On sexism: “Sexism is institutional. It’s not conscious. People don’t realise what they’re saying, because you hear it from both men and women. People are now saying, ‘Listen, you need to hire women, specifically because they are women,’ and although that’s uncomfortable, it’s how things change.”

On growing as an actress: “When I was younger, it felt like the main point was that [I was] one of the attractive actresses, and I felt totally minimized by it, as everyone does. But it’s worn off, in a good way; I’m happy to have grown out of the place where that is the main point made about me.”

On actresses she admires: “Juno [Temple] has always been a total individual; she’s never tried to look or behave like anyone else… Jennifer Lawrence is a great example of brainy, feisty beauty.”

On media images: “The media always chooses one element of you to assign as your identity plaque: ‘She’s the mom, she’s political, she’s the one who is really pretty.’ But we are all of those things.”

On getting funding for Meadowland: “Many people said, ‘Come to us when the project is real.’ I answered: ‘The project is real: we have a director, we have an actor, we have a script, it’s real.’ And they said, ‘No – when you get the guy attached.’ Like we were just girls with a little project. There’s this sense that a project is incomplete if there’s no male participation.”

On backlash over photos of her breastfeeding: “I didn’t know breastfeeding was controversial; the fact that [the media] are sexualizing it is shocking.”

On working with Martin Scorsese: “Scorsese is like a new film student who’s got his first chance at making a movie, every single time. He sees the opportunity to make a movie as this luxury, this joy, this gift, and that rubs off on everyone.”

On Hugh Laurie: “The most kind, professional and hilarious human being.”
