On Worrying:
Worrying will kill you, man. It will...Eat. You. Up. But in the Bible, Jesus is basically like, ‘Chill out, guys.’ If you gracefully trust that everything is going to be okay, you start to feel lighter. You’ve just got to let go and let God.

On going to church:
I’m still considered a baby Christian. I have to learn my Word. For as long as I can remember, I knew something about my life was meant to be meaningful, that I’ve got something to do here. I don’t know how I knew, but I was sure I’d make an impact.

On not experiencing the bliss of her success in the beginning of her career:
I was depressed and full of anxiety. I think it was that pressure to be accepted, to be somebody. When you’re looking outside of yourself for happiness and validation, a mean comment on social media can wreck you. I was okay when I was on set, hiding behind my work, but when I wasn’t acting I was full of fear and doubt, trying to fill this void inside of me any way I could: drinking, smoking. It was bad.

On Black Panther:
I knew Black Panther was going to be impactful, but I didn’t anticipate it would take off in such a maaajor way. Oh, my God! I am so beyond happy and grateful, but it’s also overwhelming. I need to take some time off to reflect.

On Drake: 
He invited me to his concert. And now we talk all the time. I ask his advice.

On knowing her voice:
I take my responsibilities seriously. I recognize that I have a voice, and I want to use it wisely.

On what she loves most about America:
I love red Jolly Rancher candy. Cherry. They’re very sour. I’m not allowed to eat them anymore, because they color my tongue. Eleven is odd enough without having a red tongue.

On playing Eleven on Stranger Things:
The shaved head was a big deal. On the one hand, it was cool. When you’re bald, rain feels like a head massage. I’d walk in the rain, and people would look at me like I was crazy. I’d be smiling—so, so happy to have the water hit my naked head. But on the other hand, people stared at me, wondering whether I was sick. Some would even laugh at me, without knowing whether I was or wasn’t sick. It was hurtful, but their attitude taught me something about compassion. In the end, being bald was the best thing I ever did—being different changed my life. I wanted to embrace my baldness and, hopefully, inspire people. And, now, that’s become my message to the world.
