My chosen occupation isn't necessarily movie star; I see my chosen occupation as actor.
It's so often that I read for the bouncy, sunny girl men fall in love with who will solve all the romantic problems in the narrative. I don't choose to work that way.
I'm really into acquiring film paraphernalia - that's my hobby. I love old movie posters, cameras and film reels.
I have these surreal moments where I'm like, 'I'm pregnant with Jake Gyllenhaal's baby' and 'I'm telling Robert Pattinson that he smells of sex.' But you're acting, so the focus is on the work.
I think when you work with really wonderful directors who have a really strong vision, it lets you as an artist set the tone for your own career.
I wore a pink Betsey Johnson dress to my prom, and I pretty much looked like a pink cupcake. I loved that dress!
It's tempting to think, 'This is silly. I'm an artist. I care about my work, my work is first. I don't care about what kind of dress I wear... That's so secondary to me.' But if you care about your work... then you need to take this part of it just as seriously as you would going into an audition and going into work.
Since 'A Dangerous Method,' I've had meetings with everyone from J.J. Abrams to the producers of 'Drive.' And they all have the same thing in common; they say: 'Wow you worked with Cronenberg.' He gave me instant film cred.
When you fall in love with favourite movie stars, it's not because they're movie stars and unattainable, but because they show you sides of themselves that are extremely personal.
When you're in a very specific kind of wardrobe, it kind of dictates your movement; it also kind of enables you - or, I guess, disables you - from certain kinds of movement.
When you're wearing a corset for a long period of time, things that were important to you hours before are no longer important, because doing them exhausts you.
I think I'll always base myself out of Toronto. I don't have any plans to move to L.A.
I think Tilda Swinton is terribly interesting. I think she's fascinating. I love her work.
I've studied dance since I was very young, and I continue to study ballet.
If we learn to understand each other, we will have a better understanding of ourselves.
It's mostly directors whom I get starstruck around.
You can have a bunch of great actors in a film, but if you don't have anyone telling a great story, it's a moot point.
I do build my own backstory as an actor. It's important to know where your characters have come from in order to know where they're going - in order to exist in that state of being.
I'm a part-time student, and I plan to finish my degree. I think there are a lot of part-time students with jobs on the side or stressful careers. I'm certainly not the first person to be working while I'm in university.
It's particularly important for a young woman to be in control of her image - to a certain extent. I mean, there's only so much you can do, because people take photos with you and then all of a sudden they pop up all over the place, they're completely out of context and you have no control over how they're used.
