Red Nose Day Actually: The Love Actually Reunion 14 Years in the Making

“I love playing Rick because he’s changed so much. The world has changed him so much. It is a truly rewarding role and continues to be. The moment I think we’re repeating ourselves, then I’ll start thinking about other things. But if the writers keep pushing him into different places to play the whole spectrum of the man, then I’d be more than happy playing it until my time is done. Until they bite me.”

“The longer I’ve been somewhat in the public eye, the more I’ve wanted – and fought tooth and nail for – an ordinary life. I’m fiercely proud of my work, and fiercely proud of my privacy, as well. I don’t want to wash my laundry publicly. Why court that attention? It’s only going to make one self-conscious and miserable. So in answer to your question, I don’t see my life as more problematic because I do my job.”
