On her controversial 2012 film Spring Breakers:

“My family hated the movie, but I told them, ‘There are going to be films that you are not going to want to support, but you don’t have to see those films.’ I wanted that challenge.”

On playing video game warrior Lady Lisa in Pixels:

“There aren’t a lot of films right now with strong female leads. There should be more–especially after Spring Breakers happened. We are all waiting.”

On her least favourite part about the job:

“I hate the red carpet. It’s nerve-racking. People are yelling at you and pictures are being taken at all angles. It is not a comfortable thing for a human to experience!”

On dating in Hollywood:

“I don’t think I would be able to date a high-profile actor the way Angelina Jolie has. It’s too much attention when two powerful people are together.”

On her upcoming film Chronically Metropolitan:

“The director wanted to know if I’d ever been through heartbreak or lost my first love … He wanted to show two people who are in love and break up and then see each other a year after the fact. I was like, ‘All those boxes are ticked!’”
