Quotes

#Quote
1 I am not precious about the way I look. Never having been defined as a great beauty makes that easier.
2 [on a conversation with actor Robert Carlyle, also from a working-class background] We were laughing, the two of us, saying, "Just think: our children know what Parma ham is."
3 [on how she saw herself in her youth] A tomboy - androgynous until I was 19. Desperately shy. The only confidence I had was in drama.
4 How on earth do you teach your child not to be spiteful in the playground when online you can say whatever you like?
5 I knew if I wanted to do this [acting] for a living, I really had to pursue it. When I was auditioning for drama schools, the girls around me were from very different backgrounds. I remember thinking, "Should I lie about my family?"
6 [about her parents] They taught me many things. Most of all that it is vital in life just to turn up. To turn up for people, to be present, to have the conversation. This has emboldened me, given me greater empathy.
7 [on her return to the final episode of Shameless (2004)] I made a drunken promise as I was leaving that I'd come back to play Fiona Gallagher for the very last episode - never thinking it would happen! It was extraordinary: same grim and grubby kitchen, same props... It was lovely.
8 I am a sanguine individual. Most people are having a difficult time at the moment but still get up in the morning... As a species, we thrive. And I am interested in that ability to thrive. Things have to be about hope. On stage you need to convey hope or you'll lose an audience.
9 I'm always dancing in my kitchen. And I love to sing. I've always sung. My father was a lovely singer. Always sang Jim Reeves at parties. I sing to my boy and he sings too.
10 I didn't really inhabit myself until I was in my 30s. And motherhood is an epic event. You can't help but be altered by it - and it is important to be.
11 [on her ideal holiday] Right now, as a working mum: Four Seasons, Bali! No, actually, my favourite would always be a muddy tent holiday. Don't get me wrong: there is nothing more delightful than a dirty martini by the pool but I like being in nature.
12 My husband [the actor, James McAvoy] has an extraordinary ability to receive a lot of exposure and still maintain a sense of self without giving anything away. I think it's very powerful.
13 [on avoiding reviews] It is better not to look at them; it is like reading someone's diary. What you think about me is none of my business. It's important to keep faith in the project you are working on.
14 [on her time at The Drama Centre] It put me through my paces. I toughened up. I was by no means the star of the year. It taught me to be resourceful, to go away and do the work myself. Invaluable.
15 [on the birth of her son] We thought we were going to have girl, so we had 15 girls' names lined up and a little boy popped out. We had no idea and we had hardly any boys' names. He's a Brendan and it suits him really, really well. I do feel my life's completely expanded since he arrived. When my baby was born, I felt like somebody had spiked my drink and I suddenly was so full of love that it was a little bit as if I was drugged. I didn't think that anyone could feel that way.
16 [while appearing in George Bernard Shaw's "Saint Joan" at the National in 2007, when she tried to banish reviews] I thought, no, I love this, and it's about what we've been through as a company. Then I got in one night and put the telly on and the Late Review was on, and just at that moment Tim Lott and Jeanette Winterson were saying, "Well, she's... all right." My husband was filming away abroad - people are never there when you need them. And I called him and he said, "OK, I'm going to have to tell you about a couple of nice reviews, just to cheer you up."
17 It's never enjoyable watching yourself because you're never as good looking as you hope you are. You're not expecting to be Penelope Cruz... but I'm a female of the species. I have my hang-ups and all of that.
18 [on upcoming actors] It's a curious time for young women. There's this obsession with physical perfection. Jesus wept, what teenagers are putting themselves through! That's a terrifying development that luckily I didn't have to confront because one's so self-conscious anyway.
19 I was conscious that I didn't fit in with all that Thatcherite crap. Suddenly in the 80s it was all about going to get a job in Barclays and I remember thinking I can't even swallow that, it tastes so foul. You're so self-righteous when you're young.
20 [on what attracted her to the role of Alma Rattenbury in Terence Rattigan's play "Cause Célèbre"] Well the fact that it was the centenary [of Rattigan's birth] was interesting. The overt sexual language of the play is surprising and Rattigan writes brilliantly for women, he just does.
21 [on her son] I am very lucky. I have known wonderful romantic love in my life but to actually see this little creature and find him to be the most beautiful creature in the world. I know all mothers and fathers feel that way. Yes, he's just gorgeous.
22 [on the influence of Shameless (2004) in career] It was the first time I'd been in anything that was a commercial success. I'd worked very happily on projects up until then, but in terms of commercial profile, it changed things. Ironically, all the classical theatre work I did didn't get me The Virgin Queen (2005). Shameless did.
23 [on working on Shameless (2004)] We were living with the young 'uns, in the same block of flats, and because I was playing someone younger, I felt a bit frothy... Manchester's a great city to be in, and none of us were married with kids, so we all had a ball.
24 [on the disciplined atmosphere at the Drama Centre] There were all these rules you had to obey, often for intangible reasons. I was always receiving these letters saying that if I didn't get my s--- together I'd be out. We used to call Central [School of Arts and Drama] Butlin's and they used to call us "the Trauma Centre". It was very tough on women.
25 [on her time at the Drama Centre in north London] I lost my virginity. I fell in love. I thought, "This is great. It fits."
26 [on being shy] If you'd asked me to talk to a boy I'd have shat myself. Boys, friends, I didn't have any of that.
27 I don't tend to get asked to do the same thing. I thought after I played Fiona [in Shameless (2004)], "Here we go..." But it's like a fruit machine, I never know what's going to come out.
28 In theatre, there's the director, the writer, and below them the actor. In film, it's the actors who are most important. That goes against the grain for me. It's been amazing for me to see the self-confidence of actors who insist on having control, because it's going to be their faces 20ft high in the posters. I've been shocked by film actors - 25 and under - having such confidence and cockiness to rewrite a scene. My background is more about the director being in control. It's all about yielding. It's an oddly submissive relationship in which you're moulded, Pygmalion-style.
