The Irish actress also discussed her current love life, which she admitted was ‘disappointing’ and revealed her hopes for the creation of ‘robot boyfriends’.

She said: ‘It’s hopeless out there. It’s really a disappointment. I’ve heard they’re creating these girlfriend robots and hopefully soon they’ll do boyfriend robots, so I think I’m just going to wait for those.’

Eve quipped: ‘You could just unplug them when they bother you.’

While her famous father is renowned for being one of the countries’ most successful musical exports, Eve admitted that music didn’t fulfil her in the same was acting.

She honestly told the publication: ‘I thought I was going to go into music, but I was terrible at practising. 

‘When I started acting, I realised I could spend all day long going over lines, reading scripts, doing different exercises, and it didn’t feel like work at all. Practising music did.’

Eve’s latest project is Netflix series Behind Her Eyes, which follows a single mother who enters world of mind games when she begins an affair with her psychiatrist boss, while also secretly befriending his mysterious wife.

The star, who plays wife Adele in the psychological thriller, said: ‘She goes from zero to one hundred, and I was concerned I wasn’t going to be able to switch that on immediately. I thought I would need something to get me into those emotions.

‘So I asked the props team to get me a baseball bat and a pillow, and I would just beat that thing whenever I needed to get really riled up. Before a take, I’d be like, ‘I need the bat! I need the bat!’ and they’d be running around trying to find it. It ended up being really therapeutic.’

Eve plays the mysterious wife of David (Tom Bateman) who embarks on an affair with lead character Louise (Simona Brown).

In the psychological thriller, Louise becomes embroiled in an unconventional love triangle with David and Adele, one that takes a dark and unexpected turn.

Behind Her Eyes is based on the best-selling book by Sarah Pinborough, and was adapted for series by Steve Lightfoot.

One of Eve’s most notable roles to date was starring alongside Sean Penn and Frances McDormand in This Must Be the Place.

Discussing the experience, she said: ‘It was probably one of the most terrifying experiences you can have as a young actor – I couldn’t believe that Frances was the first woman I was going to work with. 

‘But she and Sean were good to me and very much took me under their wing. It was a perfect baptism of fire, because I went right in the deep end and survived. Anything I did after that wasn’t as scary.’ 

As well as discussing her career achievements, Eve also touched on her ‘loving’ relationship with her family. 

She said: ‘We complain about each other all day long, but we’re genuinely kind of madly in love.’    

‘There was the fear that I would go off to LA and become some celebrity kid running around on Rodeo Drive. I think any parent bringing up a kid in a certain lifestyle would have those fears.’  

The Spring issue of Town and Country is on sale from 18 February 2021.
