The things that make me happiest in the whole world are going on the occasional picnic, either with my children or with my partner; big family gatherings; and being able to go to the grocery store - if I can get those things in, I'm doing good.
Life is short, and it is here to be lived.
Real luxury is having the time to read endless stories in bed with my children. And I get that all the time. I'm so blessed.
Plastic surgery and breast implants are fine for people who want that, if it makes them feel better about who they are. But, it makes these people, actors especially, fantasy figures for a fantasy world. Acting is about being real being honest.
I feel very strongly that 'curves' are natural, womanly and real.
Glamour to me is about remaining graceful and understated.
The good and bad things are what form us as people... change makes us grow.
I think heartbreak is something that you learn to live with as opposed to learn to forget.
One thing I love about being back is English rain. Looking out of the window now, it's raining, and the sky is dark; I love it. To me, those are reassuringly English things. I love it when it rains.
I'd much rather be known as some curvy Kate than as some skinny stick.
A lot of the girls were awful, very catty. It was a competitive environment that I didn't like. You have no idea of the anorexia I saw around me.
I do think it's important for young women to know that magazine covers are retouched. People don't really look like that.
I know the true meaning of getting by by the skin of my teeth; I do. It doesn't matter whether you've got money or you haven't, whether you're famous or not. This is the case for all women, actually; you have to carry on. You always have to carry on. And you can, because you have to.
I burp, I fart. I'm a real woman.
I think any form of self-expression is half confidence, half sheer hard work and, maybe, a bit of talent thrown in.
