Thandie Newton, 40, stars in DirecTV’s new drama series Rogue and chatted with PEOPLE this week about “one last thing” …

Last injury I sustained
The other day I was using a curling iron and I accidentally put it on my leg. I’ve got this huge burn now. This is the second time I’ve managed to burn a part of my anatomy. Years ago I burned my nipple while flat-ironing my hair. My nipple was burnt black!

Last time I said ‘I love you’
To my daughters [Ripley, 12, and Nico, 8] when they went to school this morning. It’s not something that I just pepper at every situation. It’s full-on attention and eye contact when I say it.

Last guilty pleasure
I recently had movie theater popcorn, but I’ve been known to pop my own at home and take it with me. It’s excruciatingly embarrassing for my children.

Last time I drank too much
At the Golden Globes. My husband’s [Ol Parker] movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which he wrote, was nominated, and I watched the show with [model] Liberty Ross. We drank champagne and made lots of noise. I left L.A. and haven’t drunk a drop since.
