Personal Quote:

I'd really like the type of career Rachel Weisz has. I have a lot of respect for her: brilliant, intelligent, a witty sort of woman... You know, she'll do a rom-com - not that I ever want to do a rom-com - but then she'll go off and do The Constant Gardener (2005), have a family, and live a quite normal life, it seems. I respect that. See more »

Trivia:

She is a big fan of Kate Bush. She went to the first night of her comeback series of concerts at the Hammersmith Apollo in 2014, then was interviewed about it on Newsnight (1980). See more »

Trademark:

Her unique speaking voice
