"I started writing these songs when I was in my darkest place...I was clinically depressed. I wasn't even having bouts of depression, I was like, I could not get out of bed."

On what brought about her bouts of depression: "My career didn't really meet my own personal expectations. Things started to shift. And I had broken up with Orlando... I wasn't getting high off of my own supply anymore."

""The release of 'Smile' is just my own personal touchstone of coming out of hell."

"On having a child with Orlando Bloom: "I know that bringing a child into the world sometimes can make things even more stressful... And I feel like if I can go through that stress with anyone, it's him."
