On taking the Louis Lane role:
“I”ve wanted to be in a superhero movie, and this was my best chance – as some mere mortal. Let”s be real here. I don”t look that good in Lycra. I do all right, but I hadn”t anticipated that I was ever going to be cast as the girl in Lycra looking hot.”

On embracing her flaws:
“Perfect isn”t normal, nor is it interesting. Some of these actresses or public personas who are very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. I just don”t see the point. I”m just not going to be one of those people photographed in a bikini where people like, “OMG, look at Amy!” I mean, it might be OMG, but not for the reasons I want.”

On her looks:
“I have no features without make-up. I am pale. I have blonde lashes. you could just paint my face – it”s like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do.”
