“I’m not the only one, a lot of actors I talk to, even though they love the process, seeing it again is really strange. My family loves the movie, but I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to go do a dessert’ or whatever when it comes along,” she said.

“There’s a lot going on there that isn’t PC, that isn’t perfect, that isn’t something you should ideally want. But these are real human emotions, and human beings aren’t always perfect. And there’s something about Natalie’s vulnerability, and I think Richard [Curtis] wanted a character who didn’t realize what she had,” she said.

“She didn’t realize that it was actually her boyfriend who was the idiot and there was nothing wrong with her, she was adorable the way she was. The fact that she to be so open to the most powerful man in the land about his little vulnerability about himself was a very human thing I think that’s part of what makes him human, and the fact that it’s very real “, she added.
