00:03
Starz found me by sending me an email
00:05
through for an audition for The White Princess.
00:08
I grew up watching Keira Knightley films like nonstop,
00:12
and I always admired kind of period dramas
00:14
and just everything that goes into it.
00:16
I feel like when you perform in a period drama,
00:18
it's so easy to transform yourself
00:20
into someone else because the costumes are so different,
00:23
so it really helps kind of when you're pretending
00:26
to be someone else.
00:27
The hardest part about a corset is
00:30
you can't really nap at lunch.
00:32
I hear a lot of people saying that they can't eat.
00:34
I still eat, and probably that's my problem is
00:36
that it all just holds in your stomach.
00:39
I don't have the resistance to not eat very much
00:42
when I've got a corset on so, yeah.
00:44
I was in the airport, actually I was flying home
00:47
from New York a couple of weeks ago,
00:48
and I was in the shop and there was all the books
00:50
with my face on, and I tried to get a sly picture
00:53
without anyone seeing 'cause I thought,
00:54
oh my God, if someone sees me taking this picture,
00:56
you're gonna be like, such a narcissist.
00:59
Get a grip, go away.
01:01
You can't get away from me, I'm like, hello, hello.
01:05
I know, I get that, it's everywhere.
01:06
I'm sorry.
01:07
My cinematic crush, I probably have many,
01:12
but Paul Rudd, I love you, man.
01:15
Laughter is the way to my heart, and I find him hilarious.
01:18
And he's cute, and I just love that scene
01:20
where they're in the concert and they're slapping the bass.
01:23
I wanna be at a concert where Paul Rudd's slapping the bass.
01:25
When I was younger we used to get
01:27
in Marks and Spencer at home, there's a supermarket,
01:29
and you get Colin the Caterpillar cake,
01:31
it's like a huge chocolate caterpillar.
01:33
It is the best cake ever made,
01:37
and they still do it now, so that's definitely
01:39
when I think back to childhood birthdays
01:40
is Colin the Caterpillar cake.
01:43
Secret skill?
01:45
Is shopping a skill?
01:46
Let's go with that.
01:47
[laughs]
01:49
I love clothes, I love food.
01:53
I probably spend most of my money at Marks and Spencer
01:55
when I'm filming,
01:57
not on caterpillar cake, on various other things.
02:00
I live in Liverpool.
02:01
I can't bring myself to leave just yet.
02:03
Oh, God, it's going to get to a point,
02:05
like I've always said, my brother's still at home too,
02:07
he's 21, and I've said to my mom,
02:09
you do realize we're gonna be like the film's stepbrothers,
02:13
we're both gonna be 30, 40odd years old
02:16
and we're still gonna be in the kids' rooms,
02:17
which would be a lot of fun, but you know I'm hoping
02:19
I can bring myself to fly the nest at some point.
02:23
Nude scenes aren't great for anyone, I don't think.
02:26
My dad's like, Jodie, really?
02:29
And I'm like, Dad, it's not my choice.
02:31
Well, it is my choice, but you know,
02:33
if it's in a script there's not much you can do about it.
02:35
The older I get, the more I don't really squirm about it.
02:38
I won't watch it with them, and I'll just know
02:40
in the back of my head that they've seen that,
02:41
and I go, okay.
