Opportunities continued to come her way. In 2012 the actress starred as Clara in the horror fantasy film “Byzantium”, and took the lead role of Gretel in the 2013 dark fantasy comedy film “Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters”, reinforcing her Hollywood status and improving her wealth.

#Quote
1[on her skincare routine] I really have to make myself take off my make-up. I really hate doing that, and brushing my teeth! At the end of the day, when you decide you're ready to go to bed, it's yet another thing to do...
2Sometimes it's hard to make action and adventure movies real, because obviously you have limitations with the writing. In Clash of the Titans (2010), I have this line: "I imagine you are sympathetic to this plight." I walked around [on set] going: "Are *you* sympathetic to the plight...?" [laughs] You have to work yourself up to it, a bit like Shakespeare - you really have to *believe* your character says that. In The Disappearance of Alice Creed (2009) I'm shouting, "F*** off, you c***!" a lot. It was nice. I can imagine myself saying that more!
3In comparison to many actresses I think I'm really average - when I got the Bond film Quantum of Solace (2008) there was this big hoo-ha about me not being hot enough, I have to say I agree - I don't think I'm in that realm.
4[on pressure from studio executives on Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)] They sent me to a personal trainer, wanted to get my teeth done, hair extensions, make me look like somebody else. And that's fine I had the tan, I had the hair, I went to the gym. I became the thing they wanted me to be for the part. But I don't agree with what they think is beautiful because it's not me. Unless you're really famous and successful then they're going to bully you into going to the gym. It's a side of the industry that I find uncomfortable.
5I'd really like the type of career Rachel Weisz has. I have a lot of respect for her: brilliant, intelligent, a witty sort of woman... You know, she'll do a rom-com - not that I ever want to do a rom-com - but then she'll go off and do The Constant Gardener (2005), have a family, and live a quite normal life, it seems. I respect that.
6On one of the [2009] movies, I'd just done this big comedy scene, and all they said was, 'You need to work on your arms!' Hey, when you've had 12 fingers, everything else looks OK from here. And I said, 'But what about the acting?' And they said, 'Don't worry about the acting, worry about your arms!' I just wanted to say, 'Screw you all! I'd rather do a play!'
7When you put yourself in these huge popcorn movies you get out there, in the public arena, more than anyone else. But that also means that you're out there to be criticised more than anyone else. With Keira Knightley, she's brave to do her play. Because, for some reason, if you're successful in Britain, people tend not to like you. But if you're a successful woman, and beautiful, in Britain, you're even more disliked.
8On making The Disappearance of Alice Creed (2009): I wanted something that was getting down and dirty, and really not about how you look. I wanted to be, like, f***ing hair and make-up everywhere, just not giving a f***! And yes, I get tied up, beaten, and there's nudity. All the things that made people go, 'You should not do this!' But I put my foot down.
9As soon as I say, 'I can't go out in that dress, I've already worn it before!' my dad will say, 'Listen to yourself! Stop being stupid!'
10[on the set of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)]: When [director Mike Newell] first met me for the film he said, 'Oh dear. Can't you do posh?' I thought, 'I can't believe he's asked me that!' So I said (firmly, through gritted teeth), 'Of course I can, I went to the Royal Academy of Dramatic F***ing Art!'
11The minute anyone says, 'Oh my God! You're so amazing!' I just have to go, 'Shut up! Please!' I am normal. I have just one rule - don't believe the hype!
