They met while he was directing TheRemake of ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'' in 2001, eventually marrying and having two children together until December 2014, when they announced their intentions to separate. Before that, she was briefly Creator/KennethBranagh's girlfriend/leading lady; although they only made one film during the relationship (not counting ''Mary Shelley's Frankenstein'', which was made before they got together).

* TypeCasting: Once upon a time, she was most famous for playing rosy-cheeked ingénues?[[note]]Well, not so much [[{{Hamlet}} Ophelia...]][[/note]] [[PlayingAgainstType Breaking out of one type]] (read: ''Film/FightClub'') led to it becoming her new type!
** With hindsight, her performance as the scheming Kate Croy in 1997's ''The Wings of the Dove'' -- complete with a healthy dose of {{Fanservice}} -- was the moment that critics noticed that she was starting to rise above typecasting. ''Fight Club'', two years later, merely sealed the deal, albeit with a resounding slam.
** Her role in the live action version of ''Cinderella'' seems to be this. She's playing the FairyGodmother, without a touch of irony.
** PlayingWithCharacterType: Her portrayal of Elizabeth in ''Film/MaryShelleysFrankenstein'' is sort of a merger of her two well-known types (before her second one had been established).
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Was nearly cast as Sarah in Creator/JimHenson's ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''. Was also the first choice for Bess in ''Film/BreakingTheWaves'' but dropped out due to personal problems with the film's ending. She was one of the actresses considered for the lead role in [[Literature/BridgetJones Bridget Jones's Diary]], so if she had that role she could've starred in two movies with Creator/ColinFirth as her paramour.

* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Some of her roles have her playing very nasty, cruel and unlikeable characters (''Film/FightClub'' and ''Film/HarryPotter'' stand out). In real life, she seems to be none of those things.

* EvilIsSexy: Several of her roles.
* FakeAmerican: In ''Film/FightClub'', ''Film/BigFish'', ''Film/DarkShadows'' and ''Film/TheLoneRanger.''
* HideYourPregnancy: She was pregnant during ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'' and ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet''. This is why she spends parts of those movies hiding behind the furniture, and her costume seems to change size and shape.
