Here is what the ladies, who worked together in The Spectacular Now, had to share with the mag:
Shailene on the Jennifer Lawrence comparisons: “As women, we are constantly told that we need to compare ourselves to a girl in school, to our co-workers, to the images in a magazine. How is the world going to advance if we’re always comparing ourselves to others? I admire Jennifer Lawrence, but she’s everyone’s favorite person to compare me to. Is it because we both have short hair and a vagina? I see us as separate individuals. And that’s important. As women, our insecurities are based on all these comparisons. And that creates distress.”
Brie on being friends with Shailene: “When Shai and I met each other, it was boom! We understood each other instantly. We’re the lighthouse for each other: the beam that stays focused and guides you home.”
Shailene on being friends with Brie: “Together, we are able to refine our ideas. In the past, we would talk about how people told us that if we wanted ‘success,’ we’d have to dress a certain way, act a certain way. Brie and I always felt different, and, suddenly, when we met, that was okay. In fact, it was great.”
