You shave your head for this film. Was that terrifying?
Everyone thought I was going to find it traumatic. They even bought me a bottle of vodka. But it was actually the fifth time I’d shaved my head, and Milly is a ballsy woman.
Milly and Jess [Barrymore] have some wild adventures. What’s the wildest thing you’ve done?
There are a few. Most involve nudity, nighttime, and a body of water. Interpret that any way you wish.
You’ve been in many queer films. Are you very aware of your gay fan base?
Yes, and I am most honored! When Muriel’s Wedding came out in America, two boys in New York stopped me to squeal about it. It was overwhelming—like, Oh Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore.
Wikipedia claims you faked appendicitis as a child and actually had your appendix removed. Your first grand performance?

Miss You Already is in theaters Nov. 6. Watch the trailer below:
