Personal Quote:

[on the day her second Oscar nomination for Albert Nobbs (2011) was announced] "I just had my beady eyes on the television, and when Glenn Close was announced as well, I was very happy. By the time I had finished my day, I was completely exhausted, so we had a low-key celebration; my husband and I drank Champagne, ate cheesecake, and watched Downton Abbey. It doesn't get better than that." See more »
