Actress Anna Friel feels fresh as a Daisy after a break in Malaysia

Posted by Dean Piper On February 13th, 2010

After her long stint on the West End playing the lead role in Breakfast at Tiffany’s I’m glad to hear Anna Friel’s finally had some rest and recovery with her family. The star’s just returned from a wonderful holiday in Malaysia with daughter Gracie and partner David Thewlis. Speaking at the launch of the new Vue cinemas at London’s Westfield Centre Anna told me: “I was there for two weeks and it was amazing. It was nice to lay back in the sea swimming and I was totally safe from any paps. The only thing I got chased by were monkeys! I had no make-up and my hair scrapped back. Gracie learnt to swim and I did yoga at breakfast and swam a kilometre a day. I did it every single day without fail and it was an Olympic-size pool. It was great perfecting my breaststroke.”
And it sounds like after a few years of being in LA for Pushing Daisies and back-to-back work ventures, Anna’s finally ready to put family life first. She added: “I’m not going to allow it to be another three years until I get away again. It was hard because there were days where I didn’t get to see Gracie even though I did the best I could. She would be at school and then by the time I had got back she would have been in bed. David was on Harry Potter so I promised, promised her that as soon as we were finished we were going to have a big family holiday. So we did!”

    Anurag Basu says Kites is the metaphor of the film. Kites fly against the wind and not with it, stronger the wind blows, higher the kites fly, know what more he said http://tinyurl.com/KitesFilm
