Allure Excerpts

Having received an request from a reader who lives in a country where this month's Allure has yet to arrive (and is desperately seeking the article with readable text), I came across this short series of excerpts. I'm afraid is isn't the entire article, but I hope it'll suffice for the time being.

This one's for you, Alice.

"I've only ever had about three boyfriends. Only a handful of people have seen into the Pharaoh's Tomb... My best feature is unfortunately a private matter, although I'm told it is spectacular. But you can't really walk it down the red carpet. What can I say?"

Other highlights include quotes about her work:

"Acting requires so much delving into yourself and exposing yourself, so it's sensible to be wondering, Do I still want to be doing this? But I enjoy the work, and everything is so solid at home. I don't care if they say I've had buttock implants. Or not. I don't care. Go ahead! That's the nice thing about getting to the age I am. I could have said I didn't care before--but secretly I did. And now I really don't."

Considering quitting acting to become a doctor:

"I was at the point where I was wondering whether the work I was doing was sustaining me intellectually. I'd had enough of the ludicrous questions. Like, 'Have you had your boobs done?' or 'Have you slept with Colin Farrell?'"
Struggling with her career:

"I sort of ended up in Los Angeles by accident. And it was sort of terrible to be jostled into this position of a fame-hungry starlet. Which is so honestly not me! In fact, I could use a bit more of that because I am such a hermit! So I allowed myself to get really bothered."
Husband Len:

"I have a husband who literally worships me. And cleans the house. And blow-dries my daughter's hair."
