The 20-year-old Aussie Alice in Wonderland star, also wearing a Burberry dress, opened up to the mag about being Alice, fame and the upcoming Jane Eyre. Check it:
On taking fame as it comes: “I like my anonymityâ€”that when I meet people they don’t know me. I like getting jobs because I auditioned for them, because of my ability as opposed to my celebrity.”
On playing the title character in the biggest fantasy story: “One of the things that was scary about taking on that role is the huge fan base; everybody has their own idea of who she is. So [Tim Burton and I] discussed, very early on, just being happy with her being our Alice…making her my own. I really think it will be exciting, especially for girls my age because it explores that period of your life when you have these expectations upon you and you’re finding that, amongst that, you have to try and hold on to yourself.”
On taking on the romantic story of Jane Eyre: “I’m completely excited. As a teenager I was very anxious. I had a lot of energy and passion that I wanted to channel into creative things, and I always felt like I wasn’t achieving enough.”
