Quotes

ON LIFE

  • “I love food more than I love anything that has to do with clothes.”
  • “If I could do whatever I wanted for the day, I’d start with going to the gym or doing some sort of workout, then I’d go to the grocery store because my favorite thing to do is grocery shop,” she says. “The night before I would have prepped bread, like dough, then the next day I’d bake bread and create a delicious meal, sit outside in the sun, eat delicious food all day with people I love.”
  • “There are ways you can be private – my sisters are intimately private and I respect that. They showed me that you can be private, but also accessible to journalists, for those reasons. It’s helpful and I learnt my value system from them. They’ve always had the greatest friends and so have I. People always ask, ‘was it hard for you to make friends once you started working?’ And I’m like, ‘what are you talking about? No.’ I already had those and the ones I made through work are great.”
  • “I know I’m a white blonde American woman, and I know what that looks like to other people, and I know what saying I went to a private school looks like to other people. I think that’s why people try to put on some accent and be a little bit tougher or more ‘street’ than they actually are. I think it’s very important not to fool yourself. You can be who you are and still be able to relate to different kinds of people in the world.”
  • “When I was 14 or 15, I was a really good volleyball player, so I thought, ‘Well, maybe I’ll just get a scholarship to an Ivy League school through volleyball.’ Then I quit when I decided to focus on theater.”
  • “I get way too much happiness from good food.”
  • “I also want to go to an Italian island and do cuisine properly with some famous Italian chef and, like, his mother.”
  • “Everyone is always surprised by how old I am. They think I’m older, but it’s always been that way. I’m the youngest of four – maybe you grow up quicker because you just watch the big people.”
  • “I always went to see independent films, they’re the movies I’m usually most excited to see.”
  • “I believe that you are only in control of so much. So whatever you are not in control of you can’t worry about.”
  • “I was embarrassed that I even wanted to become an actress because coming from L.A., with two older sisters in the business and a mom who had been a ballet dancer, it was such a cliche.”
  • “I would love to date a chef. I’d probably get really fat, but I don’t care.”
  • “I’m terrified of improv. Improv in a show or in front of an audience sounds terrifying.”
  • “What keeps you confident in a healthy way is knowing that everyone else around you is going to support you and teach you and you’re going to learn from them. I just feel open to learning from people.”

ON HER CAREER

  • “I auditioned equally for film and theater. The difference is that theater has seasons, while film, it’s always happening.”
  • “And at NYU, I went to the Atlantic Theater Company, and they have two main points. One of them is to always be active in something instead of just feeling it. And the other is figuring out your character.”
  • “Maybe I think about things too rationally, but my career goals are longevity and stamina. Working steadily, feeling challenged, and just kind of hunkering down for a bit.”
  • “[on Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)] Sean Durkin really wrote a complex character that really hasn’t been written, and that’s challenging. It’s such a smart way of writing, you totally understand the characters and I was just completely obsessed and in love with “Martha” and the script.”
  • “It just felt playful, like you’re playing make-believe. I can imagine myself during recess or before school on the playground being like, ‘I’m Scarlet Witch! Pow!’ To think of little girls being like ‘I’m powerful and strong and tough!’- that’s really cool.”
  • “[on doing her nude scenes in Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)] My dad, when he found out there was nudity in the film, was like, are you sure this is a good idea? Me as a person, I don’t even wear things that show my midriff ever. I’m a very covered-up human being.”

ON FASHION & BEAUTY

  • “Dresses make me feel a bit funny. I’m trying to get more confident with my feminine side. I just like everything to feel really easy and comfortable. Nothing fussy. I don’t like body-conscious clothing.”
  • “My style is a bit masculine. I’m not really drawn to feminine prints even though I admire them—when I put them on I feel like I’m playing dress-up in someone else’s clothes.
  • “[on her go-to outfit] Nice fitted pants and an oversize blouse tucked in—I wear the same three pairs of pants. If I want to feel dressed up I’ll put on a kitten heel.”
  • “[on her red-carpet ritual] I like to get a workout in any day I’m photographed. Your face looks more alive when you’ve broken a sweat.”
  • “Red is my go-to color when I’m not wearing black, white, gray, or navy. But I definitely feel like there’s a moment to do it on the red carpet. If I were in a movie with an ensemble of 12 people, I don’t know if I’d go walking out in a red look. I think it’s important to be in line with the other people that you’re working with.”
