Eminem, Justin Timberlake, NSYNC,
00:07
no, no I only liked Justin, sorry guys.
00:10
I'm so sorry, that's horrible.
00:13
And the Spice Girls.
00:14
I was gonna say the other people
00:16
I dressed up as were the Spice Girls.
00:17
I went through different stages.
00:19
I was Baby first, then I was Sporty,
00:21
and then I was Ginger.
00:22
They were, like, the only girls that
00:24
I kind of, like, dressed up as.
00:25
I was dressed up a lot of the time,
00:27
when I was a kid.
00:28
It was always men.
00:30
Cause I just didn't feel like there were many, like,
00:32
strong superherotype, like, women.
00:35
Apart from, like, Wonder Woman.
00:36
Which, you know, which is good but
00:38
I don't want to be a five year old
00:39
running around in, like, a bikini.
00:41
Did I audition for Suicide Squad?
00:42
Oh I'm in America, shit, sorry.
00:44
Did I audition for Suicide Squad, yes I did?
00:47
I met David,
00:49
in, on a dark and stormy night.
00:53
In a hotel in London.
00:55
He was so mysterious, didn't tell me anything about the
00:57
movie, just kind of described this character to me.
01:01
This kind of, crazy, witchlike force.
01:06
And just kind of spoke to me about different things
01:10
like addiction and mental illness.
01:13
Which are things that I find very, very interesting indeed.
01:15
And then, I got the movie and it was
01:18
really, really crazy.
01:20
When I was going to the countryside
01:21
he asked me to try and find a forest and if it was
01:23
a full moon to get naked and walk through
01:26
the forest with my feet in the mud.
01:28
I howled like a wolf.
01:31
I was really, now when I think back on it,
01:33
it would have been really funny if
01:34
someone had seen me.
01:36
Like a sexual love scene?
01:38
I find, I find sex scenes in movies so ridiculous.
01:42
Because who has sex like that?
01:45
I don't know if it was my favorite sex scene,
01:46
but it was definitely, I think the movie
01:48
captured and and the lead up to that sex scene
01:49
was so amazing with Carol.
01:52
The, the, like, awkward reading into every movement,
01:58
and look, and gaze, and touch,
02:00
and overthinking every aspect of it.
02:03
Just the whole thing made me want
02:04
to have a panic attack.
02:05
[woman laughs]
02:07
It was wonderful.
02:08
My earliest memory.
02:08
Okay, I have two.
02:10
One of them, one of them is
02:11
when they're both about cut...
02:14
Oh my God, that's hard.
02:15
They're both about cutting myself.
02:17
That sounds so dark.
02:18
I really didn't mean it like that.
02:19
Used to watch my dad shaving.
02:21
And I used to find it really facinating.
02:24
So I used to always, like, go
02:25
after he'd left the bathroom.
02:27
Go and cover my face in shaving foam
02:29
and with the end of, like, a moisturizer
02:31
bottle, it's gotten a really hard edge.
02:33
I would pretend to shave.
02:34
Then one time I got his razor
02:35
and I ran it along the bottom of my finger.
02:37
And just cut my finger off.
02:39
And then the other time,
02:41
what are those things called, those knives
02:42
that you push up, jackknife?
02:44
I was watching the Flintstones and I
02:46
was playing with the jackknife
02:48
and I pulled the jackknife the other way.
02:50
Instead of pushing it up,
02:51
I pulled it down into my hand.
02:53
Why are these the memories that I have?
02:56
[laughs]
02:57
I'm really concerned.
02:59
I was really obsessed with death as a child,
03:01
and blood and things so maybe that's why.
