Mia Wasikowska: Paparazzi Always Want to Test the New Young Actresses

Mia Wasikowska looks stunning on the cover of Elle Canada‘s September 2014 issue, on newsstands August 11.

Here is what the 24-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On getting followed by paparazzi: “When Alice in Wonderland first came out, they were at the airports and stuff, but I think they just figured I’m pretty boring and left me alone. [Laughs] When I promote a big enough movie, they kind of show up to see if I’m going to stumble out of the cab or flash my underpants, and then they leave again. I think they always want to test the new young actresses….”

On advice she’d give to herself at 15: “I would just tell myself to be nicer to myself. I think everybody could probably do with being nicer to their younger selves. Adolescence is a profoundly lonely time for most people.”

On where her drive to become an actress came from: “I think all actors experience a certain amount of discomfort within themselves. I’m more comfortable in myself now, but as a teenager, I felt so much more secure in somebody else’s clothes than I did in my own. I got the chance to express all these emotions that otherwise were very difficult to express, like anger and rage and sadness.”
