I do know that the key to anything good is feeling relaxed and free. That’s the main thing that you can offer yourself as an actor.
Anger is not an accepted thing for women. And, you know, I do get angry. I feel it’s a very honest emotion.
Looking back, I just think I was a really average sort of girl.
I’ve got friends who are pyrotechnics who do big fire shows, so I’m really fascinated by that.
I think I was lucky in that I wasn’t one of those girls who are told they are pretty the whole time. I never got that. Nor did I ever obsess about my looks as a teenager.
It is interesting to break all the rules. I’m not married, I have a baby, and it feels infinitely more right.
There are certainly contemporaries that I admire, like Emily Blunt. I think she is amazing.
As a woman, you feel that you shouldn’t want to better yourself against others. Ambition has become such an ugly word, hasn’t it?
Feminism will never reach the next stage until women stop competing with each other on the level of looks.
If I see any sort of injustice, I can fight like a dog. I’m not frightened to be outspoken and I can get very angry. I think expressing anger is not something that’s considered very feminine… or British! If I saw someone slandered in the press… libel is something I really loathe. So, I probably would speak out about that, whether it was about myself or someone else.
