- On working with Leonardo DiCaprio: "Well, he wasn’t my pin-up, but he was for a lot of my girlfriends. When I did the audition with Leo in New York I walked away grinning. Just the idea that if I never got any further, I had just spent an hour and a half acting with Leonardo DiCaprio."
- On listening to LMFAO "Party Rock Anthem" while filming Gatsby: "That’s what we used to dance to. It’s also the song that made me laugh hysterically and there were lots of times when I needed to go into a scene with that kind of energy."
- On wearing Prada: "I have worn a lot of Prada and always loved their clothes. I always felt very comfortable. They were the first designer house that ever lent me anything; I wore Prada to the Oscars. The people who work there are so lovely and really just non-scary fashion people."
