She’s usually styled one way (think Zooey Deschanel who’s also never given different looks). And she usually pulls one facial expression. But she’s trying something new for Interview, where she’s giving direct eye contact (instead of coyly looking at the camera) and cheekbones.
In her interview with director Cameron Crowe, the 23-year-old describes her first heartache and innate hatred of the paparazzi. If you remember, the latter is old ground since she complained of the same in New York Magazine back in June. She elaborates to Interview.
On heartbreak: “Like, within the hour. I remember being on the floor… I have never felt anything quite like that. It was so visceral. It’s like someone has killed you and you have to live through it and watch it happen… It was awful.”
On frequent co-star Ryan Gosling: “I’ve asked him to read a couple of scripts. I just really like hearing his viewpoint because I know that it’s never going to be tainted. He’s very much his own person. It has really just been scripts so far, because I only met him two years ago when we did Crazy, Stupid, Love, but it was like meeting a member of your team or something. I really like his brain.”
On the paparazzi after Spider-Man: “Of course, you do have that moment where you want to say, ‘I don’t know why there are eight of you here, and I’d like to have a conversation with you so I can know why you need this picture of me walking around.’ And there are people who start to get really self-defensive and preach to you about why you’re wrong for questioning it. But not everyone is like that. There was this one Hasidic guy who wore a suit, and he was following me around for a while in New York. He was taking my picture, and I was like, ‘What are you doing?’ And he put down the camera and was really nervous and said, ‘This week, People is running a story on you, so I need three pictures.’ And I was like, ‘Well, at least I know why you’re here.’ But then sometimes they’re like, ‘You chose this! Why’d you pick Spider-Man?’ and you feel like an object or a zoo animal or something.”
On being anti-bucket list: “I won’t make a bucket list, because I’m so afraid that I’ll die and then people will find my bucket list and be like, ‘Oh, she didn’t get to do that…’” - via Interview Magazine.
