Quote of the day

If I had been around when Rubens was painting, I would have been revered as a fabulous model. Kate Moss? Well, she would have been the paintbrush. –  Dawn French who celebrates her 59th birthday today.

She also said:

It was my father who taught me to value myself. He told me that I was uncommonly beautiful and that I was the most precious thing in his life.


I’ve often said the most difficult things I have to say to people through humour. I can very quickly put someone in their place with it. But we all walk away unscathed because there’s been some funnies around it, and I’ll usually make sure that it comes back at me.


For me, whatever age or size I’ve been, I have rather liked myself. The shell is not the thing at all.


I never do any television without chocolate. That’s my motto and I live by it. Quite often I write the scripts and I make sure there are chocolate scenes. Actually I’m a bit of a chocolate tart and will eat anything. It’s amazing I’m so slim.


I’m constantly astounded by how amazing women are. And as we go through all these different stages of life as long as you share them with others and say, ‘Well, this is bloody weird’, you can get through everything.


Any people whose lives are about the way they look, whether it’s fat or thin, are in a dangerous area.
