Here’s what the 29-year-old Aussie actress told JJ exclusively for the mag:
On acting in more uncomfortable scenes: “Sometimes you just have to jump straight into it. The more that I can shed my own personal thoughts, fears, ego, so forth, the better. When you’re heading into uncomfortable territory, too much overthinking can just make it worse. I had a few scenes like that in Careful What You Wish For.”
On working with Nick Jonas in Careful What You Wish For: “I have a lot of respect for Nick. I really felt like he blossomed and grew as an artist — because he is younger, and being in this movie was sort of bigger shoes for him to fill in some ways. It was really incredible what he brought to this role. He was able to be spontaneous and take so any risks.”
On analyzing text from the script: “I mean, as long as you feel guided. I felt guided and safe with [Knight of Cups writer Terrence Malick], so I didn’t have this urge for control. You realize that you don’t analytically need to understand everything. You can sort of trust in the unfolding — the ever unfolding — because it’s the same as in life. You never really know.”
