My Secret Life: Sharon Osbourne, 59, TV presenter
'I still play pranks'
My parents were... horrible. They weren't really parents – they were professionals that had children.
When I was a child I wanted to be... a ballet dancer. I took lessons.
If I could change one thing about myself... I've definitely wanted to be taller all my life.
You wouldn't know it but I am very good at... dialects, accents. I've always done it, as a kid and as an adult – pranks on the phone, pretending it's not me...
You may not know it but I'm no good at... saving.
I wish I had never worn... a blue denim skirt with a blue denim shirt. It was hideous – a very flared skirt, very long.
What I see when I look in the mirror... Age. Time.
My favourite item of clothing... A cashmere shawl – it's like my comfort blanket.
It's not fashionable but I like... I've got a lot of jewellery and I just like to wear a lot at the same time – my girls are always saying, "Mummy! Take it off!".
I drive... In England I have a Mini, in America I have a Range Rover.
My house is... My English house is Victorian, very traditional, and then my house in LA is a ranch – very American.
My favourite work of art... I have a painting of a fairy, and Ozzy and I always have her in our bedroom wherever we are in the world. You look at her and just dream because she's so beautiful. Ozzy absolutely loves her, too.
My favourite building... The Eiffel Tower in Paris.
A book that changed me... Anything by Dickens – I adore his books.
Movie heaven... I love old-time blockbusters, Titanic, Dr Zhivago, and I'm addicted to Downton Abbey on TV.
The last album I bought... was The Black Keys. It's a great album.
My greatest regret... Not learning another language – but it's never too late.
My secret crush... Probably Denzel Washington. That's a shocker, right?
My real-life villain... People in politics. I can't stand them! They're all such terrible hypocrites.
The person who really makes me laugh... My husband – he's got the best sense of humour ever.
The last time I cried... Yesterday. I was with my eldest girl and we were just talking about something in her career which made me cry.
What's the point? You know, I've been trying to figure it out – I don't understand any of it. I am trying, believe me.
My life in six words... A lucky son of a bitch.
