Growing up in the 1980s, one of my earliest memories is of me in a terrycloth jumpsuit with rainbows on it and jelly shoes. My mum was 18 when she got pregnant and 19 when she had me. She then basically dressed me as a mini version of herself. There were a lot of Prince- and Madonna-inspired looks.
TV characters made a huge impression on me when I was younger, especially Claire Danes in My So-Called Life, and [the character] Kelly Bundy from Married with Children.
I’ve had several ‘What was I thinking?’ moments. In my late teens and early twenties I was a mess, I really didn’t have a clue. I remember wearing some outfits that showed my lower stomach, below the belly button. It was bad news, but then I got it together when I was 22.
With my first pay cheque I bought a Lanvin cashmere cable-knit sweater that had a gold thread through it. I still wear it.
When I want to put on sexy stuff in bed, I wear Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s M&S line. She’s a friend; she sent me some samples and I love them. For more classic pyjamas I wear a line called Marigot from New York.
I really enjoyed the costumes for Sin City. I needed a leather jacket for a scene and I already owned this beautiful Ralph Lauren one with wide shoulders and a tight waist, so I told the costume designer. She worked her magic and studded it up like crazy, and now my Ralph Lauren leather jacket has a metal cross and studs and spikes. It looks like armour.
When I’m filming, my trailer is always incredibly neat. I am really into being organised because otherwise how do you know where everything is? I label everything.
I give myself two hours upwards to get ready for an event, with someone else doing my hair and make-up. I could probably do it in 45 minutes, but I like to chat and my daughters Honor, five, and Haven, two, normally want my attention. When I do it myself I can’t be bothered, I just want to get it done; it’s 20 minutes max usually.
Almost every day my daughters will dress up in their pyjamas with my shoes on. I tell them they are going to fall over, especially in the high heels, so I encourage them to play with the flats instead.
Last Halloween I played Cher from The Witches of Eastwick and my other girlfriends were Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon.
I’ve just been to Paris Fashion Week. I loved every pair of Kenzo shoes that I saw. A lot of stuff at Dior was gorgeous — there was a stunning cobalt-blue coat. At Nina Ricci there were maroon and grey clothes that were beautiful and a maroon lacy gown. Those were the standouts.
At the H&M show I was sitting next to Solange Knowles and Jourdan Dunn. I told Jourdan that when I come back I want to look like her. That girl is flawless.
When I die all my organs will be donated, so I don’t know how much of me will be left to be buried in anything special. – Standard.co.ukTweet
