<.The two-time Oscar nominee, 34, shows off her sassy side as pilot Amelia Earhart, who comes back to life in the new sequel.

ARE YOU AS FEARLESS AS EARHART? Not at all! I'm definitely somebody who thinks about things too much and looks before I leap. And I'm afraid of flying! It was fun to play somebody who lacked fear and was living in the moment.

HOW DID YOU PREPARE FOR THE ROLE? I'm a bit of a detail-oriented perfectionist, so I did research on her. [The character] is sassy and fun. I work really hard to be polite, but I'm actually quite a bit sassy too.

WAS IT FUN WORKING WITH THE GUYS ON-SET? I was like their adoptive younger sister. Ben [Stiller] is a big Rock Band fan, so we spent a lot of time playing. I'm not as good at it, so Ben learned that the safe place for me was on vocals.

YOU'RE ENGAGED TO ACTOR DARREN LE GALLO. HOW'S THE WEDDING PLANNING COMING ALONG? I haven't planned it! I haven't had any time.
