A lot of period dramas can appear quite arch to most people, stuffy.
Americans are a lot more open, of course. There's something more declamatory in the way you express emotions. It's a stereotype but it's true. British people can appear repressed in expressing emotions. Not very good at self-evaluating, or affirming situations, touching, anything like that.
I find it quite hard to sum up my relationship in a sound bite. I feel that it trivializes it for other people's pleasure. It's an adventure.
I think it is nice for people to appreciate a slow-burning, beautiful story that makes you feel good when it is over.
I'm not much of a crier but it is mildly soul-destroying and exposing to do something physical that you are terrible at in front of other people.
If you're very open to watching the world go by, with people's different tics, you absorb it all without realizing it and find ways to put something into your character. I'm not sure I'm always aware I'm mimicking someone.
People just want to know something, anything. It's all the stuff you never want to talk about, the private stuff.
People quit on jobs. They quit on marriages. They quit on school. There's an immediacy of this day and age that doesn't lend itself to being committed to anything.
When you're in love, you're so happy that you want to tell people about it. But now I have to censor myself. You need to protect the happiness you have.
So I don't really have much rivalry, or if there is any, I don't really know anything about it. Because, you know, I'm not around girls like that. The friends I have in the business, I'm always really happy for them. I think we're always happy for each other. That sounds crap, but it's true.
The business is all about gush and hype. You never have a bad meeting in L.A.
There is absolutely, 100 percent, a light at the end of the tunnel for anyone who stutters.
I think for me the job always has to be the right thing at the right time.
I want to find something really wonderful to do next and take my time to search through the dearth of great material, especially for women.
I had to learn to dance for 'The Adjustment Bureau' and it was nearly impossible. I turned up with my knees knocking in my leotard and went home and cried my eyes out.
