At boarding school I even kept mice in my underclothes drawer. It made me smell most attractive, as you can imagine.

Giraffes are completely tranquil-they have no predators as adults because there’s not an animal in the jungle stupid enough to go for them.

Giraffes are fairytale animals, almost heraldic-as if from the land of fables. They have extremely beautiful faces, huge eyes, very sensitive nostrils and Oh, blue tongues!

Hundreds of political prisoners still suffer in Tibetan prisons. Freedom of speech is not allowed in any sense. It is illegal to possess a photo of the Dalai Lama.

I can’t see any difference in having your hair dyed, your teeth fixed, your nose done, or your face smoothed out or lifted.

I like to keep up the image of smoking, only because it’s getting such a bad press!

When you are in a country where nobody has ever seen television, people look at you with eyes that don’t know who you are.

I don’t think men are that attracted by glamour. I think women are attracted by glamour. I think men are attracted by a sense of friendship.

I’ve got lots of good friends. I could have affairs. I can read a book all night, put the cat on the end of the bed. I can pick up my passport and go to France. I don’t have to ask anybody.
