I'm not averse to being in big commercial films.
I once used henna to dye my hair brown for an audition, thinking I was being clever as it's all natural.
I find it very hard not to be myself and maybe that does attract attention, but I'd be miserable if I wasn't.
The amount of speculation surrounding my romantic life is astounding. It's strange how involved people get: invested and angry, really disappointed.
I don't even know what an 'It' girl is. As far as I'm concerned, an 'It' girl is somebody who doesn't do anything except go to parties and get her photograph taken.
I've made apologies to people I needed to, but I can't apologise to people I don't know for things they don't understand.
You want to feel that you can do something creative that you love without being picked apart and mutilated for other people's pleasure.

I just want to work, and learn from people I respect and admire.
For a number of years I was relentlessly pursued by 10 to 15 men, almost daily. Spat at, verbally abused.
