What’s your take on make-up?
I have to wear a lot of it when I’m working, so I don’t wear any when I’m not working. I enjoy creating a character and playing with my facial features and becoming someone else with the help of make-up, but I also really like days when I don’t have to wear any make-up at all.
What do you do to relax?
With a small child there’s never any time to relax, except maybe with a glass of wine when she has gone to bed. That is bliss. And maybe a nice, relaxing bath—if I manage to have one where she doesn’t get in with me and we end up playing with dinosaurs.
How do you care for your skin?
I’m very low-maintenance; I don’t go for facials or anything like that. I do use a bit of rosehip oil, and occasionally I mix it with some moisturiser. Other than that—nothing!
Do you feel we are in an interesting moment for women in film?
Yes. It feels like there has been a shift. There are more scripts written by women; it’s just that the lack of female directors has been a big problem. When there are female writers and directors and producers, the parts for women are better, and so the way that society views women through drama is much more well-rounded.
What’s the best part of being a Chanel ambassador?
Seeing the different facets of the house and how they all work. Going into the lab and smelling all the different raw materials is something I love so much. l feel lucky to be able to peer behind the scenes.
