The 27-year-old actress partook in a futuristic/comic book-like shoot at the hands of famed photogs Mert & Marcus while chatting with her "A Dangerous Method" director, David Cronenberg, as part of the accompanying editorial.

On how she's doing and where she is:
"I'm good. I'm in London. I've just left somebody in the kitchen making a chicken curry, and I was meant to be helping him, but now I'm not. [laughs]"
On liking to get lost in the movies like everyone else:
“I hate knowing too much when I’m going to the cinema. I don’t want to know that the actor has just gone through a divorce. I don’t want to know that the person is an alcoholic.”
On whether she thinks people can let go of her as a celebrity and focus on her as an actress:
“I don't really know . . . I think I'd be quite surprised if they could let go of all of that. I don't really think there's a real want to . . . I know with A Dangerous Method people liked the spanking an awful lot. [laughs] But I'm not quite sure. It's weird, though, with the spanking. When we were in Venice, I didn't get asked about it once in however many days we were there.”
