The British actress, 35, stars in the romantic comedy Run, Fat Boy, Run, directed by David Schwimmer.

HOW WAS WORKING WITH DAVID? On the first day, he got Star Wars light sabers for himself, Simon [Pegg] and Matthew [Fenton]. He got me a cashmere scarf, which was sweet, but I would have rather gotten down and dirty with the boys.

SIMON RUNS A MARATHON TO IMPRESS YOU. WHAT'S THE BEST ROMANTIC GESTURE YOU'VE MADE? Nothing you could print! It's not about the marathon. It's about being prepared to risk everything.
