Anna Kendrick. Marie Claire. September 2016.

"I once texted my brother saying, 'I miss being a scrappy little nobody; I was more capable.' He said, 'you're still scrappy, you just get more emails. I think when you get a level of success, or just settle into adult life, you wonder, 'Am I the same person I was? Have I become complacent or less thoughtful?"

Elizabeth Debicki. Marie Claire. January 2017.

"I can't walk around and say, 'I would rather be directed by a woman,' because that's not the case. For me, it's about the person - and their sensitivity and intelligence - it's not about gender. But, the amount of women who are directing TV and film is disproportionate, and it has to change."

Amanda Seyfried. Marie Claire. August 2015. 

"I want a child, badly; I want to be a mother, badly. That's what I feel. I've been feeling it for like, two years. I'm not ready but nobody's ready. It changes everything… so how you can ever be ready for that?"

Kate Winslet. Marie Claire. November 2014.

We’ve heard a lot from actresses recently about how difficult it is. But we should never be saying that it’s difficult because we are so bloody lucky. It’s just not an OK thing to share. It’s always a juggle, but isn’t it for every working mother?

Benjamin Millepied. Matches Fashion. SS16. 

I don’t think we’re in a golden age of ballet, right now. It’s like, ‘are you just going to do another Sleeping Beauty and names that people know instead of trying to discuss subjects that are relevant to people today?’ Even musicals are more daring than new ballets.

Jessica Alba. Marie Claire. September 2014.

I was pretty pissed off. I don’t know why it was so hard, it just was. I was pregnant first of all, and I really wanted to party like a rock star. I didn’t even know I cared about my twenties until I turned 30.

Elizabeth Olsen. Marie Claire. June 2014.

Because my sisters were so grounded, it helped me be grounded. They never got caught up in things. I did live a charmed life. We got to go on vacations and lived in nice homes and I got to play club volleyball and ballet, which you don’t realise as a kid are expensive. My mom would say things like, “Lizzie, we are not the Rockefellers!” That put things into perspective.

Pixie Lott. Marie Claire. February 2015.

I love small weddings in a different country, but I love massive ones in England, so maybe I’ll have two. Hopefully two weddings, not two different marriages!
