You're not really from the farm.

 


“I remember so clearly, in the early days, if I had to do a piece of press, they’d phone for me and say, ‘Oh, we’re going to bring hair and makeup, it’ll take about five hours.’ And I said, ‘Well, if it was Ian McEwan, would it take about five hours? Would there be hair and makeup? Cause if that’s not the case, then don’t bring the hair and makeup.’ So, it’s fascinating that they just assume: it’s a young woman, she must want to be photographed for five hours. She must have nothing better to do than delight in trying on all your shoes. But it’s not the case.”
