  • Quotes
  • I've never been the wilting flower. I've never been the girl who's subservient to a man.
  • I'm so fascinated by the concept of teen pregnancy for some reason. Not that I condone it or promote it, but it's just a very real thing in our country and culture.
  • So I always think it's important to allow someone to reveal themself. If you notice something about someone that you like, it could really tell you something about who they are during a time of trial. The truth will come out.
  • A lot of hard work has to go into your career, and preparation, and being your best at all times.
  • Everything is an experience. You learn something different from everything you do.
  • I did some pretty crazy stuff that I never thought I would do, for the sake of a movie, like surfing in eight-foot waves in pitch-black darkness, where I can't see anything. That still haunts me, kind of, in my nightmares, but it was worth it, it was fun.
  • I was like, WWhoa, I'm auditioning for The Hunger Games (2012)?" That's like my dream come true. That's like a Trekkie auditioning for "Star Trek".
  • When you're connected to the ocean, you really don't think about what's going on with your email or texts or any of that. You're just a lot more liberated.
  • I'm not particularly fond of the Hamptons.
  • It's been difficult to find roles that are independent, strong and self-assured; I always say I can't play the princess. I'm not a pretty princess! I'm a tomboy.
  • I feel a lot older than I am but at the same time I don't want to play too old on TV. I still want to be young. I still want to be 20 and enjoy this period of my life where I still have that flexibility.
  • When I was a kid, I was into psychological thrillers. When I was 12, my favorite movie was Thirteen (2003). I just really liked movies that showed an extreme range in acting. That's what made me want to become an actress.
  • If I had a crush on a guy, my tactic was to tell them I had a crush on them. And they always thought it was super-cute, so it usually worked in my favor!
  • I like that New York sensibility where you can be edgy, but still super-glamorous.
  • I'm at the age where I just want to experiment. You know, play a crime investigator one week, a pregnant girl one week, an angel of darkness another week. I don't want to define myself by any category, or age, or role.
  • Why sit on your butt watching Jersey Shore (2009) when you can learn to paint a beautiful picture?
  • As a Christian, I think it's really important to find a man of God to trust and be supportive of me.
