“As a little girl living in the English countryside, I used to go running around in the forests, creating my own fairy tale.”
“I'm drawn to roles that have real substance, that aren't just the victim, or the teenage girl, or the girlfriend.”
“It used to bother me - having bigger, fuller brows. I even plucked them once so I'd fit in, but I hated them and couldn't wait for them to grow back. Now, I embrace them. I realized the quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful.”
