On being labeled an “It Girl:”

“It must come up when you Google me or something. I’d rather cut off my pinkie than Google myself. The whole ‘It Girl’ thing—I never felt that was the correct label, because I saw that as meaning ‘flash in the pan,’ or ‘socialite,’ or ‘rich girl,’ or ‘druggie girl,’ or ‘model girl,’ even though its origin is Clara Bow, who was the coolest thing ever.”

On getting the acting bug early:

“I saw Annie in kindergarten. And then I was like, ‘I want to do that.’ ”

On finding inspiration in fashion magazines:

“Marianne Faithfull and Debbie Harry—those were the first images I ever saw of women that I thought were beautiful.”

On the friends she gravitated towards in high school:

“They were the ‘cool kids,’ the ones who were also the rejects and the delinquents, and probably the children of alcoholics or divorced parents. People I fit in with.”

On being pigeonholed in Hollywood:

“I may have hurt myself as far as being pigeonholed. It’s always this ’90s indie-girl thing. I can’t crawl out of that, at least in Hollywood’s perception of me.”
