On having a soft spot for British men:
“I love their sense of humor and the sense of chivalry and charm. It’s something that is innately a part of the culture – we don’t have that over here, it’s not the same in America.”
On her admiration of Colin Firth:
“He’s the perfect Englishman. Just enough of the self-effacing to a point that it’s comfortable for other people, but also totally charming and engaging to where he makes you feel special. He’s got that British honesty.”
On her love for London:
“What I love about London is all the green spaces – you know how every little neighborhood will have a little park or a square…. I like to get walking in a city. I always find myself in very interesting places. I love London.”
On her relationship with fellow actress Gwyneth Paltrow:
“We became very close after my dad’s death. She reached out and it was very sweet. We bonded on that.”
