Plus you learn how to really manipulate people and prey on their fears and insecurities, stuff that’s very useful for modern life. Not that I’ll be putting into practice, I wouldn’t have the talent.” Meeting the South African Oscar-winner, it’s not her statuesque looks or her imposing presence that stands out. It’s actually her laidback sense of humour.
