In an 2009 interview, Ginnifer Goodwin said she has learned that women “don’t have to compromise” when it comes to finding a mate. “I know now that there are men out there who are, for me, the whole package, who are supportive of my successes because they know I will be just as supportive of theirs. I’m less tolerant of foolishness now; I know that it’s important I not tie myself up with the wrong person, because then I will miss the right person coming along.”
