I just get so fed up with seeing the same things written about me. If I see the words 'ice queen' attached to me I feel like banging my head against the wall. There's this perception that I can only be in a film if I have a glass of champagne in my hand and a stately home in the background.
So many people release albums before Christmas and they get lost in the Christmas rush.
I made a Christmas album a couple of years ago and just put it out on my Web site. It kind of smacked of this flavor. All of the reviews said it was Western swing even when it was Christmas standards.
A Christmas Carol is such a fool-proof story you can't louse it up.
I think the people who are making Christmas-themed movies today feel that people are more cynical about Christmas. There's more of an edge.
It always depresses me when people moan about how commercial Christmas is. I love everything about it. The tradition of having this great big feast slap bang in the middle of winter is an essential thing to look forward to at the end of the year.
It's fun when you start a movie because it's kind of like you get to go Christmas shopping... you get to make your wish list and you start thinking about what each character needs.
'The war in Iraq - if Osama was a Christian - it's the Christmas present he never would have expected.
It is never too late to get into tennis! While I started playing at the age of 8 when my parents gave me a tennis racquet for Christmas tennis is a lifelong sport that can be enjoyed by people of almost any age. It's also something you never forget once you learn.
I didn't know the full dimensions of forever but I knew it was longer than waiting for Christmas to come.
I stone got crazy when I saw somebody run down them strings with a bottleneck. My eyes lit up like a Christmas tree and I said that I had to learn.
In the spring of 1994 I decided not to seek reelection to the Senate. I had made the decision 12 years earlier Christmas Day of 1982 just after I had been first elected to a full term that I would do the best I could for a limited time.
I'm a disorganized mess. My purse is gross: I once found a shoulder pad string cheese and a Christmas ornament in it!
In 1934 the American Jewish charities offered to find homes for 300 German refugee children. We were on the SS Washington bound for New York Christmas 1934.
I got a guitar when I was about 14 for a Christmas present and went from there.
It will be a hard game if you think about winning a championship. We need to think about our own game at the moment and focus on getting good results especially over the Christmas period.
A friend gave me a CD of the 'Pathetique' Symphony as a Christmas present. I went home and I put on the CD expecting to listen to Tchaikovsky. But it started 'ta ta ta taaa.' It was too long for me. I didn't understand it at first but then I fell in love in love in love.

I was talking to one of my aunties at Christmas and she said she didn't think it was ever in my nature to go against the grain that I was always a good boy. I think she was right - I did always want to be good.
I'd like to do a Christmas album. I've never done a Christmas album.
A lot of sequins for New Year's! Red green white - I fail at all of that because I'm always in black. But for Christmas I do love wearing cute dresses with tights and a pair of boots.
Fantastic! Right in the middle of that long stretch between Christmas and Spring Break your coats are getting dirty everything's dark dingy - what a great time for a movie!
