In an interview with The New York Times published on New Year’s day, Blunt revealed that she doesn’t care if her character in Oppenheimer is “likable.”

“For me, it’s never important if someone is likable. I just have to understand them,” the actress explained. “I could play the quiet desperation of the character, the restlessness and the unashamed flair that she had, which was so very fiery and exciting. And yet she was this very stabilizing force for him. She was his most vigorous protector. I think she had rather extraordinary qualities, as well as ones that really let her down as a person. She is abrasive and flawed, but I really sympathized with that idea of someone deteriorating at the ironing board, when she should have been made for intellectual endeavors that would have thrilled her.”
