Getting a new passport took me a stupid amount of time. I had to go back five times with different photographs because they kept saying I was smiling, which is against the rules. I was not smiling.
When I'm a brunette, it's four times harder to hail a taxi. Then I go blonde again, and suddenly there are taxis everywhere.
I once had a friend who did the hair for sci-fi movies, and after a particularly bad break-up I stupidly went to her salon and told her she could do anything she liked. She dyed the bottom cherry red and the top peroxide blonde.
I think everyone is forgetting what plastic surgery is for - if you have a face-eating tumour, lose a breast or are involved in a car accident, then it's a good idea.
It's quite confusing being one of the less wealthy people at a posh place.
I don't have the self-discipline for diets; I break rules I set for myself, so I try and eat more healthily, juice more, and avoid sugar.
I'm a big fan of community, and I think independence is over-rated.
I have a lot of funny friends, though not everyone's funny all the time. Doon Mackichan's my funniest friend in the pub; Nina Conti's the funniest with a monkey.
I always carry a pair of scissors around with me to cut things out of magazines.
When I got pregnant with my first child, I gained nearly 5st. I did a bit of pretending: 'I'm just really small, so I just put on a lot of weight when I'm pregnant.' That is true, but I also ate a lot of cake.
My first film crush was Mark Lester as Oliver Twist in the Carol Reed film.
A Local Government Stationery Store is something to behold. It's like walking through the back of a cupboard into a really dull Narnia.
I would love to have been around in the Keystone Studios days.
I'm very devoted to my kids - I'm completely blind to their faults.
I've got spider veins all over my legs, so I wear opaque tights all winter. All sorts of colours.
