In an interview with the BBC she said:I want to live my life. I want to get in my husband’s truck and drive around, hopefully with the kids somewhere near us.

The star said that “she always liked it” the small lump on her nose and mentioned that the surgery “it was too big a risk. And who knew what it could do to my voice? A doctor once told me I had a deviated septum… maybe that’s why I sound like that».

The star recalled the offending Time cover in 1964, in which, among other things, she was called a “hound” – saying that “she is still hurt by the insults».
“I guess when you become famous, you become public property. You are an object to be examined, photographed, analyzed… and half the time I don’t recognize the person they are portraying. I’ve never gotten used to it and try to avoid reading anything about myself».
