In a way, it’s like the photographer always has his vision of me. The pictures that I’m known for are not really my image, they’re always the photographer’s vision of me. I can look a hundred different ways, but what people see of me in pictures is not really my image.
Once I was walking from The Mercer Hotel in New York down the street, and this woman paparazzo who was following me fell over a fire hydrant and her whole tooth went through her lip. I leant over her, saying, “Are you all right?” and she was still taking pictures. I was, “You know what? You are sick in the head.”
I guess I’m adaptable. You know, I turn up at work and [photographers] can kind of do what they want with me, really.
