The magazine caught up with the Oscar winner who will be starring in the upcoming movie Cloud Atlas (in theaters Oct 26) and chatted it up with her about her biggest regrets, her fiance, and on aging.
On her biggest regret
“Throughout my career I have been talked out of things I wanted to do, and when I look back I think, I should have followed my instincts.”
On why fiance Olivier Martinez is different from other guys
“I’m a hopeless romantic, and I won’t stop till I get it right! [Olivier’s] silly, a clown, and very much the life of the party, which is good for someone like me. Danny Downer…been there, done that. Now I like Louie Lightfoot!”
On her outlook on aging
“Don’t stress about your age or fight it. Appreciate the young women who look like you once did, but don’t strive to be like them. You’re moving into a new phase of your life—embrace it. That’s what I hope to do.”
The issue hits newsstands this Friday, October 19th.
