00:03
Two women that I really grew up really fancying
00:06
was Juliette Lewis, in Natural Born Killers.
00:10
I had a real, like, crush on her in that.
00:13
Feisty and scary and, you know.
00:15
And then Juliette Binoche was the other one.
00:20
Trois Couleurs: Bleu.
00:21
Tragic and angry. This sums up my life!
00:23
[laugh]
00:25
Now, what's my favorite love scene in a movie?
00:27
Um, again this is weird. It's not really a love scene.
00:30
It's, you know, The Wicker Man.
00:32
You know, when she's naked
00:33
and she's banging against the wall.
00:35
I wouldn't call it a love scene
00:36
but it's the first one that came to my head.
00:37
[laugh from off camera]
00:38
Which is bizarre.
00:39
God, that's not a love scene at all, is it?
00:41
Acting royalty to me is Emma Thompson.
00:43
I can't even begin to understand how she does what she does
00:46
so naturally, so effortlessly, so brilliantly.
00:50
And it is sort of, as sort of well respected as she is
00:53
I feel like she's one of those actors
00:54
that's not lauded enough.
00:56
My favorite moment in any film, it's a weird one,
00:58
but it's in Love, Actually
01:00
where she leaves,
01:02
she finds out that her husband is cheating on her,
01:07
she gets a gift and she leaves the room,
01:09
she goes up to her room and she cries.
01:10
She settles herself and she comes back.
01:12
And by the time she left the room and come back,
01:13
everything in her life has changed,
01:15
but nothing has at the same time.
01:17
And it's beautiful acting.
