him about my feelings."

She continued: "I didn't grow up in an environment where you talked about this stuff, and it was just like shut it down and keep it moving. So I find a lot of inspiration just in talking to my kids."

And despite her children's privileged upbringing, Jessica admitted in a past interview that she is strict about making sure they know the value of hard work.

She told Parents magazine that she is often asked by her kids why she works so hard. Her answer to them was: "Do you like your life? Because it's not free. Your dad and I work hard so you can have everything you have. That's why you take care of your stuff"

She added: "And guess what?! If you don't work hard, your life won't always be like this. You've got to figure out what you want to do. Go to school, do well, treat others well."
