The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - REAL LIFE -

1 Mod­ern tech­nol­ogy con­fuses me. I didn’t grow up with tex­ting or Face­book – just tele­phones and an­swer­ing ma­chines. So if you want to talk to me, do it in per­son. 2 My skin is my Achilles heel. It’s sen­si­tive and if I’m not care­ful, I break out in spots. Noth­ing up­sets me more than that. Some women have bad hair days — I have bad skin days. 3 In my teens I was go­ing to marry one of Du­ran Du­ran. I’d never met them but knew that as soon as I did they’d know it was meant to be. I did meet Si­mon Le Bon once, but not un­til I was older, which is just as well – if I’d been a teenager, I would have had a heart at­tack and died. 4 Cameron Diaz keeps bad­ger­ing me to be more eco-friendly. I have ef­fi­cient light bulbs, I drive a hy­brid car, I try not to run water too long... but it’s not enough for her. She chases me around my house turn­ing lights off and leav­ing nasty Post-it notes about what I’m do­ing wrong. 5 I re­ally love Her­mès scarves and I’m build­ing up a col­lec­tion of them – but I can’t fig­ure out how to wear them. Euro­pean women put them on and look so so­phis­ti­cated... I just look like some big old cow­girl. It’s not fair.
