I do find acting cathartic.
Truly charismatic people, in my experience, dont come along very often.
I didn't choose to be an actress
I can feel the 60S looming. In my profession, I've just moved along with my age. By thinking in decades, rather than whether someone's 42 or 47, you can give yourself a whole 10 years to turn yourself around in.
You can be revered for all sorts of qualities, but to be truly charismatic is rare. Elizabeth Taylor was, for me, one of those rarities.
You can love more than one person in your life, but things will be different. There'll be a different dynamic. Needs and desires change.
I'm often asked if I regret not going to Hollywood. I'm glad I didn't go, because if I had I wouldn't have my extended family, which is the fabric of my life. Only recently have I realised how special and unusual it is.
I don't buy the tabloids, but you're surrounded by it all and people tell you things they've read. I'd be sitting on a train looking over someone's shoulder and thinking: That's familiar... oh my God, it's me.
I go on giving interviews because I've been brought up to support the projects I'm involved in. When you've enjoyed working on a production, you want to do them a favour.
I maintain the rather old-fashioned view that this is my work and it's in the public arena, but that doesn't entitle everyone to know what happened at home before coming here.
When I was starting out, young actresses had the studio system to protect them. Now you have a host of sharks, from your agent to your publicist to your lawyer.
Some actors get fired up by the sound of the audience. I just want to retreat.
I do think it's important to live in the present because in that way you won't be living in a state of regret.
I don't believe in expending energy on something you can't do anything about. If there was some easy way of fixing things, I'd probably do it.
So many stars lose their way, and with success become more neurotic, not less so.
We all know now that people can look good for their age. It isn't so extraordinary, I don't know why people go on about it so much.
I was seen dancing at school by a director, who asked me to be in a TV play. And it had a huge impact. So I think thats what really started me off.
