I'd never watch a horror film, but after I found out I was going to be in one, I watched, like, four of them, including The Shining, I was terrified - I couldn't sleep for days. But I wanted to get myself used to things I was going to see on the set.
I used to get a lot of people saying 'Oh, you are such a lucky granny.' But the fact of the matter is you can be a grandma at 35 these days.
When I got married, the Sun ran the headline: 'Here comes the bride, all fat and wide.' Luckily, it was a few days after the wedding - but it was still hideous to read at a great romantic moment.
I think self-esteem is fluid. It's not a fixed state, and so some days are better than others.
When you cry, you don't look very attractive; you look snotty and blotchy. People seem to manage to cry quite prettily these days, and to me, that smacks of not being very genuine.
Nowadays it seems more and more like the 'business' in 'show business' is underlined, and there are campaigns, and it's all part of getting people in to see the movies.
Nowadays, in the contract that actors sign, you have to agree that you're going to do a certain amount of publicity-the hard part they don't pay you for.
The only thing bad about winning the pennant is that you have to manage the All-Star Game the next year. I'd rather go fishing for three days.
When I look at the people who are the guiding figures in modern dance, I think, 'This does not look to me like the way I want to spend my days.'
I find that dancers are only well trained in ballet these days.
These days, I think we could all agree that having a just-friend is not a bad thing.
You have good days and bad days.
In the old days, I just could not leave characters alone. Now I just try to keep the ones that still have something in the way of stories to tell.
Some days, I just love the physical space of the theater. I love theaters; they are heartbreakingly beautiful to me.
It brings up happy old days when I was only a farmer and not an agriculturist.
