You just tell me what you want, and I’m gonna be that for you. Because I was home-schooled, I didn’t have a lot of friends and I did ballet, which was always just girls. I hear about actors who become the role and I think ‘I wonder what that feels like’. It just felt meant to be. I was very excited.
Then, telling Derek Cianfrance that I’d ever I could rob a bank I’d do it on my motorcycle, and he said ‘That’s weird, I just wrote a script about that’. There would be no cuts, real people in there, real tellers. Anything happens a minute either side of that, and you’re on your own. I think like a girl, I think. I went through puberty in a theme park.
If ever I try to predict, I’m sure I will be instantly humbled. I fantasized about robbing banks for a long time, ever since I was a kid. If I drive for you, you get your money.
