I've like been very sensitive lately to things.
00:07
And I was watching,
00:08
do you know that show Say Yes To The Dress?
00:10
I love that show, and we have like multiple.
00:13
We record it for some reason, so we have like multiple
00:16
different shows that are, you know, and I just sit there
00:18
sometimes and like watch them, and I start like tearing up
00:22
when the ladies try on the dress.
00:24
And then at the very end when they do like the recap
00:25
and you see their wedding, and their just like,
00:28
and then the groom is like talking about how beautiful
00:31
he thinks that she looks, and I like find myself tearing up.
00:33
Like this is so weird.
00:35
Or, Dakota doesn't know this, but I like will sometimes
00:39
watch old videos of Dakota on talk shows
00:43
when she was like, yeah, like six.
00:46
She was so cute and I'll just like watch them
00:49
over and over again and they make me cry for some reason,
00:51
but I'm very nostalgic, so I think that things like that,
00:55
kind of like baby album.
00:57
Who do I have a crush on?
00:58
I'm like very, kind of maybe this is like cliche or,
01:02
you know, people say it a lot, and I don't really know him,
01:04
but Leonardo DiCaprio, I think, it's like weird for me,
01:07
'cause I've always, you know, I have like my central guys.
01:11
Like Ryan or like Jared Leto like I really like.
01:15
Or then it's like I saw, when I went to the after party,
01:19
the Met Ball, we were in like a different area
01:23
'cause Dakota's friends with Katy Perry,
01:25
and I like get to tag along.
01:28
And so then Leonardo DiCaprio came into our area,
01:31
and he was like across the room and he was like talking
01:33
to Orlando Bloom and like The Weeknd,
01:35
and I'm like in the other corner.
01:37
And I'm just like starting at him,
01:39
trying to like get him to look over.
01:43
I don't know.
01:44
He didn't look, he did not look.
01:46
Favorite love scene I've had.
01:48
I haven't had many love scenes yet.
01:50
It's like starting to happen if like oh I read the script,
01:52
it's like oh, you know, there it is.
01:56
I did this movie where I played Mary Shelley.
02:00
She wrote Frankenstein.
02:02
I just filmed that, but there's like a scene
02:05
where a guy likes come up behind me,
02:08
but he's my husband, basically.
02:10
And then we're like making out and we like fall on the couch
02:13
and then he like takes my dress off.
02:16
I have like a corset on.
02:17
The things you have to do make the corset look good.
02:20
Chicken cutlets that we're like putting in.
02:24
It's so funny.
02:25
We're like oh God, make sure the cutlets are good.
02:28
There's so many royals to me.
02:32
Right at the moment, I think Cate Blanchett
02:34
is like a huge royal to me, I just love her.
02:37
She really transforms herself.
02:38
She like totally goes there.
02:40
Technically, we've done two movies together,
02:42
because Benjamin Button I played her younger.
02:45
And then Babel, she played my mom,
02:48
but she was in Morocco, I was in Mexico,
02:52
so we had no scenes together.
02:53
Same with Brad Pitt.
02:54
He was in both those movies, too.
02:55
Didn't work with him.
