• On her love for George Clooney: "He's still one of my favorite human beings. The things he talks about in the press, like going to Africa, are about 1/13 of the things he does. My mom and George are probably the only two people I've ever met who are truly genuine givers."

  • On the social media craze: "The whole social media thing is just a little too weird for me. . . . We're all such narcissists, and that's what social media caters to. Our society conditions us to be our own planets, which is great. Independent thinking is so important. But we expect everyone around us to be our moons."
  • On teen stars: "I think there's this big rise right now in giving teenagers the worth they have. For so long they were — and still are — depicted in movies and TV shows as codependent whiners or rich, beautiful, diamond-clad daughters or dumb cheerleader types. But teenagers are so smart. I was probably smarter as a 16-year-old than I am today. There is a zest for life that you have at that age that is so beautiful."
