What room are you in? -I'm in the garage. I'm in the garage. And my -- No, but this is so -- The garage got converted sort of to a studio, music studio, because my husband's a musician. -Yep. -But I've basically been told that I'm not allowed to touch anything if I'm in here. So, like, the terror. I don't know what all of this stuff is. But, like, he's literally been like, "You touch anything, I'll know about it." So I've kind of sat here like this in the garage. -No, yeah, exactly. -Yeah, so, that's where I am. -There's little nodules and knobs and things that you go, "Oh, if you mess with one thing --" No. -No. You know, I had to plug my phone in a thing, and he's like, "Whoa, whoa! What are you doing?!" And, so, I mean, everything is -- -Don't even look at it! Don't even look at it! Yeah, yeah, yeah. -No. It's the room of terror. Yeah, so, I'm in here. But the good news is that there's sort of soundproofing so you won't hear what's going on upstairs, which is I think my 5-year-old going completely ballistic, because it's bedtime and mommy's is not putting her to bed. Daddy's putting her to bed, so the whole house is in carnage. And I'm locked in the basement, so it's great. -Everything's great. Congratulations, by the way. You had another baby since I last saw you. -Yes. -How is she doing? How old? -She's good. Well, she's like -- She's a year now, yeah. And, you know, we went into lockdown when she was about 6 months, so she's had a very strange life. And, you know -- And that sort of involved my then-4-year-old, who turned 5 in lockdown, sort of running around her a lot, you know, because we couldn't go out. So she's running around her. And the baby, who I thought would be sat and very easy to look after for quite a while, at 9 months, just decided to get up and start walking. -No. -Which I didn't even think was possible, because her feet were like this. It didn't look physically possible. Her feet were that big. -I love those babies. Yeah, yeah. I know that. -There's little, tiny -- You know, big butts and, like, tiny, little feet. And I think at any other point, if we hadn't been locked down, I would have been like, "Whoa! My kid's a genius." And, as it was, I was just like, "Sit the [bleep] down. We are not ready for this, as well." -Like, "Come on. Just go back to crawling." -Yes, crawling. Anything. -Skipped over crawling. -She didn't crawl at all. Like, we put her on her belly to crawl, and she'd look at you like, "What the [bleep] are you doing?" -Like, "This is ridiculous. Let me show you what I'm about to do," and starts walking around. -Yeah, so it's walking. -We talked about your oldest daughter's obsession with "Paw Patrol" last time. Is she still in that phase or no? Something else. -No, that phase is gone, and now it's The Beatles. -[ Gasps ] Oh, how fun. -Yes. I mean, yes, it is fun. It's fun. So, she -- But it's really obsessive. So it will be -- She knows all of the -- Well, there's four films, which, you know, I'm a fan of the Beatles, but the films aren't that great. But we watch the films on a loop. So, "Hard Day's Night" -- she literally knows all the words to "Hard Day's Night." Every time -- Paul McCartney is her big one, and every time Paul McCartney comes on the screen, she just screams. -[ Gasps ] She loves them. -And we didn't even tell her that that was a thing, you know, with The Beatles, that people scream. But she just has this natural reaction where she must scream at Paul McCartney every time she sees him. -No way. Isn't that bizarre? -Yeah. It's quite weird. -How did you get her into it? Is that you or your husband? -It was not me. It was the person that this belongs to. -Yeah. I love -- I remember listening to, like -- Did she start off with, like, "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" and, like, go from there? -Yeah, we did a bit of "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," and then, you know, you think, "Oh, it's going to be 'Yellow Submarine,' and it's not, but her favorite album is "Abbey Road," and "Oh! Darling" is her favorite track. You know, I mean, she's deep in. She's, like -- She's deep in. And, before that, you know, last year, it was Kate Bush. And she was so obsessed with Kate Bush that if we wanted to listen to anything else, we had to pretend that they were related to Kate Bush in some way. So it was, you know, Bob Marley Bush and PJ Harvey Bush and, you know, all of this. Yeah, it's like sneaking the veggies in with the food, yeah. -Yeah, exactly. You know, you're kind of getting it all in there. So, now it's only friends of The Beatles. We're allowed to listen to friends of The Beatles. -Now, is other kids her age into The Beatles or any idea what -- -No. -No, nothing. -No. So, I think this has been a bit of a problem, because schools have just reopened here. So she's just gone back to school, which, you know, has been tricky, because at home, she's just been watching the iPad and having chocolate shoved down her throat to try and get her to do schoolwork. And now she's going to school, and, obviously, yeah, that's not happening anymore. So, yeah, but the other thing is that all of the kids obviously think she's a bit weird because they're not into The Beatles, and when she tries -- And she really has a lot of knowledge, so she'll talk about Ravi Shankar and she'll talk about sitar playing and she'll do the whole thing. -What?! That is awesome. -So, I think that's what we managed to do during lockdown was create a Beatles maniac, but maybe reading and writing -- not so much. -No. Hey, look, you start with The Beatles, that's a good investment. -So far, her record has been nine hours listening to them solidly. -Wow. -And, yeah -- Yeah, it's been intense. But she does actually -- At the moment, she's saying that what she really wants for her birthday party when she's 6 is a Beatles birthday party. And she wants it "Sgt. Pepper's"-themed and she wants to go as Paul McCartney, which I'm so hoping happens. But I feel like, you know, she's back at school, and all the kids are looking at her like she's a freak. And it's going to be, like, princess, sparkly, unicorn party, you know? -That's where I'm at, too. I'm at princess sparkly unicorn, yeah. But You could throw in a couple of ob-la-dis or ob-la-das. -Yeah. -Yeah. -The walrus man will maybe come into the princess-sparkly party at some point. -Right? Why not? -Why not? -I was reading you had an obsession growing up that wasn't as popular in other kids's houses. -Yeah. It was "The Godfather." -How did you get ahold -- How did you watch "The Godfather?" -Well, I was about 11 or 12, and I think -- You know, it was back in the time when we had VHSes, and my parents had the video. So, I stole the video. I think I'd watched it -- I really remember watching it through, like, the banisters or the stair and, like, being, "This is the best thing that I've ever seen in my life." And so I stole it and I'd watch it secretly. But so much that I actually knew the whole thing off by heart. I was, like, completely obsessed, and I lost friends over it, because friends would come over, and I'd be like, "We've got to watch 'The Godfather.'" And they'd be obviously more interested in princess-sparkly things. -Who did you like being? Were you Marlon Brando? Were you Al Pacino? Were you -- -No, I was Al Pacino. I was Michael Corleone. -[ Gasps ] -So you were slowly closing your door and stuff. -Yeah, yeah, yeah. And, you know, that kind of psychotic sort of quiet, brooding power. I mean, oh, I loved it. Oh! I mean, literally when I was 11. I mean, power-hungry 11, wannabe Mafia boss. You can see it, right? It's, like, obvious in my casting. That's what I should be. -Now I'm going to look more every time I look at your films and be like, "Oh, that's -- She's doing Al Pacino right there. I can see it." -Yeah, yeah. That's the Al Pacino moment. -Can I tell you? This is a real, true thing. This is before I was even researching you coming on the show. The last two days, two of my friends, separate friends, told me that they watched "Pride & Prejudice" and how much they loved it. -Oh, that's nice. -And I go, "That's so bizarre." I go, "Keira's coming on like today." I go, "I just had these discussions with two separate people about how much they love it and they love the direction." People were talking about Joe Wright, and I was saying how fun he is, 'cause I hung out with him years ago, and we had just fun. But I'm like, "It is great. I haven't seen it in so long." But it's bizarre that, like, you're on, like, all these different lists of quarantine viewing. -Am I? -Yes. -That's -- Oh. I mean, I understand it with -- Yeah, "Pride & Prejudice," because it's so pretty and lovely, and you sort of want to, you know -- We all want to live in that land, don't you? It's like, "That would be nice." -Yeah, you don't want reality. -Yeah. No, no, we definitely don't want reality. We want, like, you know, a nice party where everybody is lovely. Yeah, no, that's lovely. But it's funny, because I didn't know that, but I have been being recognized an awful lot walking around the street, and I'm not normally. And it's weird, because I've got a mask on, as well, so I'm not quite sure how people are recognizing me. But maybe it's because I'm clearly -- I'm on these quarantine lists, which is great, you know? -It is. I want to talk about your new film, "Misbehaviour." Would you mind sticking around for a few more minutes? -Absolutely. -Thank you. More with Keira Knightley after the break. Come on back, everybody.
