The shoot’s a little over-styled and try-hard, but it’s nice that she’s not pigeonholed with the “English rose in Spring” thing among pastels and floral patterns. She’s working her angles and androgyny. And it’d work, were it toned down a little (think Jennifer Lopez in V Magazine).
On how an actor’s personal life affects people’s enjoyment of their movies: “I hate knowing too much when I’m going to the cinema. I don’t want to know that the actor has just gone through a divorce. I don’t want to know that the person is an alcoholic.”
On whether people separate her celebrity from her acting: “I think I’d be quite surprised if they could. I know with A Dangerous Method people liked the spanking an awful lot. But I’m not quite sure. It’s weird, though, with the spanking. When we were in Venice, I didn’t get asked about it once. But in England, it was pretty much the only thing I got asked about. I’m not quite sure what that says about the English.” – via Interview Magazine.
