On the media and how she separates herself from it: "I completely agree that all of this media stuff, if you're involved in it, can't really touch you physically, and it shouldn't affect you and all that. Yet it does technically affect your life. Obviously in the best ways imaginable. In dreamlike ways it affects your life. But from anyone's perspective it is nuts and it should totally be acknowledged."
On creating her own media persona: "I never really thought of anything in terms of designing a career. I never tried to shape people's perspectives of me, which is something that a lot of people do. There are certain actors and artists who want to be a certain kind of actor or certain kind of artist, and I'm really not like that . . . Therefore true regret can never eat at me."
On vicious rumors: "I don't want to add to this already pre-existing, enormous mound of salacious bullsh*t that isn't real. That's not me defending anything. That's true. Just being in the middle of it it's weird to comment on it. But I feel oddly capable of stepping outside and going, 'Isn't it obvious to everyone?'"
On having her life in the spotlight: "It's like soap opera. I try not to let it mess with me, because my true personal life, as much as people think they know about it, they don't know d*ck sh*t. Who could?"
