On being caught cheating with Rupert Sanders: “It’s not a terrible thing if you’re either loved or hated. But honestly,I don’t care ’cause it doesn’t keep me from doing my shit. And I apologize to everyone for making them so angry. It was not my intention.”
On the media’s intense scrutiny: “It’s a little annoying having to be so compartmentalized. I go from box to box to box. Like right now, this is so crazy ’cause we’re out at a restaurant. But I’m going out a lot more now. I was starting to get closed off and self-conscious, and I’m trudging forth into the world more often.”
On starting her acting career as a child: “I decided a year after not getting any commercials, ‘F–k it. I won’t make my mom drive around Los Angeles anymore. I also got so nervous for every single audition. I was just dying. I had one appointment left and my mom said, ‘Have a little integrity and go to your last one.’ And it was The Safety of Objects. If I hadn’t gotten that, I would have been done.”
On if she feels pigeonholed as an actress by the role of Bella: “The only relief when it comes to Twilight is that the story is done. I start every project to finish the motherf–ker, and to extend that [mentality] over a five-year period adapting all of these treasured moments over four books, it was constantly worrying. But as long as people’s perspective of me doesn’t keep me from doing what I want to do, it doesn’t matter.”
