Tilda Swinton's Acting Inspiration Came From A Donkey

'Okja' star Tilda Swinton didn't catch the acting bug from Henry Fonda or Katharine Hepburn, but rather a four-legged mammal that unknowingly shined on camera.

"Tilda Swinton is cool" is the most accurate statement I've ever heard!
She needs to play David Bowie in a biopic now!
Ringo Brat
Ringo Brat:
such a sophisticated lady with an awkward, down-to-earth sense of humor.
everyone must love Tilda Swinton.
Margarita M.
Margarita M.:
When I feel awkward being tall,
I watch Tilda, and everything is alright again.
I was surprised she didn't even get nominated from We Need To Talk About Kevin
Jowana Bueser
Jowana Bueser:
The alien goddess Tilda has graced our lives with her presence once more. I love her.
Linds Tee
Linds Tee:
This interview was good. Usually hosts get thrown off by Tilda's peculiar sense of humour, but Stephen is riding it out very well. I love how he essentially asked her "how are you so cool?" I'm wondering the same thing Stephen.

_[mothership beeps]_
Tilda: "I have to go now. Goodbye.. humans.."
Coolest Woman ever

lol even her description of doing something "ordinary" was cool.
Lyra Foxx
Lyra Foxx:
Eccentric. Charming. Mysticism. Agelessness. And people said that no woman could play The Doctor...
One of my friends is good friend of Tilda's. She said she can sit and talk to her for hours about any topic. An intelligent, interesting woman with a wonderful world view.
Sonja Dawn
Sonja Dawn:
The main part of why she is so cool is, she doesn't think about it and doesn't care about it, if she did, she wouldn't be cool.
Colson Barnhart
Colson Barnhart:
I love her, i think she was the highlight of Constantine, one of my favorite films.

I’m a simple woman, I see Tilda Swinton and I click.
Tilda can rock a suit like no one else can
Oh yeah, Tilda Swinton is definitely almost THE favorite of my favorite actors!
Such a unique woman, of looks (why; she is almost otherworldly), as well as of character.

Thank you for doing this interview with her, Colbert.
JuanJo Calva
JuanJo Calva:
Conan's sister is looking fine.
John Wesson
John Wesson:
I like how she talks about her director. Very loyal.
Yeah, she's so talented and etheral, she can only be otherwordly.
Leonardo Diaz
Leonardo Diaz:
Finally some interview with a host that really knows tilda or did a great search about her. I mean, he even can talk about everything she has done, because she's the coolest person alive. And i think they could talk for hours, and Stephen will still looks fascinated for TILDA!
He forgot ORLANDO ..she was AMAZING in that movie!!! Go watch that movie, People!!! She was F'ing AMAZING and Hilarious in Trainwreck!!! xoxo
Lainie Medina
Lainie Medina:
She's the most interesting idividual both physically
and intelectually.
I first saw her in the film We Need to Talk About Kevin, and her performance was just beautiful. This interview was really good, she seems like a down-to-earth person. It makes me want to learn more about her other roles.
As a Nairnite, 6min 55 secs makes my day.
Okja. That shot in the clip with Tilda Swinton's hands in front of her face... it's good.
She's so cool. Extraordinary presence when u have her on the couch of a show.
Toribio Hechanova
Toribio Hechanova:
I really love Tilda playing unhinged characters.
Alice Bz
Alice Bz:
I think Tilda got stunned for a moment there when Stephen genuinely said "You're very cool", haha

Alien queen tilda swinton shes the coolest god
Hiago de Carvalho
Hiago de Carvalho:
One of the greatest actresses of all time, and works with excellent directors!
she just exudes intelligence and worldliness, and the slight insinuations of bubbly androgyny are quite tantalizing.
She's the arthouse queen! I've been to the highlands of Scotland, but never to Nairn, will have to check it out next time I go! Au Hasard Balthasar is a great inspiration.

Cool people dont need to act cool. Cool people just do their shit

Gotta love that British humor
I love Tilda so much
soufiane bakkal
soufiane bakkal:
you forgot "only lovers left alive"
O D:
exceptionally beautiful! Met her once in a techno club in Berlin or rather saw her from the distance as the room around her was glowing and then she and her entourage was gone in two seconds
Annie Burke
Annie Burke:
My favorite character "look," she has had is without a doubt Eve, her vampire role in Only Lovers Left Alive. With the long blonde hair, white leather jacket, pants, boots, leather gloves, and black sunglasses. It's probably because I tend to love wearing boots, jackets, and jeans a lot myself.
Stephanie Murray
Stephanie Murray:
She stays near my mum in Scotland and I met her in Paris when I had to dress her and she is nice, intimidating but down to earth.
I liked her in Orlando!!! Great actress
She lives in the highlands, so She is a Highlander.
Oh hey, Stephen, I know you're on a schedule (perhaps one that's too tight for anyone's good), but it's rude to cut off your guest when she's talking. It's just a few more seconds, 30 at most, and you're already closing. Let her finish her piece, damn it. Now we will never get to know what she's trying to say, and in such emphasising tone as well, when you're introducing your commercial break!
<3 Tilda Swinton <3 Thank you for your performances.

They say the fastest town in Switzerland is Nyonnnnnnnn
She is SO ICONIC. I literally love her. I’ve never wanted to be related to someone so bad
eve escobar
eve escobar:
When she said she was Scottish, I had no idea she was European when I first saw the movie and I'm like wow she really really sold that character she was playing but now... I can say I've been bewitched.
Allan Soriano Morales
Allan Soriano Morales:
Wouldn't it be great to see Tilda, Meryl and Cate Blanchet in one movie and watch them EAT EACH OTHER OUT?! 😍😍😍
David Mayorga
David Mayorga:
What a queen 👑
I absolutely love her!
Oh stephen, all that filmography and no mention of her collab with Derek Jarman?
Lorni Lula
Lorni Lula:
I feel like she and Cate Blanchett should be in movie together being frenemies or something.

The constantine women(gabriel) I love her ever since.
She is such a brilliant actress, love her!
How can you be so sophisticated and down to earth at the same time? She's my biggest idol. I like how awkward yet confident she is.
Tilda Swinton is one of those gifted folks that we should be glad visits our planet on occasion, much like David Bowie. We need more of them.
Iron Fan
Iron Fan:
Stephen wasn't lying... she is cool AS FUCK, dude.
"I often forget you're european, cause you're such a great actress".
Why did no one pick up on that burn?

In case you missed it, the movie is called Au hasard Balthazar

Wired Weird
Wired Weird:
Was Stephen aware @ 4:26 that David Byrne (Talking Heads) is also from Tilda's bonnie Scotland. Possibly a coincidence?
First Gan
First Gan:
Great job, interview felt more relaxed and smooth.

Weendy Lry:
The perfect candidate to potray Mrs Sigsby in The Institute
Jack of Shadows
Jack of Shadows:
Watch her in 'Orlando'. She starts off as a young courtier [male, of course.. since when did Elizabeth enjoy the company of attractive women? especially the older she got?] whom Elizabeth I takes a shine to in her final years. Then Elizabeth I dies and.. well, it's an unusual movie.
Think it was made in the 1990s.

And, of course, she was great in 'Triptank'.
