I can easily sleep from nine to 13 hours a night.
From 1 till 7, when we moved to England, I spoke only Portuguese.
I couldn't imagine playing someone young now; it would be so boring.
I don't want three million people digesting my private life over their cornflakes.
The first thing you have to do is accept that decay sets in and there's nothing you can do about it.
The funny thing is I'm not bothered or sad about being on my own - after all I've never had a husband.
We all know now that people can look good for their age. It isn't so extraordinary, I don't know why people go on about it so much.
Thank God we're not like America. Everyone wants to look like they're 20. In Europe we admire grown-up women; I think men revere older women.
The wonderful thing about acting is you move along with your decade. The older you get, the more interesting the parts you get to play and you bring more of your personal experience to the part.
