Liz: I do see all these stories about me living on a teaspoon of gruel a day. It makes me laugh because it's just not true. Rarely a day goes by when I don't have a bag of crisps or some chocolate.
Liz: I have three lives: actress, model, producer. Sometimes I'm aware that there's a fourth life, which is somewhat neglected, which is living a bit.
Liz: Being English, I always laugh at anything to do with the lavatory or bottoms.
Liz: I certainly don't want a child of mine to be famous, or anyone I was very close to who isn't yet... It's the worst thing to be trapped in your house not be able to leave.
Liz: Nothing irritates me more than chronic laziness in others. Mind you, it's only mental sloth I object to. Physical sloth can be heavenly.
Liz: (her diet secret) Eating off a tiny plate and using small cutlery are two of the psychological tricks I use on myself. It makes me less likely to overindulge, because it still looks like a good-size portion. The small cutlery also forces me to eat more slowly. It takes around 20 minutes for food to reach the stomach, so the slower you scoff, the fewer calories you're likely to consume.
Liz: I'd kill myself if I was as fat as Marilyn Monroe.
