Personal Quotes (7)

I just want to keep working. I'm lucky to be working. I'm kind of exhausted by the constant need to brand yourself-that's a very prevalent way of living as an actor nowadays. I don't want to be pigeonholed, I don't want people to look at me and see one thing. I don't want to be a thing. I want to be a human.
The term 'free-range' doesn't do them justice. They're more like free-spirit chickens. I go down to the barn every morning with my coffee and hang out with them.
It feels strange, and false, to be 21, and talk about myself as if I have a real concept of who I am.
[on her role as "Emily Asher" in Beautiful Creatures (2013)] It was a great part... I didn't expect that was something I would get cast as, because it's so far from me. Not only did I not understand anything of her religious background -- because I'm Jewish - (but) I look nothing like they wanted the part to be, I don't have the Southern accent, and I'm not that person. So it was really interesting for me to get to really explore a character like that, and it was fun.
Don't be afraid to be ambitious. I don't know why that word has a bad rap and really, it's mostly just for women. All it means is that you're willing to work hard for what you want and love, as far as I'm concerned. So work hard, love what you do, be nice to people and be ambitious! There's nothing wrong with that.
Nature versus nurture- I think it's a little bit of both. It's hard to say that I would be doing this if I hadn't grown up in it, but it's also hard to say that I would not, because I do feel that it clicks. It makes me happy.
It's nice to be part of a generation that is taking more of a vocal stance, I don't think silence makes you safe.
