"However, her love of food is something I can definitely relate to. I love food.
"I feel like playing Villanelle has enabled me to be more honest with myself and my relationships. Villanelle is very fearless and sometimes she's maybe too honest, but that's something I really, really admire about her."
While her character has been hailed as a style icon for her flamboyant designer ensembles, Jodie insisted her personal style is very different and she's grateful to have help for preparing for red carpet events.
She admitted: "I'm going to be honest with you... I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. I used to dress up a lot in my late teens, when I would go out for the night with my friends.
"I would wear six-inch heels and a little dress in the dead of winter. Now, me and my friends wear flats. You know what? I'm very grateful to have a stylist."
The 'Talking Heads' actress is grateful for the encounters she has with fans as they are all keen to talk about her work.
She said: "With regards to my work, life has changed dramatically. I'm definitely in a position now where people want to have conversations with me about different roles. They've seen my work and enjoyed it, which is a nice shift that I've sensed."
