You played Wallis Simpson in Madonna‘s movie W.E. and now costar with Tom Cruise in Oblivion. You look completely different in all your roles!

For me, I don’t care about my [appearance]. I’d rather have a shaved head if it were up to me!

How was Tom?

He’s a fantastic team leader. Every morning he has a smile on his face and a cup of coffee in his hand, raring to go. He also has a lightness of spirit, and we were always giggling together. It was such a joy.

Your other new film Disconnect is about how relationships can be affected by the Internet and technology. Are you tech savvy?

I joined Twitter, but I need somebody to show me how to tweet! I do text a lot, and my mum may be better than me. She’s very good on the iPad and uses emoji symbols.

Would you consider online dating?

I’ve never tried it, but all power to it. Anything that brings people together is fantastic. I have quite a few friends who met online and got married. If I tried it out myself, my boyfriend [artist Joe Appel] would feel very uncomfortable!
