“I’ve had dark times – this voice in my head that makes me pretty hard on myself. I really don’t let anything go. I’ve been learning that I have to try and be a bit kinder and take care of myself a bit better.”
“I feel like young girls are told, I don’t know, that they have to be this kind of princess and fragile. It’s bullshit. I identify much more with being a warrior, a fighter. If I was going to be a princess I’d be a warrior princess definitely.”
I’ve had my breath taken away when a fan told me since watching my speech she has stopped herself being beaten up by her father. I’ve been stunned by the amount of men in my life that have contacted me since my speech to tell me to keep going, and that they want to make sure that their daughters will still be alive to see a world where women have power and equality, economically and politically.
I mean, I have done scenes with animals, with owls, with bats, with cats, with special effects, with thespians, in the freezing cold, in the pouring rain, boiling hot; I’ve done press with every syndication, every country; I’ve done interviews with people dressed up as cows - there’s honestly nothing that’s gonna intimidate me!
