The ‘Spider-Man’ actress also revealed how she likes parts to feel like “therapy” between the character and herself.

Kirsten said: “Whenever I do a role, I feel like I’m doing therapy between me and the character I’m playing.

“Rose is very people-pleasing, not wanting to upset her husband about what’s happening. So she turns to alcohol to help her just be in the home, and not worry terribly about her son. But that isolation spins her out, so it was about finding what that is for me.”
