The older I get, the more open-minded I get, the less judgmental I get.
The adrenaline of a live performance is unlike anything in film or theater. I can see why it's so addictive.
My father, he was like the rock, the guy you went to with every problem.
I'm not sure how healthy bacon is in general, but I know it's incredibly delicious.
My life comes down to three moments: the death of my father, meeting my husband, and the birth of my daughter. Everything I did previous to that just doesn't seem to add up to very much.
Beauty, to me is about being comfortable in your own skin.
Creating a meal for my friends and family, sitting together, eating, laughing and talking - that is when I am so happy. Oh my God, if you could see how much food I make - I am the original Jewish mother.
I don't eat red meat, but sometimes a man needs a steak.
I have a very highly developed sense of denial.
During the strict macrobiotic chapter of my life, I ate miso soup every day for breakfast and sometimes with dinner as well.
My life is good because I am not passive about it. I invest in what is real. Like real people, to do real things, for the real me.
When you're so out there in the public eye, people are constantly criticizing every aspect about you.
It's a waste of time for people to say things they think other people want to hear, or try and come off in a certain way. I try to be as honest as I can.
I'm hard on myself, so I'm working on shifting perspective toward self-acceptance, with all my flaws and weaknesses.
I eat whatever I want. I like bread and cheese and wine, and that makes my life fun and enjoyable.
If we were living in ancient Rome or Greece, I would be considered sickly and unattractive. The times dictate that thin is better for some strange reason, which I think is foolish.
I don't know who decided that skinny was more appealing than not skinny. It seems arbitrary.
The simpler things are, the happier they are.
In Britain, they have a lot of laws to protect you, and we enforce them very strongly so that our children can stay private figures, and the British press leave us alone, which is great. It means we can go on the Tube into the centre of London because it's quicker and more fun for the kids. We can do normal things.
I love getting cookbooks - people will give them to me, and I read them like novels and file everything away.
