"I don’t find that my process as an actor is really anyone else’s business. I mean there’s that awesome quote where Joanne Woodward said, 'Acting is like sex: you should do it, not talk about it.'”
I shouldn’t be the superhero’s girlfriend. I should be the superhero.
I really like being thrown into the unknown and then finding my way. I don’t want to show someone something. I want people to watch me find something.
If acting has taught me anything, it’s just that if you stop thinking and just breathe through it, you’re such a better actor. You just have to do the work initially and then trust that you’ve already done that work and not get too analytical. You have to trust that you’ve already completed that effort.

”You should have the opportunity to be more than one person with different people - because you have that within you. It’s not like you’re faking it. If everyone knows you so well and can always get a hold of you, then you’re stuck to this thing that people think you are. You should have the opportunity to reinvent yourself. Because you do. Naturally.”
I don’t apply [being a role model] to the choices I make. I feel like a role model is not necessarily someone you want to imitate, just someone you admire.
