Denim shirt and pants (CALVIN KLEIN JEANS ESTABLISHED 1978), jersey turtleneck (CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC) and acetate glasses (stylist’s own).

On how she approaches life:
Everyone has to learn how to live in an environment that has not made it easy for women to claim their place, so I think it’s all women’s responsibility to step forward. My goal is that a girl will watch The Martian or Interstellar and think ‘I want to be an astronaut or a quantum physicist.’ It’s important to show powerful women who are good at their jobs because young girls need those examples.

On who impacted her life:
“I remember my great-grandmother telling me that women shouldn’t drive cars. I have such a strong memory of her saying she felt she’d paid too much for gas and ‘It serves me right because I have no business driving; women shouldn’t do stuff like that.’ I always thought you could do whatever you wanted to do, and then to have someone tell me that women were limited was disturbing. It wasn’t until I got older that I realized, ‘Oh, the programming starts so young!

On her legacy:
It’s not a bad thing to want to make your mark on the world, but I don’t think it’s all that important to have your name withstand the test of time. It’s more about what I’m doing right now and what I’m doing to contribute to making the world a better place, as cheesy as that sounds.

On her experience with fame:
I have a very strong separation between my personal life and my work. I know there are certain restaurants in L.A. or New York where there will be photographers, so I avoid them. I do my best to be as quiet as I can when I’m not working or doing press for a film. For the most part, people have been really respectful. The one thing I will say—and I’m not going to talk about it—is that the worst I’ve ever experi­enced was at my wedding. There were helicopters in the sky during the ceremony, and it was really shocking. I was like, ‘I get it. This is the trade-off,’ because, to be honest, I’ve never felt invaded before in this industry.
