I would have loved to do ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ Being a ‘Bond’ girl would always be fun. We had a lot of action in ‘Eclipse’ and I’d definitely like to continue down the action road. I want to do a romantic period piece but those are really hard to get made because they’re very expensive and there’s not a huge demographic.
Don’t throw petals on the floor if they have no meaning. I would rather have a fun casual relationship than have someone pretending they’re completely in love with me.
I can still love an ex as a person regardless if the breakup was bad. I would never wish anything negative on them. It takes more energy to hate them than to wish them well.
When I was 15 I worked at a dry cleaner because I wanted Abercrombie & Fitch jeans. My mom told me I could have $20 jeans not $70 jeans unless I was willing to work for them. So I did!
Growing up my whole life my mom was telling me how incredible and special I was and that I was going to change the world. I think it’s important for girls to know that they can change the world that they do have an impact.
I remember getting this scrapbook that this girl made that I actually gave to my mom to hold onto because she has a ‘Twilight’ shrine in their house in Florida. It was just this scrapbook of me starting with ‘Twilight’ and the whole progression of me and my career throughout that and other stuff that I had done in between.
I live a dual life. On the red carpet it’s complete glam. But at home I’m a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl. Simple can be beautiful.
You can’t control the paparazzi. But if you go to Coachella you’re going to get photographed. Whereas if you’re at home walking down the street you probably won’t. It’s something I’ve learnt to navigate my way around but I try to keep my private life private.
But I don’t do the diet thing anymore. I’m a big believer in feeding your body what it needs. Deny yourself something and you’re going to end up shoving your face full of it.
Yeah I get to fight in ‘Eclipse.’ My trainer is teaching me MMA right now. So. Cool.
I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save. And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.
I really would love to do a piece like Julia Roberts or Charlize Theron in ‘Erin Brockovich’ or ‘North Country.’ They were both so amazing and so inspiring. I would love to touch someone in the way their performances touched me.
I’m an actor so sometimes there are moments where I think about everything that’s happening and I want to cry. I’m doing what I love and I will be doing it for a very very long time – and it’s amazing. A lot of people don’t get to do that.
