Her house was used for recording The Cure's "Wild Mood Swings".

She turned down the role of Natalie Jastrow Henry in "War and Remembrance" (1988) (mini) three times before finally accepting it.
Had recently married her first husband, Michael Attenborough when she filmed Live and Let Die (1973). While filming it, she visited a psychic who predicted that she would be married three more times. Though the thought was a shock to her at the time, it proved to be eerily accurate.
"You have to count on living every single day in a way you believe will make you feel good about your life - so that if it were over tomorrow, you'd be content with yourself."
"I had ordered long legs, but they never arrived. My eyes are weird too, one is gray and the other is green. I have a crooked smile and my nose looks like a ski slope. No, I would not win a Miss contest." - about her looks.
After I had my first child, I stopped breastfeeding early because I had been told that there was a possibility that I might star in "The Thorn Birds" (1983) (mini), which I wanted more than life itself. I went to do the screen test and everything went great until we [Richard Chamberlain and I] did the love scene. I had stopped feeding for three weeks and unexpectedly my milk came in! I lifted myself up in my pink 1930s negligee, and it's a wet T-shirt contest! I looked up and it was just terrible. There was a big puddle of white milk all over his bare chest. I mean a puddle. This was a serious incident. His reaction was not good. You just say, "What can you do?"
