- I was just sixteen and Visconti and the team took me to a gay nightclub. Almost all the crew were gay. The waiters at the club made me feel very uncomfortable. They looked at me uncompromisingly as if I was a nice meaty dish. I knew I couldn't react. It would have been social suicide. But it was the first of many such encounters.
- My career is one of the few that started at the absolute top and then worked its way down. That was lonely.
- Quoted in Matt Seaton, "I feel used," The Guardian (2003-10-16)
