On her visit to Coco Chanel”s apartment:
“I visited her apartment a few months ago when I was filming “Three Days to Kill” [out February 14, 2014] in Paris. She had two of everything, and it was so perfectly placed. I came home and redid my room with memories of that in my mind.”
On her preparation for “Ender”s Game”:
“We went to a military boot camp and a space camp in Alabama. It was the most physical training I have never done to prepare for a role. We would have competitions between me and the guys.”
