On being typecast:
“Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that’s the end of the story. How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, f***ing, gown-wearing eight-foot model? When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away first.”

On turning 40:
‘I’ve never been a big birthday person. I’ll celebrate a month later if I’m in the right place and the right restaurant, “You guys! It’s my birthday!”40’s rock. People are so concerned for me. It’s okay. It’s such a weird thing that we put so much – I think especially for women. I’m so happy to be in my 40s and to not be in my 20s, like worried about whether I fit into my skinny jeans and whether I’ll be able to get in that club. It’s so nice to just be in love with your couch and make cheesy sandwiches and just enjoy life. It’s been great.’
