'I've never felt comfortable with this, sort of, camaraderie of famous people. I've known Poo Poo [Cameron Diaz] since I was 14 years old. We just happened to know each other before her career started, and I was working in a coffeehouse trying to refigure out my life. So in a weird way, it doesn't even count with us.'
On making an effort:
'I went to parent's night, and I wore some lipstick and concealer, and I thought the people at school looked at me kind of differently. I normally come with acne, and Ugg boots, and I thought they were like, 'Oh that's nice, she made a little bit of an effort.'
On trying to do it all:
'I really had to tell myself, You can do everything, but you will have to do them at different moments. And you can do a lot in the same moment, but you can't do everything in the same moment. It was a good lesson that you will just have to prioritize and put some things over here for a little while.'
On being self-taught:
'It was prompted a little bit by a fear of I don't want to end up being 25 and not having ever educated myself in any way.'
'I try really hard to keep my Instagram personal and sweet, and use it in a way to engage with people so that I can talk about work stuff, but [self promotion] is so not who I am.'
