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