Anne indicated she has not found it easy to fall in love.

I think the problem is I find it really difficult to fall in love with real people.

She said: “I think the problem is I find it really difficult to fall in love with real people. I’ve thought: am I in love with this guy? And then we kind of get together and I think: damn it, no, oh dear.”

Anne added: “I have never thought of myself as a feminist. People say why and I say: ‘I don’t really like women very much; that’s the brutal truth.'”

As part of the same interview, Anne also admitted that, as a child, she thought she would never know how to function as an adult.

She explained that in her youth she imagined she would live with her mother until she passes away and then became “a bag lady”.
