Brilliant, statuesque Londoner Rebecca Hall, 27, earned raves stateside as Scarlett Johansson's demure travel buddy in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Now, the daughter of Royal Shakespeare Company founder Sir Peter Hall plays a doting radiologist in the bitchy-but-heartfelt chick-flick Please Give. Here, the regal beauty answers the MC questionnaire:

MC: What do you wish you knew five years ago?

RH: That wearing heels wouldn't make me feel any taller. When I was 22, I thought I couldn't wear heels because of my height.

MC: How tall are you?

RH: I'm 5'10". I just finished filming The Town with Ben Affleck. My whole career I've been crouching in flats. But this movie had a bunch of giants — both Ben and Jon Hamm are very tall. When the cinematographer said, "Would you mind terribly if you stood on a ladder in the next shot?", I put my arms in the air and whooped.

MC: What's your favorite indulgence?

RH: Watching movies at home with chocolate, red wine, and blankets.

MC: Your favorite drugstore makeup?

RH: Maybelline mascara — the classic pink-and-green one.

MC: What superpower would you most want to have?

RH: Teleporting so that I could travel without having to get on a plane.

MC: Signature drink?

RH: I'm quite fond of Pinot Noir, but that's terribly embarrassing to say post-Sideways.

MC: What's the highlight of the best vacation you've ever taken?

RH: In Italy, a bunch of friends and I went skinny-dipping in the ocean during a lightning storm. It sounds dangerous, but it was exquisitely beautiful and amazing.
