“Its the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I had to plot it out,” Naomi said about playing Winnie Mandela in the flim (via The Guardian). “At 21, Winnie had joyfulness, innocence, openness, excitement and an ability to fall in love deeply. But as people get older – well, some people – they close down. Winnie is a complex woman – like seven people in one. She was a grass-roots activist – on the streets with the people. She could only survive the level of brutality she went through this way.”

FYI: Naomie is wearing a Vionnet dress, Chanel jewelry, Burberry shoes and Rauwolf clutch.
