“For some reason, with this show, people want to hug me. I’ve learned, everyone wants a hug. Which has never happened with any other role I’ve done. Somebody said to me, just the other day, ‘You look like a huggable person.’ I was like, ‘You know what, this is happening, so I might as well just go straight in for the hug.’ People want to hug Emma for some reason. I think that’s awesome. If people want to hug me, that means I must be doing something right.”

“I think they are lovely… amazing. They make me smile.” - Nicole Kidman
“The only good thing about being famous is you get the chance to meet someone you may admire and they may actually want to talk to you too. They are real movie stars – we are just faking it and getting paid for it; they are the real deal.” - Jason Bateman
“You don’t have to believe in monarchy in the mediaeval sense to realise what a tremendous advantage they give. You would have to be tremendously mean-spirited to say anything bad about them. (…) If you brought back Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe to life you could not have had more excitement.” - Stephen Fry
