About whether or not she's looking forward to doing her own driving lessons (2006): " I'm actually really not! (laughs) I mean, I just have such a bad feeling about me and driving, I just don't think I'm going to be very good at all. But I've got a few years to go until I'm 17 before I can apply for my driving license so I got a little while to go yet... But I suppose the idea of a nice car kind of attracts me. I just love Rupert's car, he has a nice amazing black Mini and it's gorgeous. "
