The 22-year-old actress covers the February cover and reveals to the mag about working with Bruce Willis, the secrets of Robert Pattinson and her deferring Columbia University. Here’s what she had to say:
On her work in 10,000 B.C.: “The work was frustrating. I felt like a puppet at times. I just had to realize, “OK, I’m not going to be challenged as an actress.’ You have to approach it in that sense: ‘This isn’t an acting piece, it’s a business choice.’
On working with Bruce Willis in her next flick, Three Stories About Joan: “I was actually really surprised. He’s very passionate about the actors. He just wants to spend all the time with us, and we just talked and talked, all about developing relationships and developing the backstory.”
On her friendship with RPattz: “My friend Rob [Pattinson], for that whole Twilight nonsense, the studio was having them take all these classes. It was the most frustrating thing in the world because they want you to speak like someone else, not yourself. It’s so silly. And I would be frustrated, too. I couldn’t answer questions any other way than how I would answer them.”
On her Columbia acceptance: “I made the decision to focus on work, and take advantage of this time. But school is there, and I think the most important thing is to continue learning.”
