(on watching her figure) "Life is simply too short to think about everything you put in your mouth, and it's not good for children to see you picking over bits of salad."

"I think that it's pointless staying in a loveless marriage. I wasn't in a loveless marriage but if you're not happy, then that reflects - doesn't it? - on your children. Happy grown-ups make for happy children."

"I'm not self-conscious about my body, but I think I will keep it covered up after having three children. There comes a time when you have to say, 'Hmm, that's it, I think I'll save it for indoors."

(on what she clings on from childhood) "I think I've still got quite a childish sense of humour, and I'm quite giggly. I've been like that since I was quite little. I'm the worst for corpsing. I should make a mint in outtakes"

"We now think low-slung hipsters are very sexy but actually back then it was all about the waist. It took a while to get my head around the high waists – I was thinking, 'Gosh, this makes my bum look really long!"
