I've never been any good with authority.


Authority figures are so irritating. Because they always tell you to do things for reasons that aren't very good. That sums up what authority is about for me.

My idea of a holiday was following my family up the hill with my pekinese, who would skip over the heather in front of me.

As a kid I would be put to bed when my parents had guests and because I was such a show-off I would go to my mum's room, put on her nightdress and Jackie Onassis shawl, run downstairs, go outside, ring the doorbell and pretend to be one of the guests. I'd say, 'Hello, I'm Mrs. So-and-So.' (

Actors make bad lovers. Their most important kiss is for the camera. Not in a superficial way, in a really deep way. They can only give everything if they know someone is going to shout cut!

I don't want to be carried out of a club wearing a tie-dye T-shirt and a cap on the wrong way around when I am 70, but I would like to settle down a bit. Maybe with a partner.

Being gay and being a woman has one big thing in common, which is that we both become invisible after the age of 42. Who wants a gay 50-year-old? No one, let me tell you.

I am at that age when you panic at the slightest thing. (

I seem to have been everywhere in the last 30 years, maybe not in the epicenter but flying around the periphery of extraordinary events and equally extraordinary people.

It's amazing the clarity that comes with psychotic jealousy.

Why would I wear pink trousers? It`s hard enough being gay.

I have nothing to complain about... except maybe people wondering if a queen like me can butch-it-up enough to play a convincing straight man.

I`m a sex machine to both genders. It`s all very exhausting. I need a lot of sleep.

I don`t understand what he`s got against her because this is the second time he`s stuck into her a bit. That seems really unfair to me. Listen, any singer who dances all the time, you don`t have the breath to sing all the time. Everyone knows that. It`s unfair to make it a point. If you do a heavy dance routine, at some point you`re going to do a bit of lip-synch. But everybody does that. Madonna sings everything she can sing but, if she goes into a dance routine, she`s got to dance; you can`t breathe and dance and sing at the same time. She doesn`t lip-synch her whole performance. I bet Elton has lip-synched moments of his performance, even though he`s at a piano all the time. He`s very bossy these days, I think. I mean he`s lovely but he`s a bit bossy and he does seem a bit cranky.

I think Elton has lost it completely. He loves to tell you how he overcame addictions - drugs, bulimia... He did not overcome addictions. He went from one to another... All these shopping sprees, and not controlling his mouth.

English actors are treated like immigrants - they`re a gypsy race. They go where the work is and there`s never been much work in England. They`re treated very badly.

One of the great things about getting older is that unemployment becomes more and more fun.

(on Americans) Now they are whiny victims whose language is entirely taken from two TV shows - "Friends" (1994) and "Sex and the City" (1998) - and there`s nothing sexy about them any more.
