The 24-year-old actress opened up to the mag about happiness, her career, and her hopes for the future. Check it:
On her struggles becoming an actor: “Money was a big thing. My parents drove me up to L.A., which cost a lot because of gas, and took out loans so that we could move from location to location to be close to L.A. The family definitely struggled. They were very supportive of me. They gave up a lot so that I could get to where I am.”
On loving herself: “I am so comfortable with myself – honing in on what I love and what makes me powerful. Things I’ve been doing lately, I’m super-proud of. So I don’t really care if someone doesn’t like it, because I love it.”
On happiness: “You have a choice whether you want to be happy or not. I choose to be happy. And it’s been working out pretty well.”
On what she wants in the future: “A vintage mustang, kids, and an Oscar.”
