On maintaining a long-distance relationship: “When weâ€™re busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesnâ€™t text back or call. Lifeâ€™s super-busy. Obviously you know what theyâ€™re doing, and you trust them. Weâ€™re so young that it would almost be like if we lived in the same city, what would happen? Weâ€™d be living together. At least this way heâ€™s in the same boat as I am: We can go out and have our own lives and know that we have each other.”
On a conspiracy theory saying the Academy Awards slip-ups were planned: “Iâ€™m trying to do the right thing, waving to fans, trying to be nice, and thereâ€™s a traffic cone. The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, â€˜Youâ€™re f-cked. Theyâ€™re totally going to think this is an actâ€¦â€™But trust me if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland â€“ Iâ€™m craftier than that!”
On fame: “Iâ€™m a lot more closed off and frankly probably rude. I mean, Iâ€™m from Kentucky. I used to be very personable and make eye contact and smile at people, and now all I do is look down. When Iâ€™m at dinner and one person after another keeps interrupting to take pictures, itâ€™s like, â€˜I canâ€™t live like this.â€™”
On rumors sheâ€™s jealous of Kristen: “There was something in a magazine, and I was like, â€˜Oh, my God, thatâ€™s hilarious,â€™ because Kristen and I are friends. I actually texted her a picture of it and was like, â€˜Just so you know, this is absolutely true.â€™”
