Check out what the 12-year-old actress revealed to the mag, including her longing to work with big sister Dakota, Brad Pitt and getting the hang of junior high:
On entering the realm of junior high school: “I just started seventh grade, so, I’m like, “Oh, my god!” I was really nervous at first about the whole thing with getting to your class on time, because now we have so many different classes-that freaked me out. But I’m doing good. I love artsy stuff [too]. We take art, and I love all that. But I also like science for some reason. I just like finding out why things happen.”
On having Brad Pitt as her movie dad, not once, but twice: “I did Babel  with him, but I never had any scenes with him in that movie because he was in Morocco filming and I was in Mexico. But there was one day when we were working on the same day, in L.A., and I got to meet him, so that was really cool. We’re like, “We’ve been in two movies together, but we’ve never met each other!” [laughs] Because we were both in [The Curious Case of] Benjamin Button, too. He was really nice, though.”
On sharing her clothes with sister Dakota: “We’re sort of the same size. I’m taller than her, though . . . She does not like that at all. [both laugh] She probably doesn’t like me wearing her clothes either, but we do still share. I sneak into her closet and grab things out and put them on. She’s a senior, so she’s going to college soon.”
On dreaming of being Marilyn Monroe: “I love her look and everything. But I’ve seen The Seven Year Itch  and I loved that. I watched that all the time when I was little. I liked the dress. I was her for Halloween when I was 7. I did the makeup and the mole and I did all the poses with blowing kisses and all that. But also, of course, I’d love to do something with my sister. I’ve never really acted with her before. I’ve played her at a younger age, but we’ve never been in the same scenes together.”
