On not making schedules:
“I used to be a big planner and had to have things figured out ahead of time, but I”m leaning to love living in the moment. Last night, I called my friend randomly and said, “Where are you I want to come see you!” It”s not a new version of me. I”m just embracing it more.”

On her relationship with Jamie:
“We”ve made a conscious decision to go out and live life. I”m not one to hide anything, but I don”t feel the need to comment directly on it… I think it would be a shame to not live in the moment and not enjoy everything that”s happening in fear of other people”s opinions.”

On her goody-goody reputation in high school:
“I didn”t feel the pressure in drinking or doing drugs. I wanted to remember the fun moments and not wake up and go, “Um, I think I had fun””

On Kristen Steward and Jennifer Lawrence:
“I admire how they”ve both handled the fame that came with those roles and their ability to step outside those roles and do other projects. That”s what I want to do: balance fun big movies with gritty passion projects I love.”
