On if being famous is how she imagined it would be:
No, I did not ever want to be famous, honestly. It didn’t occur to me until it was already happening. The fame aspect is not something that appealed to me at all. And I was really kind of terrified of it. I wouldn’t trade it to wait tables or whatever. I live my life, I’m grateful for everything. It’s mostly just really annoying. And distracting. And embarrassing for everyone. And I’m conscious for the people I’m with. Now when I go outside, I get photographed by the paparazzi. I’m not to the level of some people – some actresses where it’s constant tabloids – but it’s enough that it’s really uncomfortable.
On her boyfriend, Ben Hanisch:
He’s very protective of me, like, not overprotective, but if someone’s taking pictures of me or filming in a restaurant, he’ll start taking pictures of them. He’s really cool; it’s not a problem to be around any of the sorts of people who are at these events. He takes it all in his stride. But when I say, “Shall we get out of here?” he’s like, “Yes!” I’m so lucky that I met him. And he hadn’t seen any of my work before we met…
On whether there is any danger of her happiness jeopardising her comedy material:
Um, well, I’m never that happy…I can be happy, and funny stuff also happens; I don’t think I’m like that. I went down on Ben this morning and he yawned – it was an accident, but we were both just dying laughing. I’m happy, but obviously I was like, “Fuck you.”….When I’m down there, if it’s more than a minute, it’s his birthday or something. But this morning it just happened – and then he yawned and it was a great excuse to stop.
On whether there’s anyone that she would want to snog that she could cast in her next film:
Oh, gosh, I mean there’s so many…Yeah, for sure, I wouldn’t kick [Tom Hardy] out of bed. Christian Bale, Idris Elba…I mean, this is just a list of who I wanna sleep with, right?
