People say, ‘Where do you live?’ and I say that theoretically, I live in London, but basically that’s just where I go to change my suitcase. Otherwise, I’m always flying somewhere.

I looked for acting classes in Paris just to do something different than modeling. And then one day I just thought, ‘Okay, that’s enough, I have to start doing something.’ I went to the acting agency and I just told them I wanted to act and asked them if they would give me a chance, and they did.

I think I’ll be single my whole life. It’s entirely possible I’m going to end up alone. Because I don’t want to make any sacrifices for my own development and achieving what I want to achieve, and I don’t want a family to get in the way of that.
Why marry? If you’re not married, you just leave each other and it’s cool. Who needs the paper? To me it means nothing.
I don’t like the mentality that comes with rich Russian men. Because they have money, they think they can buy a woman – and they do.
I always listen to all kinds of different music from different years. I listen to the contemporary, but once in a while into eighties, you know just for fun, and sometimes classical too. So I have this big mix on my i-pod… Amy Winehouse, Gwen Stefani, OutKast, Jay-Z. I listen to trance, pop, everything. It really depends on my mood.
I did not have a father. It was my mom who chose to be alone. She felt that she would be better off by herself with me after I was born.
I believe in miracles. At the age of 13, I was on holiday in Moscow with my mother. It was the only trip I took in my whole childhood. We stepped off a metro train and were approached by a talent scout who told me that she wanted to sign me to her modeling agency.
If a man can make me laugh and stimulate me intellectually, then I wouldn’t mind if he was 4 ft. 8 in. with a huge belly. The only thing that would put me off is bad breath – but even that can be fixed. A bad personality isn’t so easy to fix.
I wasn’t, like, this top model; I was quietly doing my work, and when I became an actress, people started doing research, and everybody found out. People dug out photos, and suddenly people became interested – but no one was interested in my photos when I was a model.
Hollywood always represents this big dream and fairy tale in people’s minds, but to me, it’s just hard work. Of course, we play fairy tale on the red carpet. It’s all Cinderella. But when the clock strikes midnight, I turn into a gray mouse and I go home, and I take my dress off and it’s over. That’s Hollywood.
To tell you the truth, I don’t really follow what men wear. Men’s fashion is much simpler than women’s. It doesn’t change as much.
I grew up in the Ukraine and then I went to Paris in 1996. I went there because there was a modeling agency that invited me there to work so I thought, ‘Sure.’
Modeling isn’t really a tough job. Acting is much harder: so much prep and changing your look and mannerisms. It’s a more difficult lifestyle being a model. I traveled all the time. Although, now I wonder, because I travel all the time for acting, too. So they both have their difficulties.
What’s interesting is to be sexy but not know it. You’ll be in a restaurant, and some girls will walk in and you can tell that they really want to be sexy. It’s written on their faces because that’s all they want to show. There’s a fear that one might not look further.
