Personal Quotes (9)

I'm the girl who will show up in jeans no matter what - but the jeans can get fancier and fancier.
I like to do yoga, Pilates, dance, and things like that.
I don't do detoxes or cleanses; they don't really work for me.
Honestly, all the sweets and bad stuff on set don't really call to me because I'm working so much. I've trained myself to stay away from sugar.
As an actor, what I'm finding is that I really like the extremes. I think that's really fun to play with.
I started doing yoga in college, so that has just become a staple of a self-care routine for my mind and my body. My body craves it at this point, so I do it two to three times a week, sometimes more. I practice Vinyasa style yoga and sometimes mix it up.
I didn't spend a lot of time with prison guards, but my father was an assistant district attorney for a long time so I was always hearing stories about prisoners and prison guards.
The entertainment industry does well on a tried and true model, and so me need tried and true models. Maybe 'Orange' is the model that people will be interested in copying.
[on Orange Is the New Black (2013)] There's this pervasive myth that in order for a piece of entertainment to have a crossover audience of men and women, it has to be a predominantly male film. I think this is showing people that women driving their own narrative, in a way that is complicated and dynamic and raw and vulnerable and real, is a hot commodity. People are really interested in that, interested in story and hungry for an authentic voice.
