On Life Goals
”I need more sex, OK? Before I die I wanna taste everyone in the world.”

On Choosing Roles
”I always play women I would date.”

On Happiness
”I’ve been gaining weight to play Lara [Croft, the heroine of Tomb Raider]… I finally got my ass back, ’cause I had lost weight. So I’m happy that I have my old ass back.”

On Fate
”You’re young, you’re crazy, you’re in bed and you’ve got knives. So s— happens.”

On Social Position
