There's a whole canon of Ninjago history that I didn't even know about until the process of making the movie had started.

As a model, I am at the mercy of everybody else.
It's much more of a situation where I go to work, put the clothes on, get in front of the camera, and then go home. But in that process, I never really have control over any of it.

I accept it. It is what it is. I think about how I feel. So to me, yoga and running and doing work that is meaningful to me is the best way to look and feel good.

There's like one or two deleted scenes but they're not important or meaningful scenes.
In the United States and some of the other countries involved it's sort of a "five eyes" global spying alliance. That's the US, UK, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia.

Of course, there [in China] has to be chaos.
It has to be crazy, and I don't think there's anything wrong about it except this government, which is really incapable of doing anything meaningful.
