I think we all have a selfish gene which rises to the top, sometimes. But then we're also all capable of a sudden magnanimity.
When you research someone, you actually get beyond your own preconceptions and become aware of the human being other than the image. You become empathetic and sympathetic in turn.
People smile at me as if they know me. I just smile back. They probably might know me.
I like reflecting the culture I understand best, spotting the idiosyncrasies of British people and revealing them to an audience in a way that amuses is what I find fun.
In today's politics, it would be good to have politicians who are more upfront about what they felt and actually not trying to bend with every breeze. They're infuriating, all of them.
I'm not that comfortable with actors receiving honours, partly because I think they ought to go to those who really help others.
Other people have a much better idea of what I might do than I.
It's fatal to talk about acting. It sounds faintly ridiculous if you start analysing it.
I like being able to go to the supermarket and go on the Tube and have an ordinary domestic life. I'd hate to have to protect myself. I'm quite lucky that I can carry on without any intrusions. I don't get given a hard time by anyone.

The films I enjoy seeing are those that reveal lives I was unaware of... in different cultures or whatever.
A make-up artist I know polished her Oscar and it lost its lustre. But if you don't polish it, it doesn't tarnish.

I haven't got a writer's discipline.
I love a really good storyline.
