At a party recently I was introduced to Meryl Streep, and it took me a second to get my head around it. You know, that I’m meeting these people now. I’m doing it.
Everything happens for a reason and, of course at times it’s very discouraging, but at the end of the day you can’t take it personally and move onward because if you let it sit with you, then it starts to eat away at you and you’re allowing someone else to steal your excitement. No one wants that.
Everything was just so spot on and character-building for me in terms of creating Celia [Bryant]. The ability to get to wear all these vintage pieces and immerse yourself in that world and get to wear all these amazing hats. And the shoes!
I love to test boundaries.
I don’t know if this is too weird to say, but this is completely surreal for me. Bizarre. The cover of ‘Teen Vogue’ has been on my bucket list forever.
My mom brought me up on old Hollywood. I had been living in Los Angeles. Respecting old movies and growing up with people that were icons that I got to speak to.
I still think there is a huge emphasis on how women look, whether it’s fitting a certain mold to play a certain type of character, or the idea that we might have insecurities based on the standards we see in the media.
But the thing is, I was never looking at a strategic way of gaining fame. That’s not why I’m doing this.
In the ’30s, every day was an event. And, as much as I love that idea, I think nowadays it’s nice to have the differentiation of when you dress up and when you don’t.
Could I see him acting as Warren Beatty directed, and what would that be like? When you see him as those characters, once you get to know him, there is so much of him in them. In fact, I saw so much of him in them that it made me laugh.
To look into that persons eyes and find yourself so completely lost in another world, a world full of absolute comfort and happiness.
My advice for girls who are waiting for their Prince Charming is to be open for anything. Be open to new experiences, be open to the idea that it may take longer than you want, but if you’re open to meeting new people and new adventures, then love will come along.
