The actress, who counts the likes of Adele, Emma Stone and Taylor Swift among her close friends, has firm views when it comes to the details of her big day, telling Vanity Fair in 2016 that she won’t be having bridesmaids when she walks down the aisle.
‘Weddings rock, but I will never be a bridesmaid again,’ she explained. ‘There needs to be a bridesmaids’ union. It’s horrendous. If anyone asks me again, I’m going to say, “No. That part of my life is over. I appreciate the ask.” If I do ever get married, I don’t think I will have bridesmaids. How can I rank my friends?’
