I had a whole thought process behind it. Did I give it a lot of thought? No. I said to the crew that ‘ Listen, I’m facing the camera. I’m going to do it for the first time. You guys want to film it?’ They took advantage of the opportunity. What’s there to hide? Sometimes I look at women and I think ‘Oh my god, for her age, she looks really good.
