Jerry Hall Quotes

1. My mother said it was simple to keep a man, you must be a maid in the living room, a cook in the kitchen and a whore in the bedroom. I said I'd hire the other two and take care of the bedroom bit.

2. Mick Jagger and I just really liked each other a lot. We talked all night. We had the same views on nuclear disarmament.

3. The more flesh you show, the higher up the ladder you go.

4. Mick was against it at first but he's ok now. She made $60 000 in one week - what can you say? (On daughter Elizabeth's modeling success)

6. I think if I weren't so beautiful, maybe, I'd have more character.

7. When I first met Mick he wore jeans and those Seventies ribbed, tight T-shirts, and I absolutely loved that look. Nobody looks better in jeans than Mick because he's got this amazing body with a very slim, long waist and a bit V-shaped chest and I thought that was just the cutest. That's when I fell in love with him. Then in the Eighties he started wearing trousers and badly cut tweed suits, big shirts in orange and brown. Ugh! Clothes that he wore for about 20 years. But now he's started wearing jeans again and he looks great - I saw him the other day and I thought: "thank God".

8. I never eat between meals and I don't eat junk food. I mostly stick to fish, vegetables and chicken. But I do love chocolate, coffee, red wine and cigarettes...

13. I will be studying Andy Warhol and I think we will also be learning about the Rolling Stones, which is something I think I've got a good head start at.

14. It's something I've always wanted to do, it's just for me.

15. We make love on it, our children scratch their names beneath... Then you bring other women while I am out of town. And I can always sense when a stranger has sat down.
