Naga explained: “The one thing I have learnt from my husband is he said, ‘Look you walk into a room, and there are a hundred people, there is no way a hundred people are going to like you’.
“I’ve never expected people to like me, I’m a grower, most of my friends would probably say, ‘Yeah I wasn’t sure at first’ and they’re intensely loyal friends now.
“I don’t expect people to like me, I don’t care if people don’t like me,” she added.
Annie Emerson agreed: “ I like that attitude, I genuinely do, I think I should embrace it, even more, ultimately you would prefer someone to not like you to begin with and then when they get to know you like you rather than the other way around.”
