On her Los Angeles social life:
"I would say I stay in more than I go out. In London we go out a lot more. I like to cook and entertain but I'm finding it increasingly harder to do so on a bigger scale because there's a lot going on. I do have a brand new Viking oven that is amazing; it cooks everything perfectly. I try to make simple food that I love. I always circle back to my Donna Hay [recipes]; she's a legend. And I'm into Ottelenghi: The Cookbook. It's by two amazing chefs, one's Palestinian and one's Israeli, and they make sublime Middle Eastern dishes."
On her role in "The Great Gatsby":
"I can only say that I remember seeing Romeo and Juliet when I was 16 and thinking if I could work with Baz Luhrmann, I would die happy. I know it sounds like a cliché but it really was a dream come true and you could hardly wipe the smile from my face on set for the entire time. To be in Baz's world—he's such a visual genius and an incredibly unique storyteller—was an utter privilege."
On growing up in Perth, Australia:
"I loved it. I really enjoyed my high school. I went to Memphis Ladies' College and I had the nicest group of friends who I am still extremely close to. When I would go away and shoot they would save me a chair next to them at lunch. They never gave me a hard time for being an actress; there was no tall poppy syndrome. No one called me 'Pig Face'."
