I had nearly finished school because I was making effort not that bad on that. But there was a law in Germany after the war. You could not make your final examination before 18 so lots of people who were late because of the way had to do it first.
But if I have a lot of imagination I could tell myself whatever I wanted you know. I handle myself quite well. I'm kind of fascist with myself you know. There's no discussion. There is an order. You follow it.
There are less than 1 per cent of anorexic girls but there more than 30 per cent of girls in France - I don't know about England - that are much much overweight. And it is much more dangerous and very bad for the health.
I like today and perhaps a little future still but the past is really something I'm not interested in. So as far as I'm concerned I like only the past of things and people I don't know. When I know I don't care because I knew how it was.
It's only I have seen enough of it and the funny thing is now I know that I'm skinny because I know there are even smaller clothes in the store. I think I'm big when I was big I never thought about it.
When I was a child I asked my mother what homosexuality was about and she said - and this was 100 years ago in Germany and she was very open-minded - 'It's like hair color. It's nothing. Some people are blond and some people have dark hair. It's not a subject.' This was a very healthy attitude.
