COURTSIDE QUEEN

ANDREA RISEBOROUGH LIGHTS UP THE SCREEN AS BILLIE JEAN KING’S LOVER IN BATTLE OF THE SEXES, A NEW FILM ABOUT A TENNIS MATCH THAT CHANGED THE SPORT FOREVER. SHE CHATS TO WINQ ABOUT THE PERSISTENT INEQUALITY IN HOLLYWOOD AND THE COMPLEX RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN GAY MEN AND STRAIGHT WOMEN

Team Winq are spread out in a trendy East London studio, surrounded by kooky props and rails full of punk couture and chunky Vivienne Westwood jewellery.

She took breakout roles in 2007’s political drama Party Animals and opposite Michael Fassbender in Channel 4’s epic, The Devil’s Whore. She worked with Mike Leigh in Happy-Go-Lucky and played a striking factory worker in Made in Dagenham. She played Wallis Simpson in W.E. Madonna’s much-maligned biopic, and Oblivion was her first stab at a sci-fi blockbuster alongside Tom Cruise. Next came a part in the Oscarwinning Birdman, and she appeared in Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals. Recently, a devastating turn in C4’s National Treasure saw her manage to out-act both Robbie Coltrane and Julie Walters as Dee, a woman battling addiction and mental health issues, in the Yewtree-inspired drama, marking another deliciously dark and alluring role.

About Winq

The new autumn issue of Winq includes a world-exclusive interview with Tales of the City author Armistead Maupin as his long-awaited memoir is published. And Booker-Prize winning author Alan Hollinghurst gives his first interview about his latest novel, The Sparsholt Affair. We also chat to Andrea Riseborough about playing Billie Jean King’s girlfriend in Hollywood movie Battle of the Sexes, and comedian Simon Amstell tells us about mixing stand-up with self-help. We look at the reality of gay life in South Africa, often held up as the most accepting country in Africa, and examine the reasons why Scandinavia has become one of the most liberal parts of the world. Plus we meet the gay man who looks after London Zoo’s gay penguins!
