On being asked to describe her life:
"Joyful and peaceful. I want to see friends more and travel more. I say that every year, but this year, I’m going to do it!”

On what makes her feel old:
“You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are twentysomething, or the new crop of actresses and think, ‘Aren’t we kind of the same age?’ [Jennifer is 43.] You lose perspective. Or being offered the part of a woman with a 17-year-old child. It’s like, ‘I’m not old enough to have a 17-year-old!’ Then you realise, well, yeah, you are."

On her red carpet secrets:
“I love Christopher Bailey for Burberry. And Tom Ford. I have his skirts, jackets and shoes, but I don’t know how to walk in them. I’ve tried! I need to lop off a little of the heel. They require serious strength. On the red carpet, it’s time for me to start doing something different. I play it very safe, because I just want to be comfortable. If I could wear a jersey tank that went down to the floor, I would.”

On her secret to looking so good:
"I’ve used Neutrogena’s Facial Cleansing Bar since I was a teen. I also like Dr Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream, which I mix with sun block and Angels Makeup’s collagen patches, which my make-up artist Angela Levin designed. You put them under your eyes and they moisturise the skin. A nice morning pick-me-up.”
