“I think I’m surprisingly different in real life than what people expect or what people project on to me. I’m not actually that awkward, I don’t think. I think people see me as this sarcastic person that doesn’t care about anything. But, on the contrary, I’m pretty emotional and sensitive and I care a lot about things and people. I think in moments where the spotlight is on me — like if I’m doing a talk show — my defenses come into play and maybe that’s why people see me that way. But, I think my sarcasm is often a way for me to get through those moments. I mean, if you came over to my house, I’d make you a cup of tea and be probably really interested in you.”

“We have a very deep connection, and it’s hard to have friendships in this town. We have a mutual respect for each other, professionally and personally. And we’re also sexually attracted to each other. That’s another kind of layer of our relationship.”

– Aubrey Plaza, talking about her “BFF” Anna Kendrick in the NY Times.

“There have been things that have ended that have torn through me like a death. If it’s something I have grown so close to, when it’s over it hurts, you know. I did a play once and I couldn’t talk about it for about three years without crying because it was like a death to me when it ended. That’s kind of what it’s like with these characters. It’s almost like getting a best friend and you learn everything about them and you learn how they work and you live with them and then this part of you dies and they go away.” - Dane DeHaan
