The 21-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about living in New York City, younger sister Elle and why she isn’t on social media. Check it:
On little sister Elle following in her footsteps: “It started out very naturally. She played a younger me [in films such as I Am Sam], so it was like, ‘Oh yeah, it makes sense.’”
On choosing not to be on social media: “I feel like if I did it, I’d start to measure my experiences by how good of an Instagram it’s going to turn into,” she says. “And I don’t want to be living my life trying to see it all in a square, trying to get a photo.”
On her studies: “I’ve done a lot of independent studies in school on old Hollywood, because I think there was something really special then that can never be replicated because of the time that we live in, and technology. I kind of long for when there was more mystery to how movies were made. Now everyone’s goal is to know everything about everything.”
