Some of the facts about her mother that people might not know

Her mother demanded an agent for her by the age of three. 

Her mother said she doesn’t remember why she demanded an agent at such a young age, but since agents were ringing in the house, she didn’t understand why. 

She got an agent when she was six years old. 

But there is a story behind how she got an agent. According to her, she was diagnosed with dyslexia when she was six years old. 

Her teacher at the time said to her parents that they needed a carrot to dangle in front of her to make her read and asked them what does she want, and her parents replied, “she wants an agent.” 

So that was how she got an agent.

She received an OBE award from Prince Charles in 2018 for her partnership with WaterAid and Oxfam charities, as well as her contribution to the arts. 

While appearing on “The Late Show with Stephen Cohen,” she recalled getting a letter that looked terrifying with stamps of the Home office everywhere which was part of the British government, and she thought the letter she got might be because she might have messed up with the tax. 

She said she didn’t open it for two days and hid it from her husband as well. When she finally mustered the courage to open it, she found it was a prize.

She had a breakdown by the age of 22 because of increasing fame. In an interview, she said that being in a sudden limelight when you are still trying to figure things out can be very complex. 

Also, it was difficult for her to handle extreme paparazzi. There was never a day when she was not followed by 20 guys. 

There was also a 24/7 stalking situation. The pressure of everything got too much for her. So, she took some time off. She went traveling for about a year. 

According to her, she was very lucky that she had the money to be able to get help. 

She also had a career where she could step away and could step back, and also that she has a family who was the solid rock behind her.
