# Quote
1 How lucky am I? I mean look at the range of that in a year. Women of my age have every right to complain that they don’t get good roles, and the amount of times that women of my age say ‘your dinner’s in the oven, honey’ and I haven’t said that once.
2 I love working and the next person who comes up with an abrasive, intelligent woman I shall snap it up.
3 My father was very ill a couple of years ago and his body gave out on him for a while. When they wheeled him out of heart surgery I thought, my body works. My skin may have wrinkles but it’s because I’m smiling so much. That might sound like some terrible American greetings card, but I feel it’s immoral for me to castigate my body for getting older, when it does everything I ask of it.
4 I don’t feel under pressure to work because I love what I do and I wanted to do the projects that came my way.
5 When the Hollywood thing happened, I thought at some point I’d get to the front of the queue: «Yes, hello, I’d like to play that role.» But you don’t. You just join a different queue.
