I'm very independent, creatively, always trying to push myself - and I think that comes from my mother.
I think in every character there are aspects of yourself that you bring to it. But then it would be really boring to just play yourself.
I'm attracted to playing people who aren't necessarily straightforward.
The more famous you get, in some ways it makes acting more difficult because you're more known as yourself. There's more of a narrative about you rather than about the character.
The key is working with great directors. A film is so many different people and all their talents, but particularly the directors, because of the idiosyncrasies of that person.
Acting has always existed alongside my normal life. It's been a case of learning on the job. I've worked in so many styles, with so many people, so I've picked bits up from everyone and everything.
I like to keep pushing myself and trying things out. I get easily bored, so I need a challenge.
