On acting while in school:
“Some people do piano lessons after school; I do movies.”

On working with big name celebrities:
“I always feel like they’re just a name—like they’re not real at first. Then once you get to know them, you’re like, That’s Scarlett and Matt! It’s not, like, Matt Damon.”

On her acting method:
“I never really pull from experience. I just sort of make believe. That’s why I like acting. You can create or imagine anything. It’s not like I’ve fallen in love but I’ve had crushes and things.”

On her crush on Ryan Gosling:
“Me and my friends saw Crazy, Stupid, Love, and we were freaking out. Everyone falls in love with him after that.”

On her relationship with Dakota:
“I remember the first time Dakota asked me for fashion advice about what to put with what. I was like, My big sister is asking me?”

On dressing her age:
“I’d much rather look like a two-year-old than a 21-year-old.”
