I live in an adult world, but I'm a kid. I love the work. But I no longer have a group of friends to hang out with regularly.

I never thought of myself as a child movies actor. I knew I was a kid, but they weren't related. There was nothing I could do about being a kid, and meanwhile I was an actress, and I had something to say in my acting.

I think that everybody wants to create, to do something that feels genuine and kinetic and spontaneous. I think actors want to surprise themselves. When it's really good, you kind of transcend yourself, and that happens infrequently. Very, very rarely. You might get one or two of those moments on a film, say and sometimes they don't even use the takes where that happens. And I'm not really that moralistic about how you get there.

People confuse fame with validation or love. But fame is not the reward. The reward is getting fulfillment out of doing the thing you love.

Relationships are a constant negotiation and balance.

Growing up in New York City, I was always encouraged to question authority, and I think I confused patriotism with jingoism.

I've always very earnestly tried to do my best, so I just have to trust that and forgive myself for being fallible.

I was a very confident child. I knew I wanted to be an actress from the age of 5.
