My first language was shy. It's only by having been thrust into the limelight that I have learned to cope with my shyness.
My grandmother always came to my shows. She was always concerned about the way I dressed - even later on, when I was well known and I supported her.
The problem with me is, I guess, the way I express myself, you have to be with me 50 years before you can get a sense of what I'm talking about.
I'm so shy now I wear sunglasses everywhere I go.
Did you know I started out as a stand-up comic? People don't believe me when I tell them. That's how I saw myself, in comedy.
There has been a lot of self-doubt and unwelcome events in my life.
