Vanessa Kirby on the August 2018 Cover of Marie Claire UK Magazine

Vanessa Kirby will be joining Dwayne Johnson in the Fast and Furious spinoff and she is the August 2018 cover star of Marie Claire UK magazine. On the cover, Vanessa is pretty in a green dress. In the issue, she talks The Crown, working with Tom Cruise, Time's Up and more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview. For more on Vanessa's feature, go to and pick up a copy on newsstand. 

On The Crown & the jewelry from the show:
I could talk about it forever, and I will talk about Margaret forever because I’m absolutely obsessed. Everyone was like, 'What is that?' Was it real? ‘It was plastic. We didn’t wear any real jewels. The costume designer was like, 'Don’t tell anyone that!' They couldn’t trust us not to run off with them in the night. No, they couldn’t trust me, because I’m so clumsy. The girls [in the costume department] called me Bambi, because I’d fall over things and burn cigarette holes in my costumes.

On her kissing scene with Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible which was caught by paparazzi:
The next wife falls at his feet. The most disconcerting thing was the people I didn’t think would believe it, did, and they were texting my boyfriend, asking, 'Are you OK?' I don’t think they believe anything they read now because you just can’t. None of it is real. To be getting married to him? Not even a snog, it was marriage.

On being bullied:
I was badly bullied for three years in primary school and that was one of my darkest times. Just being me. I still haven’t got to the bottom of it, but I was massively affected, and I got this tropical [intestinal] disease, giardia, and had two years of treatment and hospitals. I think it was all linked, really. Now when I look back on it, I feel like those three years gave me a kind of empathy or emotional understanding. I found an acceptance in acting that I couldn’t find anywhere else; it made me feel alive when I was a kid.
