On her character in the upcoming movie 'The Spy Who Dumped Me':
I connected to this character on a level I didn’t expect. The character is an actrice who is very performative. And I am that way as well. Sometimes I feel like that makes me unique and wonderful, and sometimes I feel like that makes me someone that people would rather have leave the room.

On preparing for the role:
I didn’t know what it would be like for me—being me—to be onscreen that much. Would people be able to tolerate it? In all of the roles I had done prior, I was more of a side dish, a wonderful creamed spinach. And the creamed spinach can afford to be as odd as the creamed spinach wants.

On if she is a perfectionist:
It’s not really perfection that is the goal for me; it’s more the pursuit of truth. If you convey something you find true and other people also find it true, you feel a sense of gratification unlike anything else. So I suppose I am relentless in my pursuit of that.
