Personal Quote:

I never get recognized. I think because, in my most successful film [The Help (2011)], I look very different. But, you know, if someone does happen to recognize me, they're usually sweet, and it's never a negative experience. My favorite thing is if I'm going out to buy something embarrassing, I always think, "Oh God, I hope no one sees me buy this!" However, for the most part, it's been fine. See more »
