Felicity Jones Talks Playing Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 'On the Basis of Sex' Amid #MeToo Movement

Felicity Jones strikes a stunning pose on the cover of the latest issue of Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine, PorterEdit!

Here’s what the 35-year-old Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actress had to share with the mag:

On why her new movie On the Basis of Sex feels timely in the current political climate: “We were filming it in the midst of the beginning of the #MeToo movement, and since then, with everything that’s happened with the Supreme Court, [Ruth Bader Ginsburg's] story feels even more pertinent.”

On being more conscious of the roles she chooses and being inspired by Reese Witherspoon producing Big Little Lies: “When you start out, you’re just trying to pay the rent, so you’re taking whatever comes along. But in the last few years, I’ve felt particularly inspired by people like Reese Witherspoon producing Big Little Lies, which shifted the cultural landscape. In many ways, I believe it allowed the #MeToo movement to have such a hold. […] We actors are circus performers, we’re carnival folk. But we can do it with a sense of what is relevant. Storytelling can shift collective consciousness.”

On how starring in Rogue One has changed her public profile:Star Wars definitely shifted things. I never set out to be famous; it’s been a by-product of doing something that I love. I want to put relevant and entertaining stories out into the world, but this is the other side of it. And I think you just have to enjoy it – you can’t turn around and start complaining.”
