“Everyone’s like, ‘You’re back to doing indies.’ I tried to do an indie between every Twilight movie. I still do this,” she says. “Plus, Twilight initially was a funky indie teen flick. There was something about it that I thought was really special and great. I’m not trying to make people think I’m serious or anything. The roles for women in Hollywood — they’re very categorically narrow. When a good script sticks out as being unique, I jump on it.”

“What I love about this movie is that it’s about a family that sort of discovers in losing someone, you discover why this pillar exists. If she hadn’t started to step out of this light you might never really blink your eyes to focus on her. I play someone who, absolutely, as we all do, take for granted certain things that seem so apparently a natural part of life. And then as soon as those things start to descend into darkness it’s sort of…for everyone it doesn’t speak to how good a person Lydia is, or maybe some people here think Alex’s character was not as strong. To polarize and define those things so clearly, it’s prejudice. It’s personally informed and of course we’re all going to have certain opinions and feelings that are so assigned to us because of who we are. But, really, this movie just makes you go, ‘Oh my God. I should really just open my eyes clearly to things that are in front of me every single day.”


New “Clouds of Sils Maria” On-set interview (x)

“Valentine is Maria Enders’ personnal assistant. The type of girl that I have definitely seen on many sets and in many environments. Sort of… Not the average assistant, but someone who is probably going somewhere, definitely has ambition and interest.She really, really admire Maria Enders, who is Juliette’s character. She would probably not work for another actress.She could assist a producer or work behind the scenes. In Maria she found someone who’s worth sucking a bit of life out of her.And I’ve seen that kind of relationship a couple times. And here it’s so perfectly put together. They’re having dynamics that I’ve definitely seen before.” (thanks to @somelostbliss for the translation)
