Kat Dennings Covers 'Complex' April/May 2011
Here’s what the 24-year-old Thor actress had to share:
On one thing she’d like to change about herself: “That list keeps growing. [Laughs.] That’s a process. I’m still young and I’m hoping to learn as I grow. I wish I was a less anxious driver. L.A.’s a stressful place to drive, and I tend to seize up when I drive. I get very nervous when someone goes in front of me. I’m working on that. I’m getting better at it.”
On staying grounded and true to herself: “People make the mistake of drinking the Kool-Aid, believing your own hype, letting people tell you you’re this or you’re that or you’re too this. Just listen to yourself and take the roles that challenge you and try to do a good job. If you do that, if you’re honest about things, you can’t get too far astray. If it’s about the work for you, then you’re gonna go far. If it’s about the glitz and anything else, forget it, you’re in it for the wrong reasons.”
On working with Anthony Hopkins: “We didn’t have any scenes together, so the only time I really saw him was the table read. If he says one line, the whole room is silent, just leaning in to hear every word. No pun intended, it’s like being around a god.”
