On what attracted her to acting:
I think I was 10 years old when I watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s and saw Audrey Hepburn on the screen, and I remember reacting to her as an actress and just smiling. I recall thinking, That’s what I want to make people do. I want to make people feel. I want to make people have an experience when they go to my movies that they might not be able to have outside of that. Films were a place for me to find out more about myself, which became very therapeutic as I grew up.
On growing up in the public eye:
I’d be foolish to say that it hasn’t been hard as a young woman who is trying to calculate her own personal ideas in terms of politics or how she wants to use her voice for the betterment of society. Those things have been difficult because society doesn’t really want you to be smart, put together, and well rounded. They want a story. They want a tabloid. Especially right now, in my newer relationship with my boyfriend [Brooklyn Beckham]. We’ll go out and there will be 15 paparazzi and we’re just going to a grocery store. We are real people and we’re having real emotional experiences, and all this is happening around us. Trying to keep ourselves in our own little world is difficult.
On if she will work with Brooklyn Beckham:
I would definitely be more than happy to be shot by him any day. He’s grown up understanding a lot of the artistic sides of different industries, from his mom’s to his dad’s to now his own as an artist.
On social media:
I remember when I first got Twitter when I was 11 years old and learning what selfies are and realizing when I was 15 that when my friends posted a photo of themselves in a bikini they got triple the amount of likes. I think it’s definitely been hard to decide what I want to show. People will post a lot and then they’ll complain about X, Y, and Z happening, and it’s hard to say they’re allowed to complain if they’re posting that much. You have to be very aware of what you’re putting out there on social media and how you’re portraying yourself. And don’t get caught up in the idea that it’s just for fun.
