 I’m terrible when it comes to parking fines — I’m usually a minute late and the warden is waiting there. I don’t get let off because I was a Bond Girl, I probably get even more because of that. I’ve had lots.

 Occasionally, I come home and say to my fiancé [Stefano Mioni], ‘I feel really fat’. He says, ‘Will you just listen to yourself? You know you’re being silly.’ And I do know that when I’m home, but in the business it’s different. The only way that I could ever be a size 6 is if I didn’t eat. I’m not naturally meant to be that size, and I just feel like there’s a responsibility to people who aren’t that size to make that known. All I can do, I think, is try to look good. I have things made for me, so they fit.

 They want me to go to Comic-Con. It kind of worries me. I’ve had letters telling me I’m not right for the part because I don’t look like the girl in the video game! She really is this sex goddess. They’ve got massively high standards.

 This is the sort of movie I always imagined I’d end up doing. This is the sort of movie I’d go to see in the cinema. I wouldn’t get my clothes off for just any film. On camera I really didn’t give a s**t, but as soon as they said ‘Cut!’ I was like, ‘Someone put the dressing gown over me!’

 I did get punched in the face by accident. And the day before that I got punched in the nose, and got a nose bleed.

I had a bit of a moment – but it was my only one which I thought was quite impressive, seeing what I went through.
