The 16-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about her Maleficent co-star Angelina Jolie, her love for her craft, and more. Check it:
On Angelina: “When she walks in the room, everyone notices her presence. She’s really that powerful. I was nervous to meet her at first, but after we hugged, I was fine.”
On the stereotypes that exist in films today: “There are still a lot of movies where women are dependent on the guy. We don’t always need a love interest. We can stand on our own. There are so many movies where guys are alone, doing their own thing, so I don’t see why we can’t have that too.”
On her love of acting: “I always think of it as make-believe. That’s why I love this job, and think I’ll never get tired of it: You are creating something you haven’t felt or experienced before.”
