Kristin Scott Thomas admits she fails to understand the current appetite for celebrity culture.
Kristin Scott Thomas knows a thing or two about typecasting in her native land. “If the character is cold, witty and a snob, they’re going to call me,” she opines.
What she finds less easy to understand is the hold two of her recent co-stars – Ryan Gosling and Robert Pattinson – have over other women. “It is rather extraordinary that I have ended up acting with these incredible heart throbs,” she says. “I have to say, I don’t get it really.”
The concept of celebrity also mystifies her. “It has caused an absolutely extraordinary idea here of what makes a woman attractive to men,” she tells Psychologies magazine. “Hair extensions, breast jobs, masses of make-up. God, it’s all so alien to me.”
