Felicity Jones may be the picture of propriety on the red carpet, but when she’s shooting a movie…
It turns out she’s a bit of a swearer!
“I haven’t cursed for ages,” she mused demurely to Erin Lim while taking the E!Q in 42 at the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story junket. “Oh,” she then recalled, “I curse a lot on set. A lot.”
Just how much may be best communicated by her expression in our video Q&A.
Other than that, the Oscar-nominated actress was pretty darn sweet, as expected, from her picks for favorite emoji to her very organic-sounding use of the word “golly.”
Just as Star Wars: The Force Awakens was still fairly shrouded in mystery when it hit theaters last year, so arrives Rogue One, in which Jones plays…
Well, she plays Jyn Erso, but the details of her background have yet to be revealed. What we do know is that the role took a lot of physical exertion on Jones’ part to prepare for—and she thought quite a bit about Beyoncé during filming.
“I think she’s someone who has incredible power and is devoted to what she does, but she also seems like a very nice person,” Jones told E! News, explaining the inspiration she drew from Bey for Jyn. “I think that’s very important to emulate.”
And her description of shooting Jyn’s action scenes does resemble what a typical day in the life for a Beyoncé backup dancer must be like.
“Particularly when I’m doing these scenes, I get really into it,” Jones recalled. “When I’d get home, I wouldn’t even realize. I think the adrenaline is pumping around your body so much. Then you get home and you’re suddenly like, ‘Wow, I’ve got quite a few bruises going on here.'”
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is in theaters Friday, Dec. 16.
