W   You’ve met Kylie? Really? Kylie Minogue?

W   Yeah? wh-what’s she like?

M    Oh, she’s a really great dancer.

W   But, what’s she like as a person?

M    Oh, oh, she’s lovely. She’s so down-to-earth, and she works so hard. She’s one of these people who really knows what she wants, at the same time, she can have a good laugh too. But when it’s time to work, you have to work, but that’s OK.

W   Hmm, that’s interesting. And do you see her a lot?

G    Oh, that’s interesting.

R     Yeah. She seemed very confident and controlled, but in some ways she isn’t. I mean, OK, she’s famous for her television work, you know, Friends, but she really wants to do well in films.

G    Really?

R     Yeah, anyway, she’s a lovely person.

G    Have you seen her again?

R     No, unfortunately.
