Miss Emma gets her late ’60s sex kitten on for Elle.

On coming of age in the public eye: “There are all these actresses who have emerged in the last year or two, and they get to emerge as this complete human being. And I’m so jealous!”
On the importance of having life outside her career: “I remember reading this thing that Elizabeth Taylor wrote. She had her first kiss in character. On a movie set. It really struck me. I don’t know how or why, but I had this sense that if I wasn’t really careful, that could be me. That my first kiss could be in somebody else’s clothes. And my experiences could all belong to someone else.”
On her new film Noah: “It’s Shakespearean, what happens to this family when they’re put in this confined space for 40 days and 40 nights. It’s the end of the world – how these different human beings are dealing with the impact of that. Are humans good? Are we bad? All of these themes are epic.”

A little bit of Raquel Welch crossed with a little bit of Jane Fonda. It suits her. Even in sparkly cowboy boots and a fringed bra. You’ve gotta give her respect for that. Now if she’d only work on switching up her facial expressions.
We burst out laughing at the Noah ad we saw last night. Apparently it’s answering the question, “What if Tolkien wrote the Old Testament?”
