I wanted to dismantle the bollocks that there’s a military structure to a gang, with a leader, second leader, the good looking one, first babe, second babe. It’s far more arbitrary than that and their values shouldn’t be romanticised. They aren’t something you want to sign up to.

Americans are so stiff when it comes to nudity. For me, I’ve always walked around the house naked. My husband, in real life, is like, ‘Babe, could you just put some clothes on! Keep the mystery alive!’
