Emily Mortimer

Emily Mortimer

I did my homework and didn't go out much, and had a very highly developed kitsch fantasy life where I dreamed of being a dancing girl.More Emily Mortimer [07/26/2011 05:07:58]
I had friends at school, but I was never part of a gang and I dreamed of that sense of belonging to a group. You know, where people would call me 'Em' and shout across the bar, 'Em, what are you drinking?' after the show.More Emily Mortimer [07/26/2011 05:07:05]
I never felt I was quite the ticket academically. I always felt I had to put in an enormous amount of effort not to be disappointing. So I worked really hard, but at the time it suited me, because I didn't do very much else.More Emily Mortimer [07/26/2011 05:07:12]
I was terribly shy when I was growing up, I really wasn't confident with other people and I think I was always afraid of up or not being this very cool, amazing person that I wanted to beMore Emily Mortimer [07/26/2011 05:07:26]
So far I haven't really been prominent enough to get critical attention focused on me. So, of course, I fully expect bad reviews, but I will be wracked with misery as a result.More Emily Mortimer [07/26/2011 05:07:43]
So what I do now is to pre-empt that by making the up into a virtue, and telling funny stories about how crap I am before people have a chance to notice it for themselves and think maybe I haven't realised.More Emily Mortimer [07/26/2011 05:07:53]
I decided to give acting a serious, committed try, and soon after, I read the script for 'Lovely and Amazing.' The story was beautiful and honest, and the characters struggled with the same insecurities many women - including me - face. I didn't think I had a chance in hell of being in the film, but I knew I had to go for it.More Emily Mortimer [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Los Angeles is like a beauty parlor at the end of the universe.More Emily Mortimer [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I borrowed my friend's car the other day in an attempt to persuade my husband that we needed a car and literally this is true, in the first day of borrowing the car, I got three tickets and I rear-ended it.More Emily Mortimer [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'm physically completely mal-coordinated. My best friend used to make me run for the bus just to give herself a quick, cheap laugh because I definitely don't have that sophisticated cool thing down.More Emily Mortimer [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'm still shy - I'm no good at my children's parent-teacher conferences, and I'm slowly learning how to ask for what I want. But I now know that I have a reserve of courage to draw upon when I really need it. There's nothing that I'm too scared to have a go at.More Emily Mortimer [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I want any excuse to come home. My dad is not a spring chicken any more. If anyone says, 'Go buy a postage stamp in London,' I'll go and do it.More Emily Mortimer [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Lots of people there seemed to be in denial, in absolute denial, of death - everybody's pretending that death doesn't happen in L.A. if you do enough exercise and take enough wheatgrass and have your pill every day, you might not die.More Emily Mortimer [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
It is brilliant going to the theatre and being forced to sit and listen and think about life. It can be almost a near-religious experience.More Emily Mortimer [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'm just happy to be a film where for once I don't have to worry about my hair, because my managers are always complaining about my hair looking depressing in my movies. Which is true. I mean, it's true.More Emily Mortimer [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I am a good mother and I feel proud about it.More Emily Mortimer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm always sort of anticipating life being difficult, but on a basic level, that's sort of on the surface, on a basic level, I'm optimistic in the sense that I think it's all going to be alright in the end.More Emily Mortimer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Breakfast is my favorite meal. I cook a big one for everyone - bacon and eggs. I own a lot of eggcups.More Emily Mortimer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Doing press is like eating at McDonald's: while it's going on it's vaguely enjoyable - you're seduced by your own vanity and taking yourself rather seriously - but immediately afterwards you feel sick.More Emily Mortimer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I decided to give acting a serious, committed try, and soon after, I read the script for 'Lovely and Amazing.'

I've only half-admitted I'm a professional. I know I am, I've paid my dues, but one of the things I could do better when I'm acting is to really be rigorous and to think I know how to do it. To use my brain.More Emily Mortimer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My dad had this philosophy that if you tell children they're beautiful and wonderful then they believe it, and they will be. So I never thought I was unattractive. But I was never one of the girls at school who had lots of boyfriends.More Emily Mortimer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I did my homework and didn't go out much, and had a very highly developed kitsch fantasy life where I dreamed of being a dancing girl.More Emily Mortimer [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
