    ‘It’s deeply uncomfortable and it is complicated, which is what I wanted to make,’ she said, according to The Daily Telegraph.

    ‘The role entered my psyche in a way that I didn’t want it to, but it just did. 

    ‘I was lucky that I have Keith (Urban), who I could go home to and who is very solid.’
