“The fact I’m, like, a Hollywood actress – I’m like, seriously? Me? OK, I really did not expect any of this. I’m constantly baffled,” The Indian Express quoted Anne as saying. “It’s not like I’ve been trying to avoid making these movies (like Colossal), you just wait for the ones that really speak to you. And I felt very lucky because in my early career, I couldn’t have gotten a movie like this made.”

The 34-year-old star, who has 12-month-old son Jonathan with husband Adam Shulman believes in the movies she works on but says she also has other reasons for taking on a project than simply artistic purity. “I’ve yet to make a movie that I didn’t believe in on some level, but somebody asked me, ‘Do you do it to advance your career or do you do it for love?’ I can’t claim artistic purity. I’m very conscious of making movies that will allow me to keep making movies, because I love this and I want to do it for the rest of my life,” she added.
