    …If for some reason a woman was ungloved, proper etiquette called for the gentleman to remove his gloves before taking her hand, as it was discourtesy to behave otherwise.” — Glove Etiquette and Rules in the 1800s

    It’s really important on a period movie for the actors to understand how people related to each other then. We wanted to show the young people pushing boundaries. Like in the hallway, before Mr. Knightley and Emma danced, Anya really wanted to have her gloves off in the scene—normally she would have always worn gloves—so we asked Maria [Clarke, the etiquette expert], “Can she have her gloves off?” And she said, “Yes, if she had just eaten, she wouldn’t have put them back on yet. And since she’s so distracted by the way she’s starting to feel, it made sense. — Autumn de Wilde

    “Dark’s nothing to be afraid of. In fact, I’d go as far as saying there’s nothing to be afraid of. Anywhere. The strongest person in the world is the person who isn’t scared to be alone. It’s other people you got to worry about. Other people. They’ll tell you what to do, how to feel. Before you know it, you’re pouring your life out in search of something other people told you to go look for.Some day you’re gonna be all alone. So you need to figure out how to take care of yourself.”
