I am who I am and there is nothing I can do about that.
Acting simply cannot be about how you look. It would be very difficult to make a film where you have to be beautiful in every shot. You have to put so much effort into it; you have to hold your head at particular angles, put the light in a certain way and I don't like acting like that. I like to act unconscious of how I look.
I have a nervous breakdown in the movie and in one scene I get to stand at the top of the stairs waving an empty sherry bottle which is, of course, a typical scene from my daily life, so isn't much of a stretch. (on her role in film Harry Potter)
You can't imagine what satisfaction can be gotten from throwing a pie into someone's face.
My worst quality is impatience.
My appearance has changed a lot over the years, but it has far more to do with how I feel about being a woman.
What was important was trying to create something that families could watch together and enjoy together.
I have to write for everyone. What really fascinates me is how you make films or make stories that can genuinely be shared by different groups.
