Fresh Meat's Zawe: I scrub up well
Fresh Meat star Zawe Ashton is pleased her character is so scruffy, as people are always surprised by her real life appearance.
The actress - who scooped Best Newcomer at the Cosmopolitan Women of the Year Awards this week- stars as hilarious party animal and tomboy Vod in the hit Channel 4 comedy. Zawe insisted she doesn't mind Vod's punk style, because it means she doesn't feel pressured to make too much of an effort the rest of the time.
Zawe confessed: "I'm never happier than when I'm in just some jeans and something casual.
"But what's really nice is people going, 'Oh my god you scrub up well!'
"So I'd rather be a person who scrubs up well than be a Bond girl who has to just turn up and look stunning. Otherwise people would be like, 'She's not looking great', if she arrives looking anything less."
