Where you’ve seen her:
In period dramas—if you’re into that, sissy boy—such as A Room With a View, Howards End, and The Wings of the Dove, but more likely as foulmouthed support-group junkie, Marla, in Fight Club. And as a chimpanzee in the remake of Planet of the Apes.

Monkey love:
“I loved seeing myself with a new face. That was partially why I did [Planet of the Apes]. I thought, I’m bored with my face now, so it was great to inherit a new one. It’s not every day someone asks you to be an ape.”

Those wacky Brits:
“I need subtitles, because sometimes I have no idea what American men are talking about: ‘I’m jonesin’.’ What on earth does that mean?”

There’s a matchup we’d be into:
“I suppose there is something very sexual about fighting. I don’t mind wrestling. I wrestled with my brothers all the time when I was little. I never stood a chance. And we had tickling matches.”

We’d stare even if you had a date:
“I don’t like loud people. Hideous. With people I don’t know, I can be nervous. I think you can feel more shy when you’re well-known, because when you walk into a party on your own, people stare at you.”
