Her interview’s pretty shtick-heavy, including one anecdote about feeling like an outsider (which you’ve heard from just about every celebrity at this point). And there’s a cute story about pining for her jammies, while cramming her feet into red bottoms for award shows.
On feeling like she doesn’t belong: “I’ve always felt like an outsider and I still do when I go to fancy events. I still sit there and think, ‘I don’t belong here.’ I feel like a kid at the adults’ table; like I’m an outsider, who got let inside somehow. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just that I see everything differently. I take all the glitz and glamour of this business with a large grain of salt. I feel very removed from it. Not in a bad way, it’s cool, I just don’t feel a part of it.”
On being at awards shows: “I just think you go to something like the Golden Globes, and it’s the most glamorous place you could ever be, but then you go home and you’re still like, ‘Urgh, this dress is too tight, I wanna take off these shoes and put on my pyjamas.’ At the end of the night, all the glamour goes away and you’re just a human. All of that stuff is put on, to a degree. It’s always comforting to know that, no matter what, at the end of the night I’m always home in my pyjamas.”
On her personality: “I’m not shy. I have a strange sort of combination of awkwardness and confidence. I’m actually okay with awkward moments. But it’s not because I think I’m so great. I’m confident in things other than, like, my ‘swagger’. I’m confident in my sense of humor. I’m comfortable in my skin.”
On supporting other women: ”It makes me sad [when girls are b**chy]. Girls get competitive, as though there’s only one spot in the world for everything. But that’s not true… We need to stick together and see there’s more to life than pleasing men. It’s important not to cut yourself off from female friendships. I think sometimes girls get scared of other girls, but you need each other.” – via Cosmopolitan UK Magazine.
