On Angelina Jolie:
“When she walks in the room, everyone notices her presence. She's really that powerful. I was nervous to meet her at first, but after we hugged, I was fine."

On acting:
“I always think of it as make-believe. That's why I love this job, and think I'll never get tired of it: You are creating something you haven't felt or experienced before."

On female stereotypes:
"There are still a lot of movies where women are dependent on the guy. We don't always need a love interest. We can stand on our own. There are so many movies where guys are alone, doing their own thing, so I don't see why we can't have that too."
