Whenever I’m in theatre situations I will go out of my way not to talk about my father, but in the film world I can be really proud of my family and say, ‘You know what: my dad’s a really, really famous theatre director,’ because nobody has any idea.
I used to have the most visceral response to having my photo taken. I felt like instantly bursting into tears and running out of the room. I hated all the attention, which is such a stupid thing for an actor to say.

To read a character I’m not sympathizing with is generally quite a good, attractive proposition because I’ve got somewhere to go, I’ve got work to do, to try to understand why they behave like they behave, to relate entirely and understand them and to be completely emotionally connected. That is much more fun 99 percent of the time.
One of the great things about the ‘Iron Man’ franchise is that they employ fascinating actors who don’t necessarily do action movies. Before ‘Iron Man’ you didn’t associate Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow with those kinds of films. There’s an emphasis on repartee and wit.
I would say that maybe directors who act as well are easier with actors. I’m not saying that all directors have this, but sometimes you’ll come across a director who sort of looks at an actor a bit like a kind of untrained horse that’s been let out of the stable, like they might buck him.
