I heard on the CBS Early Show this morning that Alice in Wonderland actress Anne Hathaway - whose White Queen is fascinating me much more than Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter or Helena Bonham Carter's Red Queen - has a surprising inspiration for her character. It's Nigella Lawson!
Apparently, there is a cooking scene and the White Queen cavorts herself in a Nigella-like manner, adding luscious things to some recipe she is making in front of Alice. Oh, that excludes the loogie she hurls into it at the end. Somehow I doubt Lawson would do that.
