I decided to give acting a serious, committed try, and soon after, I read the script for ‘Lovely and Amazing.’ The story was beautiful and honest, and the characters struggled with the same insecurities many women – including me – face. I didn’t think I had a chance in hell of being in the film, but I knew I had to go for it.

My dad had this philosophy that if you tell children they're beautiful and wonderful then they believe it, and they will be. So I never thought I was unattractive. But I was never one of the girls at school who had lots of boyfriends.Emily Mortimer
I was terribly shy when I was growing up, I really wasn't confident with other people and I think I was always afraid of up or not being this very cool, amazing person that I wanted to be.Emily Mortimer
