Always the aim for me is making people feel like they are not alone. That’s just the greatest feeling.
Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep -feel it all. Look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.
Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart.
A lot of people work out to be skinny. That’s so boring, and it seems like a depressing goal for a modern woman.
I remember having this friend in school who said she didn’t like the Beach Boys. And in that moment I knew we couldn’t be friends anymore.
It’s never too late for a coffee. After all it’s morning somewhere in the world.
Everyone has the heartbreak that shapes them in a way that they could never go back to the innocence that they had before.
That is so personal, and it’s my pet peeve when people press you on it. And it’s always women who get asked! Is anybody saying that to George Clooney?
Oh, me? I’m not 80% water. I’m 80% coffee, and a little bit of sass.
What led me to be an actor is that I have a strange something in me that can drastically change the way I appear to the world. Growing up, I couldn’t understand why people would always have different ideas of me – but because of that I became aware of how you can manipulate your own ability to change. And then I learned to make a career of it.
I think every year I become happier because I become more comfident and more comfortable in my own skin.
You don’t have to wear expensive clothes to look good.
I’m just being myself. There is not an ounce of me that believes any of that crap that they say. We can’t be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a f-king feminist and wear a f-king Peter Pan collar. So f-king what?
I just like music that sounds like music. Not like machines and computers and things that you design to make things sound slick and perfect.
When I was 13, I wasn’t the coolest kid in my class, and that inner dork is a wonderful thing to have.
Girls get competitive, as though there’s only one spot in the world for everything _ but that’s not true. We need to stick together and see there’s more to life than pleasing men. It’s important not to cut yourself off from female friendships. I think sometimes girls get scared of other girls, but you need each other.
The internet’s like one big bathroom wall with a lot of people who anonymously can say really mean things. It’s fine, I believe in freedom of speech and I think people should think what they want, but I don’t care to hear it.
I’m not doing it to pander to people. I just always knew what I liked versus what I don’t like. I never liked things with too many zippers or spikes and stuff. That weirds me out. I like things that are pretty. And I think it’s great to be pretty. I like being feminine. I think it’s good to be feminine. We don’t need to look like men or dress like men or talk like men to be powerful. We can be powerful in our own way, our own feminine way.
My sister and I do to what we love to do and do what we want to do, so that sort of started us off having a sense of ‘Do this because you love it’ not ‘Do this because you want to be famous.’
I like a lot of old films, I like a lot old music, and a lot of it has to do with the fact that I like the idea of knowing what happens before, so that I can understand it.
I think it’s better to have your personal life and your work life separate. That way they don’t corrupt each other, so to speak.
I love singing Christmas carols. I know every harmony to every music-hall Christmas song.
I grew up believing my sister was from the planet Neptune and had been sent down to Earth to kill me.
Blossoming and unfolding are basically the same thing, but blossoming is more romantic.
Writing music is really personal, and it’s a really exciting thing to participate in because represents the full creative process: It feels like something is coming from nothing.
