I like solitary pursuits, such as reading or pottering about in the garden.
Roses are my favourite flower, and my mum always grew a lot of them.
Wherever I am in the world, I never get Sunday night blues. I suppose it's because I've never worked at any one thing long enough to start hating it.
Do I think I'm under-educated? Academically, absolutely. I never took any exams, no O- or A-levels.
If ever I feel I might be able to tackle it, I'd love to try holding a spear or something in the theater, or opening a door, or anything, just to try it, you know, because it must be some marvelous magic thing.
Once cancer happens it changes the way you live for the rest of your life.
When you start acting as a child, you grow up ahead of your movies.
I always say a tremendous amount of healing is in your own hands.
My best feature is my hair.
My father was an inspiration to me; I made a few movies with him and I loved working with him. Everything about him - his whole approach to work, as well as his love, enthusiasm and respect for it and other people in the business - was inspiring. I was very lucky to have him as a role model.
Even when I became the typical shy adolescent, I never minded performing. I felt there was a kind of safety, a protection about being on stage, about losing myself in another character.
I have a horror of being in confined spaces.
I have a lot of mirrors around my house, not because I like to look at myself, but because I like the light and perspective they bring to a room.
I live in jeans and own a lot of them. I'm much more comfortable in trousers and T-shirts, and I don't often wear dresses.
In my life, things have happened to me. I've never felt I was controlling anything.
