"I remember so clearly, in the early days, if I had to do a piece of press, they’d phone for me and say, ‘Oh, we’re going to bring hair and makeup, it’ll take about five hours.’ And I said, ‘Well, if it was Ian McEwan, would it take about five hours? Would there be hair and makeup? Cause if that’s not the case, then don’t bring the hair and makeup.’"
