#Quote
1[on Johnny Depp] Working with Johnny is incredible. He's one of the most talented actors of his generation and seeing him work and create the character is really extraordinary. He takes risks. He's not one of those actors who's like, "well, this is what my fans would like" or anything like that. He really pushes boundaries and that's an extraordinary thing for a young actress to see. I remember seeing him play Captain Jack for the first time and everybody went, "what is he doing?" But he was like, "this is the way I'm playing it!" I love the fact he creates. That's very inspirational. And as a person, he's lovely. I like him very much.
2[on Alan Turing, the focus of the film The Imitation Game (2014)] I was shocked that I didn't know more about him, and didn't know what he'd done and what happened to him. You can't right a wrong, but you can at least let people know what happened and what he did. He should, at the very least, be a British icon, and a gay icon - and his status isn't that at the moment.
3I'm not saying bad reviews or things like that don't hurt, because of course they do, and they're designed to and they should hurt. But also I can't take them too seriously. You're basically saying you don't like it when I pretend to be someone else? O.K., cool.
4[on plastic surgery] I look the way I look, I am not willing to cut my face up.
5[on live stage performing] I think actually that's why I enjoy theatre: It doesn't exist. It's not like film, which is stuck there forever. The show that you see tonight, whether it works or whether it doesn't work, nobody will ever see that again. Tomorrow will be completely different. And I find that incredibly romantic.
6If you are on social media and if you do put anything out in the public, you are opening yourself up now to a lot of criticism and a lot of people telling you they hate you.
7[on her technique for discouraging potential suitors] I've used the "stare straight ahead, don't make contact" one. That's always good. I'm a bit of an ice queen. I think I have quite a frightening exterior. So unless I'm soliciting, unless I'm up for it, I'm far too intimidating.
8[on her choice of roles] I'm more interested in the idea of somebody trying to fight against something. I like to explore people that I don't necessarily understand in situations that I don't necessarily understand. I don't think I've played anyone who's stupid and maybe I should - maybe that would be a challenge.
9I like being private. I haven't asked a lot of the actresses who I really admire, "How do you do it?" because I don't want to know. Maybe I'm childish in that way; I just don't want to know about your life.
10Hollywood has a really long way to go. I don't think that anybody can deny that, really, and I think as much as you are getting more women playing lead roles... they're still pretty few and far between.
11I think it's great that the discussions are finally being allowed to be had [about feminism], as opposed to anybody mentioning feminism and everybody going, "Oh, f***ing shut up." Somehow, it [feminism] became a dirty word. I thought it was really weird for a long time, and I think it's great that we're coming out of that.
12I 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.
13[on Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012)] The movie itself has comic moments, but it's about the end of the world, so obviously it has an apocalyptic feel to it that's not that comic, because everybody dies.
14There's always the moral question when you're playing real people. Is there any reason to do this, or are you simply exploiting somebody?
15People liked the spanking on A Dangerous Method (2011) an awful lot. In England, it was pretty much the only thing I got asked about.
16It comes to a point where you think, "What kind of film can I make that will allow me to live a proper life?". And those tentpole movies make it difficult. I became aware of how much I was complaining about it and you can't complain about the attention you're getting while still doing the films that invite the most attention. I do actually love blockbusters but that decision has a lot that comes with it that I'm not prepared to go with.
17They always pencil in my boobs. I was only angry when they were really, really droopy. For King Arthur (2004), for a poster, they gave me these really strange droopy boobs. I don't have boobs anyway but they digitally made them, and I thought, "Whoa if you're going to make me fantasy breasts, at least make them perky.".
18Anna Karenina did come home a couple of times. Because this was so stylized, we had to do it a million different ways, a million different times, through mirrors and twirling into something, so it meant everyone had to keep that level of emotion really high through different 14-hour days. So they did sometimes bleed over into one another.
19Without going into my own history with therapy, I think a lot of people seek therapy in England, whether it's therapy itself or something like acupuncture. To me, it's extraordinary when anybody recognizes in themselves that they need help and goes and seeks it. They have nothing but my utmost respect.
20[on being asked, for Anna Karenina (2012), to improvise - through movement - characters' relationships] I started off feeling incredibly stupid and going, "I don't know how to do this. What do you mean? Movement? I'm not a dancer." And he [Cherkaoui] said, "I don't care that you're not a dancer - just move in any way you want to within the story of these two people." That was incredibly liberating and something we used right through the film.
21[on yoga classes being recommended to assist in developing her characterization of Anna Karenina] Marathon training would have been slightly more helpful.
22[on being relieved that Mr. Cherkaoui never fixated on perfection] There was no point where he went, "Oh, I've got a bunch of actors who aren't dancers, so I'm going to simplify this." He was just, "That's what it is, so do it and do it better." Trying to tell this particular story in those two different ways was fascinating.
23I'm good enough to fake playing guitar. I'm not necessarily good enough to actually play the guitar. I've found something really interesting, I don't really like singing, it's not really one of my strong points. Dancing as well, I dance a lot in Anna Karenina (2012) and that's really not a strong point either. But I'm good enough to fake both of them so that's fine.
24The thing about great fictional characters from literature is that they completely speak to what makes people human.
25[on playing the title role in Anna Karenina (2012)] I think shame is a deeply difficult thing to live with, and I think she breaks her own moral code. What happens to your own perception of yourself when you break your own moral code? You always make yourself into the heroine, but equally you have self-hatred. She is the heroine and the anti-heroine. She is the perfect narcissist. She hates herself and she loves herself.
26[on picking her roles] I have to think, wow, I'm fascinated, but I also get to read this amazing book. For A Dangerous Method (2011), I didn't know anything about psychoanalysis, so to get to spend [months] reading as much as I could is one of the parts of the job I fucking love.
27When you do the Hollywood vibe on a big film you are shot from the perfect angle and you do tests to make sure, so they won't shoot you from this or that angle. With The Jacket (2005) you look shit and that's great. It didn't matter what angle they wanted to film from. I didn't have to look perfect. It's all about finding the truth in any situation and the situation in this wasn't a pretty one.
28The first thing I knew about Never Let Me Go (2010) was the script that came through my door. I thought it was a completely unique piece. I'd never read anything like it. I then started talking to friends and saying, "I might do this film. I think it's really interesting." And tons of them were saying, "This is my favorite book in the entire world." Actually, one said the most terrifying thing: "It sums up our generation." Which, now having read the book, I find it a bleak prospect indeed. But then when I said yes, I read the book, and I thought it was completely astonishing and, once again, completely unique. And it's very exciting to be part of something like that.
29[on performing certain scenes in A Dangerous Method (2011)] I phoned up David (David Cronenberg) and said, "I love you, I love your work, but I really don't think that I want to do this." And he said, "Well it would be a tragedy if you turned the role down because of that, so if necessary we can take them out." And I said, "No, because I understand why they are there." He said, "Well, look, I don't want it to be sexy, and I don't want it to be voyeuristic, I want it to be clinical." We talked for quite a long time about exactly what it was, and trying to understand it psychologically. Once we discussed I said, "All right, fine, as long as it's not sexy. That brutal horrible aspect is kept, and it isn't a sexy spanking scene.".
30I’m a total romantic — I love romantic films, but I don’t like being raped by sugar.
31I started acting when I was 7, but I asked for an agent when I was 3. I don't remember it, but that's what everybody says. I don't think I knew what agents did, but I thought it was kind of unfair that my mom and dad had one and I didn't.
32[on Never Let Me Go (2010)] I thought that Ruth was fascinating. For me, it was kind of a study of jealousy. She had a great path and I thought it would be an interesting thing to try and get into her head. I didn't like her. It's tricky playing people that you don't like and finding a way to empathize with them. It's challenging and very exciting for an actor.
33(on being famous) I think it broke something in me. I was told very early on that if I didn't go out to openings and parties and events I would be left alone. I didn't, and they still didn't leave me alone. I knew it was part of the deal in the life I had signed up to, but the fear of it has never left me. I'm still not good at being recognized. I wear scruffy clothes and hats and keep my head down.
34I love working in Britain because it is my home and it means I can be with my friends and family and work at the same time. If you are working in Britain, a lot of the time you are doing much smaller budget. I like doing a mixture of both. Early on in my career I did some enormously huge-budget films, and to be able to switch it up a bit and do small-budget ones is great as well.
35On screen these days, you rarely see a big, strong man. You see slender, androgynous-looking boys. I've worked with very few people whom I feel small against. The most manly thing ever is a guy who can cry, who's in touch with himself.
36I could never have an affair with any of my leading men, though. They always turn into brothers. I'm a classic turn-them-into-brothers kind of girl.
37I tried college for three months but I was desperately unhappy. I just wanted to perform. I was getting straight As but I had no friends and cried every day.
38[on being asked if she would go out with Robbie Williams] I don't know, I don't know him. He's very good looking though.
39[on her wardrobe] I go for whatever is clean.
40I think it's important to make time for the people in your life who you love and who love you back.
41[on her costumes for The Duchess (2008)] I was literally sewn into these dresses. Because of that, and the hoops, I just couldn't fit into the loo at all - I just had to hang on all day.
42[on turning her back on Hollywood blockbuster adventure films]: I can't imagine ever doing another one. I had five months off from Pirates during the summer last year, when I made Silk and Atonement (2007), and it was so great - I want to be able to explore emotions in smaller projects. That's not to say I won't suddenly read a big Hollywood blockbuster and go "Oooh, that might be good..." But I haven't yet.
43[on modesty over historical accuracy in King Arthur (2004)] The Celts would've been fighting naked and painted blue, but there was no way I was going to do that. Having a bare midriff and running around killing people was fun. But you don't want to see boobs bumping up and down on a battlefield. It would be distracting.
44I think I always disappoint people, because they always expect someone very pretty. Very done. There's so much pressure to be thin, blonde and busty. I'm skinny, but even I couldn't fit into some of the clothes there (in L.A.)! In a funny kind of way, I think you create it yourself. I think it's much better to go with the flow and embrace your body, whatever shape it is, and just be happy.
45I don't read anything and I don't look at newspapers. It's too weird, so I'm not really aware of hype anywhere.
46I'm naturally an extremely lazy person, so if someone did everything for me, I really think I would do nothing at all.
47The most exercise I do is turning on the television.
48Nudity frightens me, but I will do it when I think it's necessary - or when it makes me giggle.
49People said to me yesterday, "How does it feel to be anorexic?". I had no idea that I was. I can safely say that I'm not. I've got a lot of experience with anorexia. My grandmother and great-grandmother suffered from it. In a way it's good that it's out there and people are talking about it. It's quite interesting because it's normally high-achieving women who suffer from it because, I guess, they're control freaks.
50People send over dresses for me to wear to these functions, but I often feel like a 5-year-old in my mom's clothes. So I just wear jeans and a top every single time.
51[on Guinevere] She's very manipulative and calculating and would use whomever to get her own way, whether it was with her sexuality or by killing someone. It felt very empowering playing her!
52There's no individuality on the red carpet. That's why I loved Björk's Oscar swan dress. I wish I had the courage.
53I'm incredibly self-conscious about my body.
54Producers usually hire a stylist for me when I got to premieres because they think I'm so pathetic.
55If I have a dark side, I haven't discovered it yet. How very boring of me.
56To be honest, I'd sooner be with my mates having a pint.
57I'm not a social person, so I really have very few friends in the business.
58I don't court attention, which is why I've never been to nightclubs like Chinawhite.
59I'm dyslexic, and at six years old, they realized I couldn't read a word and had been fooling them. My mum said to me: "If you come to me with a book in your hand and a smile on your face every day through the summer holiday, I'll get you an agent.".
60Last year, I went to the Vanity Fair party after the Oscars and I stood in the corner and had a lot of champagne. It's very, very scary.
61There are pressures to conform to a certain type, tall, blonde, thin, big breasts, you know - The Type.
62The most fantastic date I've ever had was going bowling, because I don't bowl and I'm awful.
63I do remember, at six, thinking I should be earning my own living. My mum says I was born 45.
64I suppose I'm more of a tomboy than the girly-girl, which is why I can't walk on stilettos very well.
65A newspaper here voted me one of the scruffiest people in Britain. I'm quite proud of that. It's completely true.
66On her possibly being anorexic: I've got a lot of experience with anorexia. It was in my family. My grandmother, and my great-grandmother suffered from it and I had a lot of friends at school who suffer from it so I don't think it's anything to be taken lightly.
67I paint and draw, but very badly.
68I always feel like I'm the one with everything to prove.
69Three years after that I was diagnosed as dyslexic, and we struck a deal: I was allowed to start acting on condition that I would read constantly and get good grades at school.
70In L.A., I'm twice the size - height and everything else - of most of the other actresses who are going for an audition.
71I've always been quite tomboyish.
72I don't like parties very much. I'm not a very sociable being.
73I don't read any magazines or newspapers any more, because I find it really scary and I get really scared when I'm followed by photographers. I have, on many occasions, broken down in tears because I find it terrifying. I dropped out of school when I was 16 so there's nothing else that I can do.
74I don't do a thing to keep fit, I just cannot make myself work out. My abs are just luck - my mum has good ones so it's a family trait.
75We're all fans of cinema, you know. Forget about being an actor, I love watching films. I really do. That's what I love doing, as a hobby. I find the whole process fascinating, as do my parents, they go to the cinema a lot.
76Every part I've ever got, I always thought it was completely ridiculous that I was up for it. With Pirates, I only packed for a week because I was sure that I was going to get sacked. I thought they'd made the hugest mistake.
77The fact that we haven't focused on the love triangle between Arthur, Lancelot and Guinevere was actually one of the things that made me want to do the film. It's interesting to tell it in a completely new way.
78I don't think about nutrition. The very thought of a diet makes me want chips and ice cream. And I just hate going to the gym. I cannot stand it.
79[on the love scene with Clive Owen in King Arthur (2004)] It was part of the job. There's no point in being embarrassed about it, because that is the name of the game. It was just another day at the office. A very nice day at the office.
80I'd wanted to get stuck into the action on Pirates of the Caribbean and I asked Jerry [Jerry Bruckheimer] if I could have a sword fight in that, and he more than made up for it in King Arthur (2004) by giving me axe fights, knife fights, and all the rest of it. I absolutely loved it. It was like being 11 years old and in the playground again.
81It's also strange when people recognise you in the street and they know you but you don't know them. It's a little weird, but nothing to complain about.
82I'm a bit of a tomboy so the action stuff was fantastic.
83I don't have a problem with my body. I'm not just going to strip off all my clothing, but if the part calls for it and I don't think there's any way round, I'm absolutely fine.
84Acting requires me to be very observant, which means being able to sit in cafes for hours and watch people.
85(on actresses living in Hollywood) I take my hat off to actresses there, particularly the young ones, because the emphasis is on trying to find perfection. But I think it's the imperfections in people that make them perfect. I don't find perfect faces very interesting.
86In this business, fame lasts for a second. You can be blown up and be blown down. People keep losing interest in faces because new ones come along every single second. I'm one at the moment. Tomorrow, I won't be. That's cool. I'm not saying that when it does end, I'll be like, "Yay! It's ending." But I'll move on and do something else because that's what has to be done. It's about survival. If you're sad about it, then you're in the wrong job.
87As a moviegoer and a woman, I want to see that, so it's great to get to play parts like that. But Guinevere is a terrifying creature. If I saw a battle, I'd run in the other direction. I'm not strong in that way at all. But I'm certainly someone who has always known what I wanted and tried to get it.
88I don't think I can call myself an actress yet. I just don't think my skill level is that high. I hope that with every job it gets better. But until I'm good, I can say I'm trying to be an actor, but I don't think I've completely made it.
89(on her conception) I was a bet. My mum was desperate for another child, and my dad told her that the only way they could afford to have one was if she sold a play. So Mum wrote "When I Was a Girl, I Used to Scream and Shout".
90I know for a fact the work is going to dry up, and people will get bored of me. That's not bitterness, just the truth.
91On making Love Actually (2003): We had kind of done all our wedding and we felt like the stars of the show, then sudden you've got all these other people with story lines and you think "Excuse me, I know you're Alan Rickman, but get out of my film, please, thank you.".
92When in doubt, faint.
93Katharine Hepburn and Vivien Leigh are my heroes. Not because of their ability, but because of their perseverance.
94I'm a tomboy beanpole? I can't use a computer, so maybe I'm a bit out of the loop. I don't know whether to be flattered or not flattered. The beanpole bit, is that good? Can you be a sexy beanpole?
95(at a photo shoot) I'm a hooker in these pictures, and I must be a high priced one because I'm staying at the Ritz, which is good.
96(on The View (1997)) I met Barbara Walters backstage and didn't know who she was. She's an American phenomenon, I was told later. I'm just sooo English.
97(on shoes) I see a pair of shoes I adore, and it doesn't matter if they have them in my size. I buy them anyway.
98Do you know that on all the sets I've been on, nobody has ever made a pass at me?
99(After being called the new Hayley Mills) That was cruel! Nothing against Hayley Mills, but I'm trying to be cool here. I'm trying to be edgy.
100On Bend It Like Beckham (2002): I thought there would be doubles--stunt doubles--and I would just run in for the close-ups, but unfortunately they didn't have the money for that.
101I've always been a snob about qualifications.
102There's no point having an 18th birthday in America.
103I feel less blonde now and, er, smarter!
104(on kissing Orlando Bloom in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)) There were these teenaged girls off-cam, and they were ready to kill me because I kissed Orlando Bloom!
105On wearing a corset on Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003): "I had a Scarlett O'Hara thing, she gets her waist down to 18 and a half inches--so I thought I would try that. For five minutes, it's fantastic--you have this tiny waist and fantastic cleavage, but oxygen deprivation is a big problem!
106The problem for me was that by being in the film the magic was broken. I loved the first Star Wars film and my mum was really into it too, that's why I took the part. But the Force wasn't there when we were filming it, and they didn't have real light sabres, which annoyed me.
