The 27-year-old actress chatted with the mag about Vanessa Hudgens getting the bad girl role in Sucker Punch, her own character, Amber, and how hard it was to get the part in Hangover II. Check it:
On going out for bad girl Blondie: “There was a screening process with the cast and directors, and then I went in to meet with Zack. Originally, the part I went out for was Vanessa Hudgensâ€™ role, [this character called] Blondie. And Vanessa got the part. I was devastated. It felt like I broke up with a boyfriend. But then, a month later, three girls dropped out because of scheduling conflicts, and lucky for me, I got the part of Amber. So I was really fortunate.”
On her own character, Amber: “Sheâ€™s the glue to the group, and even throughout all the different fantasy worlds, she still carries on this character trait of being the one thatâ€™s down to keep the girls together. Amber is basically a fiercely loyal friend to all the girls.”
On her audition for Hangover II:” I was vacationing last summer with my boyfriend in the Philippinesâ€”it took over 24 hours to travel thereâ€”and we were a day into the vacation when I got a phone call from my manager, like, â€œYou need to come back to L.A.â€ I said, â€œYouâ€™re fucking kidding me, I just got here. What the hell for?â€ Then, she said, â€œItâ€™s The Hangover Part II.â€ We spent that entire day changing our flights so we could fly out first thing in the morning.
