Even on The Undoing it kind of happened where I just like suddenly was in this place of. There was sort of a disquietness to my personality, where I was uneasy and there was duress on who I was.”

“I have not learned the technique to tell my brain and my body that it is just acting,” she continued. “I go home and I don’t sleep well, and I’m not well. It’s that disturbing to me.”

When she learned about the news, she said, “I just started screaming, I collapsed on the ground, I was that close to him.” She also said that she had a fear attached to late-night phone calls. She said, “I have a huge fear of phone calls in the night now because I’ve received a number of them with that sort of news, my father included.”

She also brings her ex-husband Tom Cruise in the middle of the conversation and highlights his struggle that he done in several movies like Eyes Wide Shut. It’s not that easy as it seems to be, you need to transform into another personality in order to match the character.

These side effects are quite common in the Entertainment industry as when you become a star, you have too many fans but side-by-side you need to continuously struggle in order to stay in the trend and keep charming your personality.
