"Is it bad if I say no?" she replied. "It's not really something I think about. Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around."

"I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality," she said.

She added that she enjoys cooking for husband Ryan Sweeting five nights a week because it makes her "feel like a housewife." The couple celebrated their one-year anniversary on New Year's Eve.
