I call it fan fatigue. I went to see Bob Dylan last year, who I think is absolutely incredible, but he suffers from his audience.
I’m always shocked by the people who I’m attracted to. It’s always completely random. I generally like people who are a bit crazy but yeah, that’s pretty much my only prerequisite.
Because we were raised around art and went to museums and the women I grew up around were curvy there wasn’t this value on skinny, skinny, skinny. Curvy was clearly meant to be the winner.

Maybe it’s because I’m English, but in terms of how people perceive us I only pick up on the negative side of it.
I’ve got a terrible memory – I end up repeating myself quite a lot. The only thing I can remember is that I’m going to repeat myself!
We’ll probably end up doing a terrible crossover, where the Matthew Perry character on the drama rapes my character on the comedy-and then the Law & Order’ team solves the crime.
