1. Told a hilarious story about trying to film a love scene with Eddie Redmayne during Pillars of Earth on a hot day when he was wearing layers of fake tan that he kept sweating off. It somehow managed to be both disgusting and charming.
2. Paraphrased this from O.G. feminist Mary Wollstonecraft when asked for quotes that inspired her:
“Taught from their infancy that beauty is woman’s sceptre, the mind shapes itself to the body, and roaming round its gilt cage, only seeks to adorn its prison.”
And said that it means that women are tricked into thinking beauty is their most important attribute and it traps them into not valuing anything else about themselves.
3. Said Stanley Tucci makes a mean martini.
4. Said she made Chris Evans “rehearse” the Dirty Dancing Dubsmash kiss with her “about ten times.” That girl is living her best life.
5a. One question started by contrasting the “flirtation” between Peggy & Steve of the first Cap movie with how Agent Carter makes it seem like Peggy & Steve were fully in a relationship and ended with “so how do you interpret that? I mean, did they, like, consummate the relationship?” And Hayley declaring “OH, THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW.”
5b. She said yes; then she wondered about 1940s morality; then she said she’d have to ASK CHRIS WHAT HE THOUGHT. (”Oh, he’ll say [american accent] ‘Yeah. C’mon. Definitely!’”)
