The 49-year-old actress says she detests false modesty and would rather admit she has a fair chance of winning the ACADEMY AWARD for her performance in Vera Drake, in which she plays a middle-aged woman who performs illegal abortions in 1940s Britain.

"Of course you can believe it. You have a one-in-five chance of winning."07/02/2005 15:29
