Personal Quotes (3)

I love actresses that aren't afraid to look ugly. People that do a variety of roles as well and aren't afraid to step out of that 'naturalistic' box.
There's a joke in my family that I'm going to make a career out of playing other people's younger selves, I played the younger Keira [Keira Knightley], I've played the younger Angelina [Angelina Jolie] and more recently the young Margot Robbie.
You can only really shoot a throw up scene of that scale once as it's a nightmare to reset! So I'd say projectile vomiting in a playground in front of 20 people covered head to toe in a plastic bin bag is probably one of my weirder experiences.
