Quotes

  • "I had to kiss Megan Fox in Jennifer's Body, and it was not very comfortable at all. I did it because that was what the story was about, but it's awkward being with a women in that way, trying to make it look natural. I had to do it again with Julianne Moore in Chloe and somehow it was easier with her, but it still felt really strange."
  • "Hollywood is just like high school. The popular people only like the other popular people. And the thing is, some people aren't nice - or they're nice, but only to your face, not elsewhere."
  • "I just love to act and be on the set. I want to make acting my life and get really good roles."
  • "I like all the men Laura Linney gets to act with. She is such a bitch. Not really."
  • "I do feel like I've grown up. Living by yourself in two cities, having a relationship, the Hollywood stuff. It forces you to deal with things as an adult."
  • "At 11, I had a crush on Leonardo DiCaprio. Actually, it was not a crush. It was an obsession! I was also obsessed with Richard Dean Anderson from MacGyver and Indiana Jones."
