The January issue of InStyle hits newsstands this Friday, December 14.
On dating actors:
“I’m just more attracted to actors. I like their choice to be artists—that’s ballsy. And a guy who has such access to his emotional life is sexy. Or maybe because lots of the actors I know are so broken. I don’t think I’m compatible with anybody I’ve dated. Maybe I’m so attracted to actors because I’m not ready for the “settled down” thing yet.” She does have one love, though, her dog Finn: “I got Finn from the set decorator on “Big Love.” I was just going to foster him for 24 hours but caved the next day. I love him so much.”
On doing nude scenes for “Lovelace”:
“It’s not about my body. It’s not about me. You’re playing somebody else. You’re not going to believe a love scene if the people are dressed. You’re not going to believe a stripper who has on a bra and underwear the whole time. At the same time, it has to do with how comfortable you are with letting people see your skin. For me, I’m ok with it. Yes, I have parts of my body that I don’t necessarily love. Like I have red bumps around my bikini line. But it doesn’t matter, at the end of the day.”
On how she always needs to be busy:
“I’m too measured and controlling—about everything. That’s why I take Lexapro. It’s for OCD. I don’t feel like I’m struggling with it. I think OCD is a part of me that protects me. It’s also the part of me that I use in my job, in a positive way.” Even while exercising: “I have to do lots of things at the same time. It’s an obsessive-compulsive thing. So when I’m on the elliptical machine, which I do almost every day, I have to be knitting, playing Soduku, and listening to something.”
On singing in “Les Miserables”:
“What’s most important to [Tom Hooper, director of “Les Miserables”] is an actor who can get it and who can be grounded enough to make it believable when she bursts into song.”
