 I went to see an autopsy at a coroner’s office. I had no problem with it. When you first look at the body, your brain makes the association, ‘He looks like a friend of mine’. But once they started cutting, I wanted to know where everything was, how it worked, how it connected. I held the brain in my hands. It was heavy and cold. But I did have one issue. When you cut open the body, the intestines spill out, and it looks like sausage. So I’m not sure that I can ever eat foie gras or turkey sausage again.

 Seven years ago, I had never heard of Botox. My dermatologist was saying, ‘You should try it.’ He injected my forehead, hit a nerve, and created a huge hematoma. The nerve has been dead ever since. It affected the muscle in my right eye, so my eye has started to droop a little bit.

 I won’t do it, no. My hat’s off to Jamie Lee Curtis. She’s so smart, and she doesn’t dye her hair or anything. And Meryl Streep still looks like herself. Diane Keaton, too. I think the really great actresses don’t worry about that kind of thing. When I was a teenager and in my twenties, I had eating issues. I binged. I starved. I was one step from anorexia — a piece of toast and an apple would be all I would eat in a day.

 Your hormones change. So much of our lives is driven by hormones - sexual, procreative hormones. Believe me, I'm still very sexual, but I'm sexual in a much more energetic, spiritual sense, which is deeper and more fun. I had times with people where it (s*x) was ego-driven or where you just wanted to have an or***m. It was like, 'Let's get to the endgame.'

 Great s*x means it can go on for hours - and I'm not talking, like, (rock star) Sting...You take a break. You eat something. You talk, you laugh, you hang out. It's ongoing and it's sexy, and your whole life can be like that. Of course, you end up having a lot of or***ms, which is a bonus.
