On her love for Chanel:
“I tell you why I like Chanel so much: when I started off, no one wanted to give me clothes to wear. Absolutely no one. All the labels would say “‘Who is she?” But Chanel believed in me from the very beginning. For the very first red carpet I did at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival, they dressed me up in their very current season collection. It’s a massive brand.”
On her role in Rise of The Planet of the Apes:
“One of the most beautiful scripts I read in 2010″, as she calls it. She hadn’t seen any previous Planet of the Apes movies. I didn’t watch the Tim Burton film,” she says, “and as for the older Charlton Heston film – I walked into the living room once when my mum was watching it, I just laughed and walked out! I was little and didn’t understand it.”
On her relationship with Dev:
“I always say I don’t think there will be anybody who understands [their rise to fame] better than him. Not even my family – because they were not with me every step of the way, but he literally was and I was with him.”
On helping Dev develop an authentic Mumbai accent:
“Yes, with the accent, he was a bit nervous. But all I told him was, ‘Don’t do the whole “Goodness Gracious Me!” thing. That just makes it very comical and it’s not required for Slumdog Millionaire.”
