You play Stephen Hawking’s wife, Jane, in The Theory of Everything— intimidating?

I was completely in awe of her after reading her book. So when I met her, it was a little bit daunting. (For more on the film, see p. 48.)

Given the heady topic, we must ask: What’s the most intellectual thing you know?

Oh God, you put me on the spot! I know a few capital cities—does that count?

You are rumored to be the villain in The Amazing Spider-Man 3 – true?

I have no idea. I’d love to continue [in the series], but I know as much as you.
