Adding to the ongoing age gap controversy,She was quoted as saying: "You do feel uncomfortable when you work with someone 30 or 20 years older than you. I felt uncomfortable when I was working with elderly heroes. You don't get the feeling like you are hugging your partner or lover, you feel like you are hugging your father. I used to feel that. I was new, I thought this was the norm. You are an actor; you focus on your part and forget they are elderly."
