Personal Quote:

[on playing the sexually-charged "Natalie" in Our Idiot Brother (2011)] I like characters who are complex, so I follow those roles. I love independent cinema. I feel very close to that world because it's about art. And I say no to a lot of work because it looks boring. I'd rather work really hard on a great movie that few people see than a crap movie everyone sees. See more »
