My daughter Mickey is an actress, and I tell her women need to make their own films; they should always be looking for stories to develop themselves and go to acting class - not that she needs much prompting in that!
Sting and I have six kids between us. A lot of members of our family have ADHD and dyslexia.
I gave birth to our daughter Coco in Pisa, and it was a wonderful time in all our lives.
I was in 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,' and I like my bad boy movie movies.
I like producing, but I don't love it. I love acting. I got into producing because I had a bad time in 1989 when no work was coming in.
At the age of two-and-a-half, I was run down by a truck. I had gone rogue in the house while my mother was bathing my sister. I went outside and met a friend who promised me candy. Afterward, I walked back by myself across the road where I fell down in the street. A 15-year-old boy delivering bread struck me down.
Every teenager feels like a freak. It's part of being a teenager, part of the individuation from child to adult - those teenage years are who am I? What am I? Where am I going?
In a way, bullying is an ordinary evil. It's hugely prevalent, all too often ignored - and being ignored, it is therefore condoned.
Your big movie stars who've been in blockbusters generating a lot of dollars are looking for the meatier, substantive roles that they think will make the awards season.
We should be looking at the bigger picture. It's all very well going around driving our Priuses, but we have to look to our governments to make us less reliant on oil.
I'd never thought of directing as an option for me. I don't know why, because I'm incredibly bossy. I was surprised how collaborative it is. As the producer, you have to get the money and schedule on time, and that's not what I do best.
I've never really had a sense that I am just Mrs. Sting. Indeed, I am Mrs. Sting and very proud and very happy that I am still Mrs. Sting, as opposed to Mrs. ex-Sting. But I'm a very busy person, so I've always done things and got on with my life.
Yoga is the best holistic workout and body toner there is. It sorts out a chaotic mind and calms the body - it is how I de-stress - or stop myself getting stressed in the first place.
I like green juices in the morning, made from things such as kale, and cucumber and peppers; then in the afternoon, when the blood sugar goes down, I'll make a carrot, apple, and ginger juice.
I've had chronically bad stomach aches since I was a child.
When I first met Clint Eastwood, I bobbed him a curtsy. I still cringe about that to this day.
I have a huge belief in the importance of bees, not just for their honey, which is a healing and delicious food, but the necessity of bee colonies that are vital to the health of the planet.
I think David Cameron is really not very passionate about the environment. He said all the right things. I don't think he's come through with anything that's tangible.
Hollywood stops hiring their star leading ladies when they turn 40. It's very defeating.
I nearly drowned in the Xingu River in Brazil some years ago. When I was given my life back, I decided I wanted to make some changes, so I left acting to concentrate on producing films. I wanted to be in control of my own life.
