The Zombieland actress did her best to talk about her heartbreaking scene without spoiling too much of the plot. She said, “Well, just in the end—I don’t want to give anything away—but I have to be a little bit aggressive in the end with a bunny."
"I cried my eyes out for about an hour,” she confessed.
Though her production crew attempted to coach her through the on-screen moment, she was still overcome with emotion. She explained. "They sort of talked me through it and how it would be a gentle and okay thing but, no it's very, very upsetting. Any idea of ever harming an animal in any way is crushing to me."
The 29-year-old was also quick to assure future viewers that no adorable furry creatures were actually harmed in the making of the film. "The bunny was totally fine," she said.
The Favourite takes place in 18th century England and follows the relationship between Queen Anne and Sarah Churchill. It also highlights the rivalry that happens as a result of the arrival of Sarah’s cousin Abigail.
