" Perhaps perfection is not what attracts us to others. I have always admired Kate because she goes against the grain and everyone loves her for it. When I was growing up ,a woman sitting with her legs spread and holding a cigarette was immediately labeled "easy".

At the end of the day I like the idea of a woman being like a man: strong, self-assured, equal.'
