I can understand in some sense, having played the character, how unimaginably frustrating it is for people to tell you that you can't love who you love, because you ain't going to change it, and so they have to get out of your way.
I think that you love who you love, and there are people who you love that people aren't going to understand why, and that sort of doesn't really matter.
I was never the girl who walked down the centre of the hallway snapping people out of her way.
There are a lot of people who wait tables. And especially because you can do it at night and you can do your work in the day, she and I had a very similar experience.

Well, love is confusing at all ages, but especially when you're 17.
Well, usually when I finish one character, I'm looking for a role that's really different.
It was so much fun to play, that I've now had a taste for it and want to play more villains now.
But Paulie gives all of herself away, and so to create a love like that and a person who would give themselves away was what I thought was going to be difficult. I was little scared of such a challenge.
That's what I think we're all looking for - an honest love wherever you can find it.
There's no changing your mind about whom you love. That's part of the tough thing about being in love - it's sort of undeniable.
You can only really open yourself up so far to someone that you don't truly love - you keep something back when you know somewhere in your gut that this relationship is going to be forever.
I was bookish and dorky in high school, so the best part of this movie was getting to be on the other side.
What I'd really like to do is do a film or two a year and then do theater in New York the rest of the year.
