* How she prepared for her role in [[BridgetJones Bridget Jones's Diary]]: she gained about 20-30 lbs. to portray a woman of normal weight, she worked on a very convincing English accent, she lived in a London apartment and worked at a publishing house under an assumed name for a year. All for the role, which nominated her for an Oscar.
* Her response to a [[IdiotBall shocked audience after appearing at a 2014 event where she looked much more different than in her heyday]], she replies she's quite content with her life and that she's glad she looks different since she feels more comfortable in her skin than when she was younger.
