“I’m looking forward to playing the meatier roles you get in your 30s. The early 20s can be a hard time for an actress – it’s always bombshell or romantic lead. The good stuff you can really sink your teeth into comes later.”
“Motherhood informs my work 100 per cent.”
“‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ is one of my favourite novels, my mum brought me up reading it, and it never fails to move me.”
“As a new mother, you’re so vulnerable and make mistakes all the time. I guess there’s more pressure when you’re in the public eye, but I’d never stand by and let anyone exploit my daughter.”
“L.A. is an intense industry town, and there’s a side of it that’s superficial, but I surround myself with the kind of people who don’t let me get sucked into that.”
