I love being Canadian. I think growing up in Canada gives you a world perspective that I certainly enjoy.

Some suggestions for you :

I think that you can sort of have your own personal journey and you know, you can just kind of apply that to whatever characters you're playing.

It's not good just to have life experience of film-making and that's all. It's hard to play a real person when you've been in jets and town cars for three years.

Freedom is such a gift.

Working with someone is the best way to get to know someone, especially if it's a creative endeavor.

Muscles. We're talking about muscles? They're like pets, basically, and they're not worth it. They're just not worth it. You have to feed them all the time and take care of them, and if you don't, they just go away. They run away.

I've wanted to make films since a really young age. It's always been my passion.

I don't like the process of meeting someone and you make a film and that's it. You think you're just getting started, and then it's over.

I just sort of feel like John Hughes movies are perfect, but they're missing violence. If they just had some violence, they'd be perfect.

I've lost perspective on what I'm doing. I think it's good for me to take a break and reassess why I'm doing it and how I'm doing it. And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does.

I'm just sort of making it up as I go along.

Hollywood usually doesn't have strong woman in films like that, and it's stupid, so for the most part they're usually being directed and written by men.

Some of the styles of dance in 'La La Land' I wish I had spent time on when I was a kid.

Sometimes I think that the one thing I love most about being an adult is the right to buy candy whenever and wherever I want.

It's Shane Black. He's a world unto himself. His world is so fun and crazy.
