  • First of all, and we're going to talk about the movie,

  • but I watched the series that starts in May.

  • I think it starts May 12.

  • And there's only five of them, right?

  • There are only five, yeah--

  • OK, so I--

  • --based on the five novels.

  • So yeah.

  • --watched the first one last night.

  • I can't watch the second one.

  • I am going to be sad that there's no more than five,

  • because it's amazing.

  • It's a good story.

  • Yeah, it's--

  • Tell everyone what it's about.

  • So it's called Patrick Melrose, and it charts

  • the story of this man's life.

  • And it's a loose alter ego for the author himself,

  • which is a miracle, when you consider the subject matter.

  • It's a sort of impossible, I guess,

  • kind of contradiction in terms.

  • It's both a tragedy and a very rich comedy.

  • I mean, you've seen it, so-- but it's great.

  • Oh my god.

  • And it's so hard to play drunk or high without looking

  • like you're overdoing it.

  • I mean, you're so good.

  • Oh, wow.

  • You're just brilliant in this.

  • Thank you.

  • Every scene, Portia and I were just watching it, just going--

  • I just-- I want more of it.

  • I want more of that.

  • And like you said, it's tragic.

  • But it's just, you're so good.

  • Yeah, it's sort of a paradox.

  • It does 180 degrees.

  • It's to do with the nature of the deft writing,

  • the incredible director, as well, Ed Bergman,

  • this extraordinary author who's been bold enough

  • to share his life in fictional form with prose that I think

  • is some of the best in the 21st century.

  • If you like the series, buy the books,

  • because they're a whole other experience.

  • And it moves in a scene from a moment

  • of hilarity to, you know, heart-wrenching pain

  • and pathos.

  • Yeah.

  • Well, congratulations.

  • I'm so glad you're doing that.

  • So The Avengers-- this is your first time in one

  • of these movies, right?

  • In a big collective movie like this, yeah, the big ensemble.

  • And how was it for you?

  • It was weird--

  • I mean, fantastic, daunting.

  • My first day on set was with two icons,

  • with Iron Man and Robert Downey Jr.

  • And that's kind of unnerving, especially

  • because this character has to sort of stand

  • beard to beard with another egotistical narcissist

  • in the MCU.

  • And I have a similar status in the story.

  • So that was a weird thing to pull out

  • of a hat on the first day on set with Robert.

  • But he's fantastic, as you know, and very big.

  • Did you know anything about-- they're so secretive, though.

  • Did you know anything about the script?

  • I did, as has been much talked about.

  • And I think, yeah, it's slightly--

  • it's invoked a bit of jealousy.

  • I did read the script, yeah.

  • I did.

  • How is that possible?

  • This is your first--

  • I just took the pages, and--

  • No one else got a script.

  • I don't have glasses yet, but I just cast my eyes over--

  • No, how did you do that?

  • I read words.

  • But no one else got scripts.

  • I know.

  • And it was a hard copy.

  • And it was sort of chained to a person that

  • then was taken back on some kind of police transport over to

  • [INAUDIBLE]

  • Wow.

  • No, you have to understand.

  • Like, nobody in the cast got a script-- no one.

  • It was a super privilege.

  • But when it was pitched to me, what he does in this film--

  • and Strange is kind of--

  • he kind of guards the brackets of reality.

  • So that kind of covers quite a lot of territory.

  • And I thought I just--

  • I need a little bit more than my scenes to know what else

  • is going on.

  • Well--

  • So wait and see.

  • --then you've got it.

  • That's how you do it.

  • You say, I need more.

  • That and really good reps.

  • Yeah, clearly.

  • Those other people are changing their reps right now.

  • They needed to go to my agency, exactly, yeah.

  • For sure, for sure.

  • So you have done just about everything.

  • You've not done a horror film, right?

  • No.

  • Do you want to do a horror film?

  • Kind of.

  • No, I heard that you did, no?

  • As in, if somebody was saying to me,

  • what haven't you done that you'd like to do,

  • and I would be like, I guess I'd like

  • to do a horror or a musical--

  • maybe both, maybe a horrifying musical.

  • A horrifying musical.

  • It might be if I sing.

  • - That would be really-- - A horrifying sight to see.

  • Do you sing?

  • To a degree.

  • Uh-huh.

  • Yeah.

  • No, but it would be good.

  • Do you like scary-- do you, in general, like

  • to go to scary movies?

  • I scare very easy.

  • Uh-oh.

  • I have a rampant imagination.

  • But when you're in a scary movie--

  • Presumably, that--

  • --it takes it away.

  • Exactly, right?

  • You know it's-- oh, it's OK.

  • That's fake blood.

  • Right, yeah.

  • Right.

  • Although I'm still very susceptible.

  • Aah!

  • Oh, [BLEEP] off.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Oh, [BLEEP]-ing hell.

  • Oh.

  • Robert, you've got to stop doing that.

  • It's getting tired, but clearly not on me.

  • Wow.

  • Good.

  • I am still alive.

  • This isn't heaven.

  • Although it would be nice to be in heaven with you, but--

  • Oh, I'd love to be in heaven with you, as well.

  • --I'm still alive.

  • Thank Christ for that.

  • Yeah.

  • That was really good.

  • That was--

  • Yeah, that definitely frightened--

  • what else is hollow here that might suddenly--

  • I should know, this happens on this show.

  • I know.

  • So I--

  • I know.

  • See, honestly, now you've got me on a real high-alert

  • Uh-huh.

  • That would be great, to drop someone from the ceiling.

  • My nose is running.

  • I'm showing all the kind of fight-or-flight responses now.

  • All right, now, you actually handled it very well.

  • Did I?

  • Can we see it?

  • --susceptible.

  • Aah!

  • Oh, [BLEEP] off.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Wow.

  • It's just really good that I'm not

  • a trained assassin on martial arts expert,

  • because he'd be dead.

  • Right.

  • Or she.

  • I don't even know.

  • I didn't get the gender.

  • It was just like, ah!

  • Yeah.

  • I need to lie down.

  • OK.

First of all, and we're going to talk about the movie,
