On starting a new venture this past year: “I have done a lot of work for myself this year. I started therapy this year, which is something I have never done before. I started it to be the best version of myself that I am trying to be.”

On adding on- and off-camera work to her resume: “I feel so frickin’ grateful to have reached such a certain amount of success where I am now able to decide what I want to produce, and create opportunities for myself that maybe otherwise wouldn’t have presented themselves to me.”

On taking on diverse roles from The Kissing Booth to The Act: “I think that being able to be an everyday person who is able to transform into someone like Elle Evans, to just be like every girl and able to be a lead of a movie, is meaningful. And also to become someone like Gypsy [Rose Blanchard] and completely strip away my vanity. I think people resonate with that, that vanity is not my top focus.”

On restraining herself from sharing so much of herself with the world: “Being an actor is so tough, because you have this image of who you are and what kind of image you want to present to other people, when in reality you have no control of what people think of you… I started to see the downside of people having so much information about you or to your personality or personal information.”

On working on herself from within: “I try not put too much pressure on myself because I always feel like I have, so being able to be like, ‘Hey, it’s okay that you’re anxious’, or ‘It’s okay you’re overwhelmed and only answer one email.’ Just being able to say that, I feel better… I don’t think I am the most patient person. I think that is something I have to work on.”
