Did your mother work when you were growing up?

Yes, she was the main breadwinner. She did everything for me, and she was amazing. That’s why I think it is now my turn to help her.

Are you planning to always be the primary breadwinner?

I’m not planning, but if it happens, it happens. (smiles)

How do you think society views female breadwinners?

For me it’s so normal, maybe because I lived in L.A. and it is so common there. I think it is really weird some people think female breadwinners are “the destruction of society” or things like that. This is 2013, and so many family-related things have changed. I don’t think it should even be an issue.

What does “having it all” means to you? Do you think you “have it all”?

No, I don’t have it all. Having it all means to be able to provide a quality of life for the people you love. Right now, I’m doing my best but I took a huge pay cut to come to SA, yet SA is cheaper [than L.A.], so I’m hanging in there. I’m not just paying for me now, but for three. So no, I don’t have it all yet. Having it all for me would be to pay for everyone’s bills and being able to take them out for a nice dinner on the weekends and not having to worry about gas or anything else.

*Full disclosure: Woods works at the Current.
