"I'm not a period babe. Not at all."
"I'm a bit famous now! It's a bit strange!"
"I feel my responsibility as a successful English actress is to say to all
those young women who are out there in turmoil about their weight: "Life is
short and it's here to be lived".
"There's more to life than cheekbones!"
"I've always felt older than I am, and don't really relate to people my own
age. They do say I'm mature for my years, and I think it has to do with starting
work at an early age and spending time alone, depending on yourself and no one
"Sometimes you just want to walk up to people and say, 'Look, I fart, I
burp, I don't necessarily shower every day, I don't have any plastic surgery and
I don't have colonic irrigation. It is a head mess to me that people think
because you are a successful actor in films you are different."
"You know, but I want to eventually have babies, and make cakes and go for
nice long walks and all those normal things."
"Just because they lived 200 years ago doesn't mean that they didn't go to
the toilet and pick their noses and feel what we feel. Emotions have not

"I'm just incredible lucky...I've been unbelievably lucky."
"I love to dance, but I can count the number of times I've been to a club
on one hand, because I can't relate to the drug scene at all. You see these
people seemingly having a good time and you realise they're on Ecstasy. Drugs
frighten me so much. It's partly because I'm a control freak and can't bear the
idea of not being in control of myself, that's why I don't drink very much. I

"I'm more than happy to play a part in a smaller project if I really love
the script, the material."
"My dad's ever so funny. He's very laid back and treats it just like a job.

"I knew, right from the start, that it was not a matter of putting on red
lipstick and tying your hair in bunches and saying 'I want to be a star.'"
"I think it's important not just to see perfect bodies in films. You see
these love scenes where there's a 40-year-old woman with the most perfectly
toned buttocks ever and that's just not true to life."
"My real hair color is blonde. For Titanic, they dyed it red. But I've been
most shades for films & I like the chameleon aspect of the profession."
"And if all did go horribly wrong, I'd go back to the part-time jobs &
the sandwich shop. I'd happily do that."
