I think things are funny when the character is taking it totally seriously.
I have absolutely no empathy for camels. I didn’t care for being abused in the Middle East by those horrible horrible horrible creatures. They don’t like people. It’s not at all like the relationship between horses and humans.
I don’t think balance is something you get from someone else it’s something women have to find from within. For me finding balance is still a work in progress.
I don’t know anything about science.
I don’t believe your soul mate has to share your politics.
Because I think in order to get famous you have to be known for something. Like ‘You’re the romantic comedy girl’ or ‘You’re the Oscar-winning whatever girl.’
As Ralph’s character begins to discover the political thriller aspect of the film he falls deeper in love with his wife so the two run together. That’s the beauty of this film. It has fast pace and excitement but it also has heart and soul.
As an actress it’s part of your job to be able to imagine just about anything – even if it’s not within your personal experience.
I moved to New York last year and I love it. It’s a huge change and I’ve always wanted to spend time there. It’s like a more intense London and everything’s up a few notches. The lights are brighter the pace is faster and the food’s better.
I was advised by an American agent when I was about 19 to change my surname.
I don’t like travelling. Which is ridiculous. And it’s not because I’m afraid of dying on the plane or anything. I just like to stay at home.
My real fantasy if I was to drop out would be to live in a mobile home and be a hippie and drive around festivals and have millions of children – children with dreadlocks and nose rings – and play the flute.
