I'm always the one on the carpet that will be wearing something that nobody else will pick from the collection. I feel like I have some style soul sisters out there, like Diane Kruger and Zoe Saldana, they feel very much kindred spirits when it comes to style.
I think the most important manner is just general kindness.
When you go to big cities, sometimes people forget to just say, "Good morning," or "How are you?"
I'm not a big heel person anyways, I'll wear them on the red carpet, but I've always been the one who loves loafers and brogues.
It was difficult for me to understand that, when you're kind to someone in a big city, a lot of the time, they think that you want something. I didn't understand that, all of a sudden, niceness meant that you were trying to get something out of somebody.

I broke my finger when I fell down the stairs prior to going on set.

We got to jump on, like, trampolines, learn flips, learn karate, kung fu, Hong Kong street fighting.
I really try and work very closely with the designers to be as consistent as possible to their vision and for their look because I know how intricate and how much time it takes for them to make it.

When I started acting, I had a really strong discipline of knowing that you had to be on time, knowing that you had to work 12 to 16 hours a day, knowing you had to be prepared, knowing you had to be ready, and it's very interesting because if you're an artist and you're creating, you can work very, very long hours but as you're putting out that love of creation, it's almost like you're charged by it, you're charged by the process of it.

It's really the artist in me that loves the idea of an image and an image that provokes an emotion.
