  • Quotes
  • I feel like it's paralleled my own evolution in the sense that this role opened up a whole new world of opportunities and was quite a challenge. It's been a blast though! Caroline became such a strong character this year and yet she's still vulnerable and makes mistakes. But she always picks herself up. I've adored the woman she's become this season.
  • I love Amy Adams. She is wonderful. Evan Rachel Wood is a blast. I am also really excited about Ari Graynor from Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (2008) and An American Crime (2007). I think it is an exciting time for young women in this industry. I am excited to make my own path.
