She opens up in an interview for the magazine about ‘hiding under a hat during her first meeting with Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance, why singing in her latest film, Begin Again, was such agony, and why she wouldn’t let a teenage daughter take up acting.’- elleuk.com
‘Oh, 100%, I’d absolutely tell her not to. I would 150 million trillion per cent be totally discouraging. Teenage years should be done privately. You should be going out and getting unbelievably drunk, getting into ridiculous situations, making mistakes. That’s what that time of life is about and we should do that privately. Saying that, I don’t regret it – I wouldn’t do my life any differently, but having lived through it…There was a very long time when [interviewers] were all: “Well you’re a sh*t actress and you’re anorexic and people hate you” which, for a teenager is a very strange thing.’
