The best part about being friends with your parents is that no matter what you do, they have to keep loving you.
I love being a mum, but it's much more intensive work than being an actress - going to work feels like you've got a day off. Not that I want a day off from being a mum; it's just perhaps I had this impression before that mums don't work. But they work more than anyone.
My father has a general rule. He says if I haven't done it in real life I shouldn't do it on-screen.
I don't think I've ever been in love, I'm sure I will be some day. I've had enormous crushes, although I've never been into the Brad Pitt thing.
