Personal Quotes
[on people who watched her movies] It's very, very sweet when little girls come up to me, or when people come up and say that they've liked a film or that they've watched it with their family and been happy and laughed. That, to me, if I can help make people a part of a story, that's what I enjoyed most about being little was that I was taken into another world.

I like to wear as least amount of makeup as I can during my everyday life because I'm just all about keeping my skin healthy and hydrated and I love to laugh and have a great time and smile - that's when I feel the most pretty so I just want to make sure that I stay happy.

[on her eyebrows] It used to bother me - having bigger, fuller brows. I even plucked them once so I'd fit in, but I hated them and couldn't wait for them to grow back. Now I embrace them. I realized the quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful.

I've just turned 24 but I'll always be their little girl. My dad started as an actor. It's close to his heart. It excites him to see me taking on roles about growing up but, yeah, kissing scenes aren't easy for him. And in Stuck in Love (2012), I take my top off, so that was awkward.

I just did a film actually in Dublin where I played British, so it was lovely to be back in my natural accent, cause I haven't had one since I was five. My natural accent when I was little was British and then, when I moved to the States, everyone made fun of me and I just adapted to an American one and now this is what comes out of my mouth. Now it's just a bit of a hot mess.
