"A lot of female journalists are writing about feminism again. Fucking great! Where have you been? You have to, you have a responsibility, portraying women in a positive light with all their flaws. And not going “Oh my god you’re 30, are you going to have an awful time?” No, no! Come on, woman!"

"I think when I was much younger, a lot of it was about trying to prove that I was better than everybody thought that I was, and I had a right to be there. I think as you get older, I can’t do anything about people’s opinions of me. It’s just one of those things. If anything has been positive over the last couple of years, it’s to be able to go, ‘I can only give it my best and I can’t control what people think.’”
(Talking about her wedding dress) Karl [Lagerfeld] very kindly designed me a jacket to go with it. I’d worn the dress lots. It was my something old. And I liked not making a big deal about it. I just wanted to be in something I had had a great time in, something I would have a great time in again.
(About destroying her writing) because I think once your creative thing becomes public, you want something in your private life that is entirely yours, something that is absolutely not for anything other than your own enjoyment. There is no way I would ever put it out there - my acting is out there, and I don’t need anything else out there. I mean, I very much value what is private to me, yeah, definitely. I don’t know if the writing is any good, and it probably isn’t, but that’s not really the point.

"Football is basically the reason I got a television. I didn’t have one before, because I didn’t know where I was going to be, so there was no point. And I got hounded by the TV license people. I’m like, ‘I don’t have a fucking TV license because I don’t have a TV! Please come in and see that I don’t have one!’ But now I have one because it was getting ridiculous watching football on the laptop."
