I had just gotten off a plane from South Korea, I was incredibly jet-lagged, and I couldn’t take one more thing. I saw that photo, and I had to say something. That picture wasn’t linked to body confidence. It wasn’t a #BodyConfidence or #LoveWhoYouAre. It was done in a slightly voyeuristic light, which I felt was a little inappropriate for young women to see. … I would hate for young women to feel they need to post certain photos in order to gain likes, retweets, favorites, and male attention.… I wasn’t slut-shaming. It’s not about body shaming.
On posting bikini shots:
I do it because it’s a body-confidence thing. I posted one in Mexico. I felt good, and I was wearing a bikini on a beach. It wasn’t me sexualizing myself. It was with a beautiful background. When I posted it, I knew that there would be a lot of young women looking. So I made sure that it was tasteful…. I get called prudish.
On looking to playing rebellious characters:
Definitely. With movies like Kick-Ass, Carrie, and Let Me In, I was able to push boundaries at a really young age. … Now that I’m able to get projects funded, curate scripts, and make movies, it means a lot to me to go against gender norms. My biggest thing now is making gender-equalizing movies, where you can put a male actor or a female actor in that role, and it would work the same way.
On doing work behind-the-camera:
I like to push myself as an actor and an artist, and directing, writing, producing, cinematography—all these are things that I haven’t accomplished yet. They’re big life hurdles that I’ve set out in front of me, and they’re just waiting for me to take them on headfirst. So why not?
