I like dressing up in weird clothes.
00:06
I liked dressing up as like a dinosaur or a, you know,
00:09
Batman.
00:10
I was such a tomboy.
00:12
I wanted my own Disney Channel show.
00:14
I wanted to be like, you know,
00:15
Hannah Montana or something, yeah.
00:18
Funny.
00:19
It took me a long time to start wearing clothes.
00:21
I used to just love being naked.
00:22
My parents would have to dress me
00:23
cuz I'd run around the supermarket
00:24
to take off all my clothes and start running around.
00:27
It was fun.
00:28
It was freedom, liberation.
00:30
We have a pretty nudist family.
00:31
I remember going to like nude beaches
00:34
a lot when I was younger.
00:35
I found that really weird actually, now, looking back on it.
00:37
Why do people,
00:38
why do men on nudist beaches
00:40
always have the smallest penises?
00:41
I just remember doing sports day one day
00:43
and my mom, um,
00:45
my mom came up to me and was like,
00:45
we're going to a photoshoot.
00:47
I was like, what?
00:48
I also remember doing like a weird fashion show
00:50
when I was really young.
00:51
I don't know what for.
00:52
It took me so long to learn how to walk in high heels,
00:54
it was a joke.
00:56
And when you first start walking,
00:58
you walk like you've never had sex.
01:00
And then I remember someone told me,
01:01
and I couldn't remember who it was, they were like,
01:02
walk like you're having sex, walk like you're having a lot,
01:05
like had a lot of sex or whatever.
01:07
I always think I'm gonna fall over.
01:09
It's like my head is trying to mess myself up on the catwalk
01:11
because I'm going,
01:12
you're gonna fall, you're gonna fall, you're gonna fall,
01:13
and I'm walking like, mmm.
01:15
I always fall in rehearsals to make sure
01:16
I don't fall in the real thing.
01:18
It works.
01:19
I like going on a movie and no one really knowing me
01:21
and then I could just be whoever I wanna be,
01:22
if I wanted, you know?
01:24
Whoo!
01:25
I literally never go to LA
01:27
and if I do it's for like one day.
01:28
It sucks.
01:29
I love it, it's the sun that I love,
01:31
but after fashion week and I have really bad psoriasis,
01:34
covered in those red scabs and I went to LA for a week,
01:36
and wrote music, and it went away.
01:38
It all disappeared.
01:40
I want to start something where people have psoriasis
01:42
can talk to each other about it
01:43
because it's a really, it really affects your confidence.
01:47
People in Milan would used to, like,
01:50
look at me like I was a leper and put on gloves
01:51
and not want to touch me.
01:53
I'm a very quick changer now.
01:54
I could be naked in one minute.
01:55
One second.
01:57
Joking!
01:58
That's next time, Lynn.
01:59
I have twelve there, which is my lucky number,
02:02
so I think I should probably stop.
02:04
Made in England.
02:05
So I think this one is my favorite.
02:07
I've never met the Queen,
02:08
but if I did, I'd have a lot of questions to ask her.
02:11
I really want to know where she buys her underwear.
02:13
Do you think she goes to Agent Provocateur?
02:15
Do you have royal underwear?
02:17
If I ever went to Buckingham Palace,
02:18
I'd always say I wanted, I wanted like a, something to,
02:21
like a little souvenir.
02:23
Chip something off the wall.
02:25
This is from Buckingham Palace.
02:27
Woo!
02:27
A wall chipping.
02:29
Or like loo paper.
02:29
What toilet paper do they use in Buckingham Palace?
02:33
It's gotta be good.
02:34
Oh my God, I love therapy.
02:36
Until I went to this therapy where they like put you under,
02:38
in a trance,
02:39
and they ask you questions when you're asleep.
02:42
It did work.
02:42
Cuz I never cried, I honestly never cried,
02:45
and I did this thing, and like,
02:47
I remember something happen
02:48
and it felt like my chest had been ripped open,
02:51
and I was the biggest mess for like days and days.
02:54
I'm not good at contacting that emotional place,
02:56
but when I do, it's like fucking hell.
02:59
I literally am like,
03:00
(imitates crying)
03:02
like it's horrible.
03:03
I'm not a pretty crier.
03:03
I don't like anyone to be there.
03:05
Oh, who do I not have a crush on in the movies?
03:08
They're all so frickin dishy.
03:09
Angelina Jolie, man.
03:11
Ughhh.
03:12
Pfff she's friggin gorgeous.
03:13
I love Girl, Interrupted.
03:15
Also, Brad Pitt in Fight Club.
03:16
Oh my God, I have a total couple crush on Brad and Angie.
03:19
It's all steamy in here now.
03:21
Don't. My mind.
03:22
My mind's gone crazy, what are you doing to it?
03:25
I have a female version of a boner.
03:27
What's it called?
03:28
I don't know.
