Inside the issue, the 28-year-old talks about growing out of the ingenue phase she clearly loathed and how she was given sexual labels with which she felt uncomfortable early in her career.
On the lazy pigeonholing: “I think any woman who is curvy and wears a gown to an event is, like, super-sexualised. I mean, at the time I was 18, 19. I was young. I’ve always been curvy. It runs in the family. Throw on an evening frock and it’s like all of a sudden you have boobs and everyone is like: bombshell! Instantly it was: The new Marilyn.”
On having no interest in marriage nor kids right now: “It’s not important to me. It has no relevance to me right now. I’m not having kids any time soon, I’m in a nice relationship. I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually. But it is different. It’s hard to put into words. To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn’t mean you have to be married. [I] never [think about marriage]. Is that weird?”
On what she looks for in a partner: “For me, most importantly, I look for a partner who is creative. I like people that have a colourful way of looking at things, that are inspiring and like art, music and film. [Although, relationships with actors are] monotonous.’”
On approaching 30-years-old: “I feel like I’ve been transitioning from young woman into womanhood for a very long time. Now as I approach 30, with the last few years behind me, I feel like growing pains are behind me. It’s just nice to feel happy.” – via Elle UK Magazine.
