I was a very physical child... I was a tree-climber; I was a tomboy.

Some suggestions for you :

I'm a serial monogamist and would never dream of being as predatory as some of the women I've played. I can actually be a bit shy.

There are a lot of parallels between the historical Henry VIII and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. There's an oscillation and extremity of emotion throughout his repertoire that lends itself beautifully to the nature of Henry VIII, definitely. He will push things to the limit, and yet remain in emotional control.

I was so excited to work with Ridley Scott. Who wouldn't be?

Make-up is all about shading; it's about tactical application.

It's fascinating how much of our sense of attractiveness and feminine identity is bound up in our hair.

The beauty of 'The Hunger Games' and also 'Game of Thrones,' in fairness, both projects have really complex, three-dimensional, contradictory, strong women... The writing of female characters is extraordinary and equal to the men.

Sometimes a woman's looks or sensuality are too readily wrapped up in their power.

My party trick is that I can get ready to go to the party really quickly. I'm actually a woman that can have a shower, dry and style her hair, do her make-up and get dressed in under an hour.

My yoga mat comes everywhere. Keeps me stretched out after sitting still on all those planes, trains and road journeys.

I'm not going to comment about potential jobs in the future because that's a rabbit hole to go down and get caught up in, but all I'll say is I'll go where the good scripts are.

I love my camera crews on all my jobs. It's the half of the job that the audience never gets to see. They're integral. They're as much a part of making a movie or television show as I am.

I'm glad that cinema is catching up to what television has known for a while: That three-dimensional, complex women get an audience engaged as much as the men.

Good style - regardless of fads - means the thing that suits your body.

Obviously, you have quieter years than others - you don't go jumping out of a plane every day.
