Just because society, and government, and whatever was different 100 years ago, doesn't mean that people didn't have sex, pick their nose, or swear.
Since I was 13 or 14 I've always felt older than I actually am.
The experience of making a movie is far removed from watching the end result. It's exciting, but it still makes me squirm.
There's not an awful lot that embarrasses me. I'm the kind of actress that absolutely believes in exposing myself.
I suffered from 'No one will ever fancy me!' syndrome, well into my teens. Even now I do not consider myself to be some kind of great, sexy beauty. Absolutely not.
I was suddenly really famous, and I didn't know how to cope. I didn't know myself well enough as a person, number one, and as an actor, number two. I wanted to escape.
