I look like the people that walk down the street. I don’t have perfect boobs, I don’t have zero cellulite, of course I don’t, and I’m curvy. If that is something that makes women feel empowered in any way, that’s great. On a deeper, subconscious level, it’s one of the reasons why I’ve allowed my stupid self to be so naked on screen… I couldn’t give a shit. I mean, I’m so much less self-conscious and I think that’s something to do with getting older and acceptance of one’s self, feeling stronger, feeling more confident. I think confidence does come with time and I’ve been really surprised by that actually. I mean, I remember being 21 and imagining that at 36 my tits would be around my knees and I would have bad hair and terrible teeth. When you are younger, somehow being in your later thirties just seems really old. But I feel stronger, fitter and more comfortable in my own skin now than I have ever done.

I love the “being 21 and imagining that at 36 my tits would be around my knees” bit.
