Hayley Mills: I think my childhood, in a way, went on too long. It went on... it went a bit too long on film. It went on a bit too long in my own consciousness, and... that was a lot to do with the fact that I sensed people didn't particularly want me to become an adult, and that's when your sensible, steady family background comes in. But, um, it was my life, and that's the life I have. That was, that was my particular experience of, of growing up. And I am everything that I am now, and all my experiences have brought me here. And... (long pause) so, that's how it was suppose to be.
