Felicity Jones, an actress who will soon be paid a handsome sum of money to appear in one of the most successful movie franchises of all time, has confirmed that this is exciting. “It’s really, really exciting,” Jones told Associated Press reporters, who asked her whether she was aware that she had recently joined the cast of Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars: Rogue One, and whether this elicited any sort of emotional response in her or if she was just, like, whatever about it.
“It’s really, really exciting,” Jones said, answering their question. The reporters then rushed to their phones and laptops, similarly excited to dictate the headline “Felicity Jones says Star Wars role is ‘really exciting’” to their editors. Opening the resultant article, we were excited to hear that she was excited, and scrambled to pass that excitement on to you.
Jones was also asked whether “she’s coming up with various ways to say she can’t talk about her starring role”—which is a fun way for reporters to say that, hey, other reporters might expect you to say something about this movie that’s obviously really secretive, ha ha, like they’re actually going to get anything. Those dopes, am I right?
“Absolutely,” Jones laughed. She totally does have to do that. Thank you for being so cool about it.
“I can’t talk about it. It’s really, really exciting but I can’t talk about it,” Jones said, deftly sidestepping any further inquiries—but also letting you know that it’s definitely pretty interesting to be the star of a Star Wars movie, if you know what she means, using a secret language that only you two would understand.
Later in the same interview, Jones confirmed that actresses who are competing for the same awards don’t actively hate each other—sometimes they even become “really good friends”—that her most recent movie, The Theory Of Everything, was “very special,” and that being nominated for an Oscar is “fantastic.”
