1. "I lived in denial for as long as I possibly could. Until the age of 18, I would take the Oxford Tube, which is a public bus. Then it got to the point where the fact that I was on the bus would spread from one end to the other."


4. "My parents were always realistic with me about what fame meant, that basically it has these amazing upsides, opportunities, experiences. But at the same time, it restricts your freedom in some ways."

6. 'There's a whole new definition to celebrity now. I think that's why you see a lot of actors blanching at being associated with that word 'celebrity,' because it's become something that isn't really associated with having a craft."

7. "She could never wear all of those clothes and half of them were brand new and still had the price tag on. We've all bought things on impulse, but that's an entirely different thing."


8. "It's almost like consumerism as a form of kleptomania. I've got about eight pairs of shoes and that's it."

12. "The character is everything that I felt really strongly against — she's superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She's all of these things, and I realized that I really hated her."
