Sounds noisy, where are you?
I’m on the street in New York. I just love New York. My heart does cartwheels when I arrive. As a child, so many of the TV programs I watched involved yellow taxi cabs and those little staircases outside the brown apartments … I’ve been here a fair bit in my life and still when I see steam, or whatever it is, coming out from the sewers, I get really excited. I feel like I’m in a Scorsese film.
How was your first “W.E.” meeting with Madonna?
I was surprised at her passion for the project. She had read all the books on [the subject]. The first time I met her I said, “Hi,” and then an hour later, “Thanks very much.” She really knew what she was talking about.
(Laughs) I don’t remember them being itchy. What I really remember was that once we shot that scene, there was a large pizza waiting for me in the makeup truck because [Edward] was very slim. I had won the war on bread for about three months before we shot that and literally the second she said, “Cut,” I was in the makeup trailer eating the biggest pizza you’ve ever seen in your life.
Did you feel very posh playing the part?
I want to be careful of the implications of the word. It made you feel very different — being tailored from scratch, standing in a large country house, having people calling you “your royal highness” and bowing.
I think I’d get used to that in about a day.
Yeah, it doesn’t take long. It was all pretty fun. It’s better than playing a down-and-out character, I suppose. Mainly, it was the suits, I have to say, that made me feel quite special, because they were absolutely made to fit me and nobody else on the planet.
