On Growing Up:  “Done with the twenties. I’m confident — confident in my skin, and I’m cool with my flaws and all that stuff. It just feels nice to be at peace with yourself. I think my thirtieth birthday gave me permission to have all that. The twenties were a pain in the ass — figuring it all out. What am I doing? Where do I go?”

On Her Mother:  “She — for most of my life, she was a dancer. An exotic dancer. She was a stripper. Um, so she would come home at like three, four o’clock in the morning, and sometimes she would have a really great night, and so she would wake me up in the middle of the night and we’d go to Ralphs and go grocery shopping. And that was so much fun. We’d have the whole grocery store to ourselves, and we would have a blast and buy a hundred dollars in groceries. And it was just the best day ever. The best day.”

On Experience:  “No matter what you’re doing, live it. Make an experience. Have fun. Relate to someone. Take them in. Learn. Right? Or else you’re wasting your time. And time is precious. I didn’t go to theater school. I didn’t go to Julliard. But I’ve lived a lot. I’ve seen a lot. I feel like that makes up for a little bit. I’ve lived a lot at my young age.”

On the Particulars of Being the Sexiest Woman Alive:  “I’ve never done a sexy photo shoot before. I’ve never really honestly tapped into that side. It was really liberating. It was exciting. I would look at the pictures, like, that’s me?”
