The 15-year-old actress dished in the December 2009 issue about growing up through her movie roles, why she chose to go to private school and her budding friendship with Kristen Stewart. Check it:
On her relationship with Kristen: “We became really close, like we’d known each other for our whole lives. We talk all the time. I’ve never been such an evil character [in New Moon], and because I do know Kristen so well, being mean to her was really weird. It’s like, ‘Sorry, dude!’ [Our] relationship that Joan and Cherie have in the script [for The Runaways] is kind of the one that Kristen and I have in real life, minus the destructive part.”
On transitioning from child-star to teen-star: “I’m going to get older and I want to act for the rest of my lifeâ€”it’s what I loveâ€”so I have to move forward with my career. The choices that I make might not always please everyone, but I have to do what I feel is appropriate and right for the time.”
On going to a private school: “I get my rebellion out through my movies. I’m boring in that way. I enjoy having a normal life. I started there [at my school] in the ninth grade, and they were pretty receptive to me right away. I really wanted a home base, because I feel like no matter how old people are, they remember homecoming. They remember their senior prom. And I really wanted that.”
