Jane Birkin quotes

When you start recognising that you're having fun, life can be delightful.

Nothing has ever touched on what fun childhood was. Summer holidays were bliss. We made home movies, with real stories in them. My father had such charm and charisma, and made everything so funny.

I feel most comfortable in an old pair of jeans, Converse, and a man's jersey. My best friend cuts my hair with kitchen scissors.

I think I did a lot of humorous films when I was young, and they were No. 1 films.

Keep smiling - it takes 10 years off!

My mother was right: When you've got nothing left, all you can do is get into silk underwear and start reading Proust.

If I were mayor, I'd invite everyone to have free boat trips on the river and free balloon rides over the city. I'd let the elderly in residential homes wander free.

I put some red stuff on my mouth and cheeks so I look healthy - any old red lip pencil and a lip colour from Dr. Hauschka in a crushed berry tone. I never put anything on my eyes, or I look like Joan Crawford.

It's usually a jolly good trick to pick up a local tour guide. They can tell you all the anecdotes that make a place interesting. I'm one for rushing off to museums at the crack of dawn, eating fabulous things on terraces for lunch, and enjoying long dinners on balmy evenings.

Big Ben... hearing the chimes makes me feel at home.

He painted me when I was young because he was in love with me, but now that he has loved me he doesn't paint me anymore.

If you fall in love with a country and its people, that makes any country warm to you.

I have never written a book about my life, despite being offered purses of gold. I made 'Boxes' because I wanted to make a sincere depiction of a daughter who has lost her father, or the jealousy one can feel towards a daughter who has become more beautiful than you and whose stepfather starts to take her shopping.

My father was a painter, so I was encouraged to take a sketchbook everywhere. Cameras are perishable, but I still have tonnes of sketchbooks from all the trips I've ever been on. It gets you by when you don't know what to give people as a gift; drawings are good souvenirs.

I know what it's like to have someone coming home who looks at you not in the way they used to in the old days, and I've seen my own face contorted with sadness and rage in the mirror.

There's no fun in a bag if it's not kicked around so that it looks as if the cat's been sitting on it - and it usually has. The cat may even be in it! I always put on stickers and beads and worry beads. You can get them from Greece, Israel, Palestine - from anywhere in the world.

A Birkin bag is a very good rain hat; just put everything else in a plastic bag.

People always like things that seem exotic.

I don't know why people keep banging on about the '60s. I came from a conventional family and I didn't go off with different people - I rather wish I had now, seeing all the fun everyone else was having.

I love the French very much, and I think they know that. I've been adopted here. They treat me as one of their own.

When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers, I kind of wanted to be a vampire. Angelina Jolie age

If I gave you any thought I probably would. Peter Lorre

The difference between a hero and a coward is one step sideways. Gene Hackman
