I was 20 years old when, despite mass protests against military action, Iraq was invaded in 2003 - it didn't make for motivated political participation, I can tell you.
I just thought, why didn't they get someone like Kate Bosworth, if that's what they wanted? About 40 per cent of success as an actor is now based on whether you're good at being interviewed and how you conduct yourself. [on her dating habits] I date nothing but older men.

I've reached a stage in my life where I've started to worry whether it's a fetish or not. I suppose that the only real effect of ageing is deep cynicism - that, and you are maybe a little more comfortable with yourself. I have used every part of my body, plus muscles I did not know I had, because the dancing is a combination of salsa and Latin ballroom.

They'd do the job, smile and look pretty on the cover of Teen Vogue. [on the Olympics] I do think the Olympics are a curiously male obsession. As a young actress, there's not a lot that you can do to get away from those roles except try and move within them. I'm very much into self-improvement - particularly with cinema.
Some of my closest friends are the children of refugees and I have always been fascinated by their stories and the struggle of how they came to the UK and assimilated into society.
[on her visit to the Syrian Iraqi border] I learned a lot about the troubled histories of three different groups: the Palestinians from Iraq, the Iraqis themselves, and the Syrian people.
