On Lowered Expectations For Child Stars: Sometimes I feel as though everyone’s waiting with baited breath for the three of us from Harry Potter to do something that will perpetuate the child-star stereotype. I don’t know if I’m the least likely person to go off the rails, but I don’t see any need to. It’s not on my agenda. There are too many other things I want to do.
On Robert Pattinson’s Fame: I can’t even imagine what that kind of fame must be like. So many people must wish they were in his position and think that he has the best life, but actually … there are prices you pay. Don’t interpret that from my perspective; it’s not so bad for me. I’m not in Rob’s position, I dont have people screaming and crying and clawing at me. I’m so grateful for that.
On Alcohol: I’m not that much of a lightweight. My dad’s great hobby is wine, so it’s always been part of our family life. For someone so little, I don’t get drunk very easily. It’s quite a good talent. I’m not challenging anyone to a competition though!
On Her Lancome Gig: I think the thing that’s really fun about make-up is how you can carry it around in a tiny bag and it can completely transform the way that you feel, and makes you feel like a different person or a different character. Anything that makes you feel beautiful or better about yourself is pretty amazing. I’m definitely really enjoying doing make-up. Those are really all of the reasons I wanted to work with Lancome is because they seemed really collaborative and I can get really, really involved. I would hate to have to promote something or have to talk about something if it wasn’t something that I genuinely thought was great. So the perfume was my choice. I absolutely love it.
On Her Style: When I’m away from photo shoots, I tend to be very low key. I tend to wear either navy blue or gray or white. So wearing all this bright pink and fluorescent colors is fun. It’s like dress up. I love the ’50s. I love Marilyn Monroe with her big red lips and that incredible cat eye, it’s amazing. The ’60s … Edie Sedgwick, I love.
