3 Has been in a relationship with Mad Men (2007) lead actor Jon Hamm since 1997. They live together in Los Angeles. They split up in 2015.

7 Jennifer's mother is from a German Jewish and Russian Jewish family. Jennifer's father has English, and some Swedish, Irish, French, and Scottish, ancestry. Through her father, Jennifer is descended from a Swedish nobleman (whose surname was originally "Wästfeldt"), and she is therefore listed in the Swedish Book of Peerage.

1 As an actor on sets, I've always clocked how hard the crew works, how much longer their days are, how much lesser their glory is - and the fact that their commitment to the work and project is unwavering, no matter the budget.
2 I think film is collaboration, and I always want to hear everyone's input.
3 I'm not a parent yet, but I feel like a kid needs to be loved.
4 I'm pretty much honest to a fault. It's my best and my worst quality.
5 My mom and my stepdad are both therapists.
6 Well, you know, I'm quite a reluctant writer. I'm not someone who set out to be a writer or really wanted to be.
7 Dogs just need you and love, that's all.
8 As an actor, I've always been interested in making sure I can perform the role and the lines in the way the writer intended.
9 I always cry at weddings; they're beautiful, and I'm always moved.
10 I guess what I learned about myself is I'm a bit of a socialist; I want everyone on the set to get equal treatment and credit.
11 I seem to only write New York stories because it's the only thing that inspires or interests me.
