One thing I got to do that was awesome was hang off the side of this Ferris wheel and do that stunt myself.

Some suggestions for you :

You take some creative license when you make a movie, and things can be a little bit different.

When I first moved here, I almost felt like I was obligated to hate L.A. as a New Yorker. I moved way too fast for this city. I walked everywhere, and I was lonely, too. It was a really hard time not knowing anybody, and you don't run into people the way you do in New York. You can go a week without seeing anyone.

I'm a huge fan of Steve Martin. He's hilarious, but he has this depth to him and this way of dealing with the difficult things in life with a sense of humor that I think has helped me as an actress.

I wasn't all that familiar with the 'Texas Chainsaw' franchise, and I knew who Leatherface was, but I had never seen any of the films, so I didn't know what the meaning behind it was.

To be an actress and act crazy is really fun for me, to be able to be acting like you'd never be able to act in your real life and scream and freak out. It's an interesting test for an actor.

I took Meisner for a long time. I use a lot of sense memory and, well, I wouldn't say Method, but I can't really avoid getting into character.

Following your heart and working really, really hard is the best thing you can do, and just try not to be too hard on yourself.

I feel like I'm still at a point where I have a lot to learn from watching myself, so I find that it helps. But it's always weird.

I always wanted to be a blonde, and it was really cool to do that for a while.

I'm not afraid of falling and getting up the next day with a few bumps and bruises.

I love to travel, and I think being whisked away somewhere for a vacation is a pretty amazing date. But, I'm really into the basic movie and dinner. It's not where you are but who you're with that really matters.

I love 'House of Cards.' I would watch Kevin Spacey read the phone book.

I'm a combination between extreme insecurity and extreme confidence.

I've been acting since I was 11.
