On keeping fame at a distance: “I’ve never dated anyone famous. I had time before this happened to really watch the industry… I want to be able to have my family and have this normalcy and go see a play and not have the audience watching me watch the play.”

On her childhood dream coming true: “I never dreamed what my wedding dress would look like… but I always dreamed about my Oscars dress.”

On gender equality in Hollywood: “When you have both genders represented, then you have a healthier point of view… you don’t feel a hierarchy; you don’t have anyone feeling like they are being left out or bullied or humiliated. Sometimes, being the only girl on a set, you can feel like a sexual object.”
