I don't care if people like my character. I just want them to think about the movie's message.
I feel fortunate that since I started acting at the age of ten I've had lovely people in my life, who are still in my life, who are older and have been there for me in a way that is supportive, but separate, from the work I do.
I love playing roles that are physical, absolutely love. Whether it's just that kind of basic level of physicality or whether it's stunts.
I hate how box-office failures are blamed on an actress, yet I don't see a box-office failure blamed on men.
X-Men is massive, like nothing I've ever experienced. But great in its own way.
Acting is very physical, even when it doesn't appear to be. It's about the arc of your body's language through a film.
What I like about the film (Juno (2007)) is that it tackles an issue that we often treat as this really heavy, dark event and we look at it with a different perspective. She's extremely independent. She finds adoptive parents before she even tells her parents. I just think it's nice to not dwell in darkness.
