The 20-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about her career and society’s reliance on technology. Check it:
On technology: I’ve been toying with the notion of what the repercussions of what our technological use will be. Think about it. However many years ago, people would smoke three packs of cigarettes a day. No one would monitor that in any way. Are we going to have a timer on our phones saying that we can only be on it for two hours a day? Are we going to go to our friends and say, ‘Fuck, I fell off the wagon and was on my phone for ten hours yesterday?’ When someone is on their phone in the subway, are we gonna be like, “God, look at that person?’ I just wonder because we don’t know the long-term effects. It being near our heads while we sleep, we don’t know if it causes brain cancer. I think it’s going to be like cigarettes.
On working in all genres: I would like to be genreless. In theory, I would love to be known for comedy just as much as drama. I just want to keep working. I’m lucky to be working. I’m kind of exhausted by the constant need to brand yourself—that’s a very prevalent way of living as an actor nowadays. I don’t want to be pigeonholed, I don’t want people to look at me and see one thing. I don’t want to be a thing. I want to be a human.
