Tilda Swinton feels "privileged" to live in Scotland
The `We Need to Talk About Kevin` actress was born in London but has Scottish roots and is pleased she and her family have decided to settle in the country.
Tilda - who has 13-year-old twins, Honor and Xavier with John Byrne and lives with artist Sandro Kopp - said: "I`m a lucky Scot. I was brought up away from Scotland and was only ever there, once a year, in holiday capacity. So for me, choosing to live in Scotland is a choice for the perennial vacation. I feel very privileged to be back in the place I feel most comfortable. I`m still luxuriating in that. And I`ve lived there consistently since my children were born. Which was 13 years ago."
Tilda, 50, says she never felt comfortable living in England as it`s never really been her home.
She told Vogue magazine: "In England, I always feel like an exile. I don`t really know how England works. Living in England always felt a little bit odd to me, a little disingenuous. But Scotland is truly my home."
