A lot of young actresses have a hard time combining a reasonable love life with a career.
I will do my best to entertain. That's what I am: an entertainer.
Generally, I'm a pretty positive, but like any other working person, if the jobs aren't coming in, I do get depressed.
I was so beautiful but I didn't realise it for years. I saw photos of myself and even I was stunned.
I love luxury, I love the high life, and I have to foot the bills - I have received practically nothing from my marriages and relationships.
I'm a very physical person. I like to run and I like to work out.
I've been doing Pilates since 1974, I lift weights, I power walk every day and I run backwards. That's sometimes a little hard when you're not on your home turf, because you've got to find a place where there are no bumps in the way - or people.
I had a husband who, I'm convinced, was an undiagnosed manic depressive. He didn't treat me as if I had a brain - I was just this beautiful little doll he could show off.
