On being a young female in Hollywood:

“When we first met, I was pretty intimidated by him. Like, you know, we were just making a movie together, and it’s such an exciting thing that people get to be part of that movie. It was just like, ‘Well, I’m in this movie and I’m making it’, but he had this amazing vision, and the next day we just had a really exciting meeting and we just started talking about all these weird things and you just kind of get to learn more about him as you work.”
On working in Hollywood:
