Here’s what the 49-year-old Oscar-winning actress shared with the mag:
On starring in Black Widow, which is being directed by a woman: “There is something that happens in a scene when a woman is across from another woman. It sounds really pompous, but you are free from the history of ownership — I really mean that. It’s liberating.”
On not seeing herself as brave: “I’m shy in real life. But if I have a role in the script and a story to tell, I’m not going to shy away.”
On being surprised by passion of Marvel producers: “It doesn’t feel Hollywood to me, big budget — it feels like the people there are the stewards and guardians of this storytelling they care about.”
