‘It’s heartbreaking,’ says Claire Foy, the Crown actor, of falling in love. She said, ‘I can’t watch anything where people are in love with one other.’
Love may be ‘heartbreaking’ for Claire Foy, who has spoken out about her thoughts about it.
Star of the upcoming BBC series “A Very British Scandal”, Elizabeth McGovern recently said in an interview: ‘I simply find the whole loving-people thing heartbreaking; I don’t really get what all this fuss is about. It’s excruciating. The planet is in pain. It’s both stunning and depressing.
Her six-year-old daughter, Ivy Rose, is the result of a former marriage to fellow actor Stephen Campbell Moore.
“If I see anything where people love each other, I can’t stomach it,” said the 37-year-old after her 2018 divorce from Moore.
Given the emotional turmoil her character faces, it’s understandable that the actor’s wife and mother, who claims she’s fine with seeing herself in the mirror, was interested by her newest on-screen job.
Duchess and Duke of Argyll (Paul Bettany), who have a history of cheating and hurting each other, end up divorcing in the series.
A Very British Scandal, which premieres on the BBC on Boxing Day, is about a relationship and how much they damage each other, Foy explained in greater detail. Unpicking it and going back to the beginning gives you that feeling.
Why did these two fall in love with each other? When something comes to an end, it’s the same.
When they first met, they were two very different persons, and that is the grand lie of life—they don’t know who the other person is any more.’
“We do however remain as wonderful friends with the greatest regard for one another,” the pair stated in a joint statement confirming their separation.
Claire previously stated that her performing schedule was damaging to her parenting when she took a break from acting to focus on motherhood.
‘It’s guilt.’ The weight of it all. ‘It all seems too much,’ she said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar about combining her career and motherhood.’
‘It wasn’t until she had a baby in 2018 that she realized how much she needed to change, she stated in an interview in 2018.’
‘It was only after I had her in my life that I realized, “You need to sort your life out.”‘ Porter magazine quoted her as saying, ‘It was awful.’
