EXCLUSIVE: Ruth Wilson On Love, Tinder And Those Sex Scenes

Meet our gorgeous March coverstar....

For our March issue team InStyle  headed to a deserted warehouse in East London to capture one of the hottest British actresses working in Hollywood right now, Ruth Wilson. Photographed by Rankin, The Affair star worked spring/summer 2016's coolest cold-shoulder trend, confirming that's it's definitely the go-to erogenous zone of the season. She even loved the monochrome Preen sweater and skirt look so much that she wore it post-shoot that evening to The Danish Girl movie premiere. Now, that's our kind of shopping! Here she talks Tinder, relationship rumours and taking control of those sex scenes...

 

On female roles in Hollywood...

'To be honest, I wasn’t really looking at TV for America because I know the contracts and how long they are, but the film scripts weren’t good enough. There’s a very small number of women who get to do the best material that’s around, and there are probably only three movies scripts a year with good female roles in them. So there’s a limited amount of material to do. With television there’s so many shows led by women, it’s amazing.’  

 

 

On taking control of those sex scenes in The Affair...

'Personally, I didn’t want to keep doing sex scenes and blow jobs. I didn’t think it was necessary and I felt uncomfortable.’ A meeting was called with the show runner and directors. After which, everything, she says, was ‘fine. You have to listen to yourself in those situations. There’s still sex in it but it wasn’t expected that I would be nude.’

 

 

On those Jake Gyllenhaal rumours...

‘That happens all the time. I was papped with Jake and associated with Jake and it’s just assumed…’ she trails off. ‘I don’t know.I don’t give much away and I don’t want to. It’s not anyone’s business.’

 

 

On dating....

'You can’t go on Tinder. You usually tend to find people you’ve known for a long time. It is difficult. Just the nature of the job means it’s difficult. The fame side of it is one aspect. But the fact that you are travelling a lot, or you have to be away a lot. It’s difficult to maintain a relationship even without the fame aspect of it.’
