After talking about how she wasn’t anything like her character in the film she talked about the importance of having just one person believe in you. “I have to say thank you to my incredible director, Bradley Cooper, for being that one person,” she said, “but also it would be a lie to not thank each and every one of you who have supported me over the years. I would not be here without you."

“I have no idea about this," she insisted. "I don’t even know where all these rumors began. But of course I’d love to do the Bond theme tune."
