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

1 When my sons were grow­ing up, I in­sisted that they learn how to cook. They’d try to im­press girls by crack­ing jokes, and I’d say, ‘Don’t try to be so amus­ing. Just make sure you know how to cook her din­ner.’ It seems to be work­ing. 2 I’m still in touch with my ex-hus­band, Chris Saran­don. We ex­changed pho­to­graphs of our kids and the weird thing is that his son, Michael, and my son, Jack, look spook­ily sim­i­lar. They’re both tall and blond with sim­i­lar fea­tures. Strange. 3 Teach­ing my daugh­ter the im­por­tance of birth con­trol was sim­ple. I just showed her some very graphic pho­tos of her own birth, and she’s been care­ful ever since! 4 When I’m up­set about some­thing and can’t sleep, I go walk­ing. There’s a great path near where I live in New York called the West Side High­way, and I walk there any time of the night. It beats stay­ing in bed wor­ry­ing. 5 I lived with French film di­rec­tor Louis Malle for two years but never got very good at French. I’d go to din­ner with him and his friends and they’d be talk­ing so in­tensely, they’d be froth­ing at the mouth, and I’d be think­ing, ‘What can they be talk­ing about? The war? Pol­i­tics?’ It usu­ally turned out to be the food!
