I use ‘darling' a lot. My mother calls me darling. I call my friends darling. It's almost so old-fashioned it has come around again. It's sweet, personal, loving and affectionate. It's a term you can use for anyone — it's not just for your lover or your child, you can use it for everybody. And it's a little showbiz.
The reason I wanted to do it was because of how conservative America is. So it's great when television shows say, 'I'm sorry, but we can't discuss this,' and I'm like, 'Why not? It's my name!'
