Speaking to the new agency about the premiere in London, she said, “There’s something about London that gets everyone in a good mood. Everyone’s skipping down the carpet rather than sauntering.”

And talking about her character Scarlett, she said, “She’s more like me than anything else I’ve been in. She’s evil, she’s crabby and a little bit bitchy all the traits that I think make for a good villainness.”

She also added, saying, “It’s so good to be bad. It’s nice. And I got paid for it!

“Now I understand how the people who play the Joker feel. It’s fantastic being the first female super-villain.”

The movie has premiered in London, and is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 10, 2015.
