I don’t have dating tips.
As a young man even if I was going to see a play or a film by myself I didn’t feel like I was alone. There was something that was unfolding up there that brought me into it. And I recognised that. For those two hours it made me feel like I belonged to something really good.
I drink Diet Coke from the minute I get up to the minute I go to bed.
Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Cricket makes no sense to me. I find it beautiful to watch and I like that they break for tea. That is very cool but I don’t understand. My friends from The Clash tried to explain it years and years ago but I didn’t understand what they were talking about.

Dreams have only the pigmentation of fact.
I have three dogs a cat fish. I’m a huge animal lover. They’re amazing.
If you continually diet you are putting your body in a quasi-famine situation. It slows your metabolism down and breaks the thermostat. Diets don’t work. They don’t help you understand why you’re eating more than your body wanted in the first place.
I would point out that I’m an actress for a reason! If I were popular in high school I would have considered another career because I wouldn’t have been alone in my room making up other characters for myself. I definitely had growing pains.
