00:03
I was not popular in school at all.
00:06
I was kind of a geek, a real geek,
00:08
hugging the walls, very shy.
00:10
I'm still very shy.
00:11
Couldn't really speak, I was blushing when
00:13
a teacher was asking me a question.
00:15
Ahhh, I was paralyzed.
00:17
No I was not good with boys,
00:19
like oh my God, not good.
00:22
I've got a nonidentical twin sister.
00:25
She's not all in the business,
00:27
she lives in Italy, married to an Italian Count.
00:31
She's blonde.
00:32
It's the other me, you know, the happy me.
00:34
'Cause I am so show and at the same time
00:38
I kind of expose myself literally
00:41
to thousands of people and you know,
00:44
this is my body.
00:45
But I still don't really understand why I do that
00:47
and I go, I need to go through therapy.
00:49
Being a Bond girl and I was like oh my God,
00:52
what is it a Bond girl do?
00:53
Is it like wearing a bikini and being beautiful
00:57
and that's it?
00:57
Kinda was like, I was like no I'm not gonna go
00:59
and I won't get it anyway, you know.
01:01
And then they sent me the script
01:04
and I completely changed my mind
01:05
and I thought it was a very, it was a love story.
01:08
I die a lot in movies, I don't know why.
01:12
It's a big rehearsal, yeah.
01:15
People have this image of me of being otherworldly,
01:19
of being weird, that I could kind of communicate
01:23
with the spirits.
01:24
I don't know, maybe it's my dark hair
01:25
or maybe because I don't talk much, you know,
01:28
so they kind of like put me in the woowoowoo
01:31
in a weirdo box.
01:33
I don't know.
01:34
I'm human you know, I'm not like this wooo.
01:36
I've always admired Tim Burton.
01:39
It's always been my dream, absolute dream,
01:43
to work with him.
01:44
And on Miss Peregrine, you know, he called me
01:46
and he was like, "I've got this project,
01:50
"but you might not like it, you might not like it."
01:52
I'm like, I could play a mop for Tim Burton you know?
01:55
You know, anything.
01:56
Miss Peregrine has peculiarity and she can
02:00
transform into a peregrine falcon, to a bird.
02:04
And I would love to have that power, you know,
02:07
that freedom, you know.
02:11
I wouldn't want to conjure spirits, no it's very painful.
02:15
Oh my God, no never.
02:17
I know who I adore.
02:19
I adore Jack Nicholson.
02:20
I was absolutely obsessed by The Shining.
02:23
I saw it as a child, traumatized.
02:25
You know, traumatized traumatized.
02:27
But then I saw it again and again.
02:28
It's because of him that I wanted to become an actress.
02:31
Because of Jack Nicholson in The Shining.
02:33
I love Jack Nicholson when he goes bonkers, you know,
02:36
with his big smile.
02:40
Oh there are many scenes, many,
02:42
all the scenes when he's crazy.
02:43
He makes me laugh, I know it's a horror movie,
02:46
but whatever yeah.
02:47
