I love men. They are intelligent and sensitive, but there's also that hard-edged arrogant side, which is just so attractive.
I think I'd be more relaxed as an older mum, although fundamentally life with a baby is pretty much the same whatever age you are. It's nappies, crying, feeding.
I am a very open person, and I'm always nervous of being misconstrued. Sitting in the middle of a restaurant makes me nervous. I feel like I'm being judged. And it's funny that I should feel that way.
Like lots of women who marry young and find themselves mothers by the time they're 25, I felt I no longer had an identity.
By the time I was 29 I'd spent eight years with someone else's group of friends. I had no idea what it was like to be a woman with mates of her own to socialize with.
It was all about flying round the world, working hard, being on the cover of Vogue, making money. It wasn't fun. It was exhausting, but I was young and convinced I knew best.
There's a side of me that dislikes feminism. I think we surrendered something and women were unable to reveal any kind of vulnerability.
I went out with this boy on the proviso that he didn't tell anybody we were together. The idiot didn't keep his mouth shut. I dumped him. I never went out with a boy from school again.
The fidelity question is difficult for me. Society has made us believe we're supposed to be monogamous when we're not killer whales, or whatever the monogamous species is.
Once I was chased by the king of all scorpions. I have the most notorious animal stories.
I'm a dreadful romantic. No matter what I go through in life, I want to fall in love with a man.
I'd like to open an animal orphanage in Kenya. I do a lot of work for Born Free.
Sometimes I think I am still that 5-year-old girl playing with her dogs in the yard. That's how I see myself.
And I'm a pretty positive person – I don't put a lot of energy into worrying, and I'm not a person who lives in a great deal of fear.
Because I've been on the receiving end of infidelity, I know how much it hurts.
Men act out like they're horrified by marriage, but when they find the woman of their dreams, they love it.
God and death kind of resemble each other, because the only time a lot of people will try and talk to God is when someone's died.
My dad was very fun and very adventurous, and from a formative age I learned to value men who would do things on a whim.
But things move in circles: one minute it's the models who are famous, then it's the actresses, then it's the designers.
Teach your children everything that you're not, because they will pick up on everything that you are.
