It was very revealing. Simon [Kinberg, director of the film] and I investigated not only how the disorder affects the person, but how it interferes with their close nucleus such as family or friends.
Beyond the film, in its social networks it visualizes and normalizes the treatment of mental disorders.
We must fight against the stigma surrounding any type of mental illness.

She is a convinced feminist activist, and you also share very political positions regarding the struggle for equality in your networks. Is it important to position yourself?
I believe that everyone has the right to express their opinions. For the simple fact of being an actress does not mean that you are excluded from expressing your opinion.

Yes, that’s the way it is, but I do not think it’s just a question we see in the actresses. Women in general have changed their attitude in this world. They are willing to fight for their rights, such as equal pay. It has been a slow movement, but it is improving and we have a long way to go: we continue with a lot of inequality in many areas and at work. For example, the equalization of salaries will cost a lot. It is important that we keep fighting and that we continuously reopen the debate. Do not stop talking about him.

Many have the mistaken idea that two women can not be friends, because they are going to compete with each other or, as a series, some sluts with other girls.

What character would you have loved to play?
One male! Randle Patrick McMurphy [Jack Nicholson] in Someone flew over the cuckoo’s nest.
What is the best advice given to you in a shoot?
Jessica Chastain told me to always be true to what I believe. It has taught me that it is not a problem to defend what is best for my character. He made me see that my opinions could be valid and that I could raise my voice to defend them. It was very special.
It does not give that impression, it seems a person with clear ideas.
(Laughs) Really? Wow, thanks, I did not imagine that they saw me like that.
