“I’m not very good at putting on makeup, which is, I think, a result of having had my makeup done for 20-plus years,” she confessed to
Into the Gloss
in a recent interview.

“We’re human beings and the sun is the sun — how can it be bad for you? I don’t think anything that’s natural can be bad for you,” she once told British Cosmopolitan.

“I eat whatever I want,” she told Harper’s Bazaar Australia. “I like bread and cheese and wine, and that makes my life fun and enjoyable.”

“[My guilty pleasure is] my one light American Spirit that I smoke once a week, on Saturday night,” she confessed to Harper’s Bazaar.

“I am who I am,” she told ELLE U.K. “I can’t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year.”
