On channeling her inner Carrie:
“Everyone has something inside them that, if they want to bring it up every day, they could cry about it, they could be sad and live their life in just complete terror of your own feelings. And that was really what I had to bring up was all my vulnerabilities. All my vulnerabilities that I, even at fifteen, had learned to deal with and to put away and go, ok this is how you”re human and this is how you live everyday without crying and stuff.”
On the iconic prom night scene:
“It kind of felt like when you were about to drop off of one of those droppy rides, which is always scary because you know something is going to happen. And I”m like, this is so crazy right now. And [I grabbed] Ansel Elgort”s hand.. that wasn”t supposed to happen. We grabbed each other”s hands because we were both so scared.”
On her favorite actress” style:
“I really love Winona Ryder – her look in the time right after “Mermaids” and “Heathers,” that first year of Johnny Depp and her. They were the best couple ever – they”re like Romeo and Juliet!”
