I was in the doldrums for a while after my athletics career ended in 1992.

But I find new projects and I keep things in perspective.

I never finished the 'Large Glass' because, after working on it for eight years, I probably got interested in something else; also, I was tired.

If you go out eight times and play tennis eight times this week, yeah, it's the same rules, but it's a different game every time you're out on that court.

I have six sisters and two beautiful daughters - that's eight women who mean the world to me. I support the Entertainment Industry Foundation and Lee National Denim Day because they fund programs that are making huge strides in breast cancer research and support.
