On her attempt to make the first move with Liev:
“It was a lot more ballsy than I would ever normally be. Normally I want a guy to make the first move, and he wasn”t. Then he got up to say he was leaving and I was like, “Oh, s***. Probably another couple years are going to pass by. I was wildly attracted to him and his work, so I said something cheeky as he was about to walk out. I said, “Don”t you want my digits Because I couldn”t possibly say, “Would you like my phone number” It made him laugh. He texted me five minutes later saying, “Would you like to go for a drink now” And I said, “No, I”ll meet you for breakfast tomorrow.””
On her acting at age 45:
“Women in their 40s have gone through quite a few different things, and so the roles are going to reflect that. People say, “Oh, it”s done by 40,” and now everyone knows it”s not. I actually feel like the roles are a lot more interesting.”
On her role as Princess Diana:
“I thought, Everyone”s going to jump to these comparisons: She”s not tall enough. She hasn”t got the nose. She hasn”t got the voice. I thought, “It”s not going to work, it”s too scary. So I said no. But for some reason, I didn”t feel completely at peace with that decision. It was nerve-wrecking every step of the way until I was there, and then it was like, “Okay, now I”m just doing it.”
