I think lines are hallmarks of your history and something to be proud of, and I really, really like mine. I love the classics – I read The Iliad and The Odyssey last year and I can still recite 800 lines of Shakespeare from when I played Viola at school. But then I suppose you could say I have been acting a lot in my life.It’s been quite a big stage and I have been standing on it for about ten years.Single – but currently sharing her London base with ‘super dude’ Bobby Sabel, 25 (model and former Celebrity Big Brother contestant) – she opens up about her new nose, her devotion to the Duchess of Cambridge, the creative secrets behind her new novel Infidelity, and the release of an accompanying downloadable ‘soundscape’ album Music From and Inspired by Infidelity..But then I was lost in space for 13 years and if you subtract those years I am still in my 20s.I have always thought, ‘Why do I have to feel better? It’s not like I could slip on a bikini and go on a beach and look like a supermodel.I am indulging it and sometimes you have to work things through.’ I think that those dark times are the moments when you get to really know yourself, and I know myself pretty well by now.. At home the rule was that a woman should always have a smile on her face at meal times. I don’t weigh myself; I gauge my weight by whether I can get into my clothes or not. I have a muscular body and I am also quite like a boy. – seven or maybe just eight – and I couldn’t stand it.I don’t like to take anything any more if I have a headache – I use Tiger Balm and things like that, and music is the best release for me. I spent the best part of two years – under an assumed name – working on creating the music that accompanies the book and I am really proud of it..It annoys me that when you are going through a dark time – say, when you have split up with your boyfriend – people always immediately try to make you feel better.
When I stop needing that maybe I will start worrying about ageing. These days my forehead moves up and down of its own accord and there are lines around my eyes.I have been tempted to have implants – I gave my heroine in the book the breasts I have always wanted – but until I am with a guy who says ‘Give me a pair of big breasts’ I am not going to bother. I was unbelievably homesick; I don’t think I stopped crying for the first three months.My parents didn’t know because they don’t let you home for the first term – it’s quite tough.because I have grown up in a family that doesn’t do divorce – my parents have a very good marriage and so do my brother James and my sister Santa who is married to author and historian Simon Sebag Montefiore.I think one of the reasons I have steered clear of marriage is that I have seen so much infidelity around me in the past ten years.
