(Sighing) Who did I have a crush on?
00:04
No, I think it would probably be
00:05
Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca.
00:07
I never got into, yeah, I didn't really get
00:09
into the whole fancying movie star thing.
00:13
I should have done.
00:14
I had Emma Thompson on my wall.
00:15
I loved her in, well I loved Sense and Sensibility,
00:18
and I loved Much Ado About Nothing.
00:21
God, every movie makes me cry.
00:23
What was the last one that I've seen that makes,
00:25
I mean I sob, I cried at Maleficent. (laughs)
00:28
Yeah, totally, 100 percent.
00:30
The Katy Perry one made me cry.
00:32
When they break up and she's crying,
00:33
it sorta made me cry at that bit.
00:35
And then the image, and this is awful,
00:38
because clearly she was going through
00:39
an awful time in her life,
00:40
but the image of her crying and then standing up,
00:43
and going on stage with the twizzly tits.
00:45
It was one of the most incredible images
00:47
I think I've seen on screen.
00:50
But yes, that made me cry too.
