The 26-year-old actress talked about her new film Avengers: Age of Ultron, avoiding being jaded, and more. Here’s what she shared:
On not being jaded: “I’ve always been aware of what the word ‘jaded’ meant. Ever since I was a little girl, I remember thinking ‘I never want to be that.’ I want to live my life with curiosity, always recognizing my luck and good fortune. Because to get to make a living out of your passion is amazing. And I’m aware that there are things I might not be able to do in 10 or 15 years, whether it’s going to a fashion show or getting free clothes or doing a shoot for a brand.”
On filming the Avengers: “You don’t say no to the Avengers. I’ve never experienced anything like it in terms of scale. We took over several towns in Italy and made them look like they were in the middle of a war. Then we moved the whole set to north London where we took over an old police academy. It was just insane: there were real explosions and you could feel the heat of them. And in amidst of it all, a guy in a onesie shooting things. I couldn’t even make eye contact with that. It was just too weird.”
On rumors that she wants to do plays in London: “When I was doing Romeo & Juliet off-Broadway [in 2013], what I loved most was that while you’re up there for those two hours, everything else that happened that day is forgotten about. You’re just in the zone.”
