As wonderful as charity is, that money runs out. It’s not sustainable. It lasts for a certain period of time and it’s gone. What i really think people need is the opportunity to help themselves.
I have a real thing for Mexican directors. And I love Guillermo del Toro and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
Young girls are told you have to be the delicate princess. Hermione taught them that you can be the warrior.
We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that that they are and that when they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence.
I used to look back at pictures and cringe but actually I’m quite proud that I’ve had fun with fashion and don’t always look perfect. The only regret I have is when I look at something I wore when I was very young and it obviously looks like it belonged to someone else.
I’m a multidimensional person and that’s the freedom of fashion: that you’re able to reinvent yourself through how you dress and how you cut your hair or whatever.
I truly, truly believe that beauty is something that comes from within.
How can we effect change in the world when only half of it is invited or feel welcome to participate in the conversation?
I think when you take away all, like, the premieres and press stuff and all the special effects, then you just come down to the fact that it’s all about acting, and I think that has been the best bit for me.
If you believe in equality, you’re a feminist. Sorry to tell you.
I’m excited about the ageing process. I’m more interested in women who aren’t perfect. They’re more compelling.
I find it easier to cry than I do to laugh convincingly. It’s incredibly hard to pull off a laugh that feels natural take after take after take, that feels real. You can tell a fake laugh the minute you hear it, and that’s something I really struggle with more than producing tears.
