'I still remember the feeling that in this room, unlike others, that that was OK. Possibly even preferred. And what I thought then and I still feel now is that it’s because this room was a room full of misfits, outcasts, loners, dreamers, mumblers, delinquents, dropouts. Just like me.'
With several awards for her work capturing the blonde bombshell it is likely she will also secure an Oscar for her performance at the awards ceremony on Sunday.
