“Well, the rainbow has a lot of colors,” she said in an interview with Yahoo! News. “I dig it. I like being in space. I get to play less girlfriends, more female parts, more women. So I find it meaty.”
The actress also admitted she has a lot of admiration for the directors that she’s gotten a chance to work with. “It’s a testament to how creative the people that conceive supernatural and science-fiction kind of stories,” the 35-year-old said. “They’re able to build something out of nothing by just imagining it. I have a huge fascination with that. Filmmakers like JJ [Abrams, director of Star Trek], like [Guardians director] James [Gunn], like James Cameron [director of Avatar]. You need to be really, really special to do that. So I like being with special people.”
Guardians of the Galaxy will hit theaters August 1, 2014.
