Maybe I wasn't fair. But I didn't want to get involved with all that. It was way more material. Everyone was like way overachievers into athletics and wanted to go to Ivy League schools. I didn't do any extracurricular activities in high school. I guess I skated a bit. My brother had been a skater. We had two ramps in our backyard. I'd sit by the ramps and watch his friends skate. That's when my infatuation with skaters began. I wasn't very good at ramps, so I used to skate freestyle. Hide

But I'm not ashamed to admit it: Fashion is superficial, but I love it. Hide

I think I was very bored, and I did just love taking hallucinogens. But I often feel it's because I experimented when I was younger that I have no interest as an adult. I know a lot of adults who didn't, and it's much more dangerous when you start experimenting as an adult. [on drug experimentation as a teenager] Hide

I said, I'm sorry, I can't just go into a room and, like, try to achieve that. That's not my motivation in life. Hide

It's like you always have to put on a happy face, be the phony baloney, and I'm so not that. I never was that; I'll never be that. That is part of the business that I don't like. Hide

Always had to pay my own rent. But I don't really have any concept of how money works. I don't know how much things cost. Like a BMW. Or a quart of milk. It's embarrassing. Hide

I worried that I wasn't smart enough or pretty enough or talented enough. Everywhere I went, I'd wonder, what are people thinking about me? What are they saying? I couldn't go to a Friday night movie for fear people would heckle me! But after 30, you just stop worrying so much. You start caring about things that are more important. Hide

It's a shame people write so many things when they haven't seen it. When you see the film, it makes more sense. It's an art film. It should be playing in museums. It's like an Andy Warhol movie.

The key is often to dress up inexpensive basics with accessories. Something like a beautiful designer bag or belt can make everything else look richer and more luxurious. Hide

I was actually in some commercials when I was a kid. And then my mother pulled because she thought the world was a little too twisted and she wanted me to be a kid more. And so they hired a professional actress, Mia Kirshner and then two days before shooting they fired her and hired me, so that's someone else's misfortune. Hide

You feel less pressure. Hide
