Wasikowska added that she had been working in Hollywood on back-to-back films since she was 15, and found the routine gruelling.

“I spent 10 to 15 years, completely like, new city, new country, every three months, and it’s like starting school again every few months,” she explained.

“Especially when you’re younger, when you don’t have that base, I found that really hard.”

She added, “I didn’t entirely like the lifestyle of going back to back-to-back. I felt really disconnected from any greater community.”
