Andrea Riseborough: ‘I get on a film set and brace myself to be patronised’


Meeting Andrea Riseborough, it’s hard not to be surprised and slightly envious of her style: her leather skirt, tank top and short blonde cut are completely at odds with the ’70s long-haired hippie she plays in Battle of the Sexes, but she wears both styles with the same natural confidence. “I’m just really interested in physicality and exploring. I have very little interest in playing myself, I do that quite well, I do it everyday. Yeah, god! That would just be really boring for me.”
