When actors get a bad name for diva behavior - I've never seen it. Because my experience with people who are really famous actors is that they work really hard.

I can't imagine it if beauty was the only currency I used as an actress. It just doesn't interest me.

Tags: Beauty, Interest, Used

I don't think I'm curvaceous. It's simply that most other actresses are really, stupidly tiny.

Tags: Simply, Tiny

The things that prey on my mind in London seem to disappear as soon as I find myself in a different environment. Survival mode kicks in.

Tags: Mind, Seem, Survival

Because I trained in theater, I always leave a film shoot feeling like I haven't done anything, like I just sat in front of the camera and whispered, essentially.

Tags: Done, Feeling, Leave

Documenting trips makes them that much richer. I stick in train tickets and business cards from restaurants. It makes the whole experience poetic, describing the sights, smells and sounds around me. It means I can relive the holiday years later.

I think American guys tend to be a bit more forward, a bit more chatty and open than the Brits. The Brits seem to have a darker sense of humor, though I have met some Americans who have adopted bits of the British dry sense of humor as well.

My real self, the self I have always been from a child, is a loner and nerd, slightly overweight, with a very heavy fringe. That is who I was as a kid. I don't think I will ever be anything other than that.

Skiing in Whistler was great fun. It's an extreme environment that's very different to my own and I had never skied before, so I had to learn to take on the elements quite bravely. It was nice to try something new.

Sleepy Hollow had a lot of action in it, even though it was a fairy-tale movie.

Costumes are the first impression that you have of the character before they open their mouth-it really does establish who they are.

In real life, a lot of people at that level will have their kimonos made especially for them.

Tags: Beauty, Helped, Knowing

On Planet of the Apes, I had a very knowledgeable team who knew good materials, but I had one main source person who worked online and on the street continually looking for the proper materials.

Tags: Good, Looking, Team

Planet of the Apes was a gigantic challenge, making the clothes work so people could do stunts and action in the clothes. I really learned a lot about that in that movie.

The designs were based on quite a lot of research of what a movie musical is, filtered through the eyes of today. If we'd gone strictly with the '20s, the movement would have been impaired.
