As a younger woman, that pressure of looking perfect got me down, but I’ve made my peace with it. With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can project an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy. I’m excited about the aging process. I’m more interested in women who aren’t perfect. They’re more compelling.

“I was 10 or 11 when the first movie came out - I was trying to figure out what my own identity was, but I didn’t really have one yet. And I watch interviews that I did when the first movie came out and I was so lost! I would think, “What do young girls talk about? What do they say?” “I like going shopping and I have a crush on Brad Pitt.” And I had no idea who Brad Pitt really was! I hadn’t seen a single movie that Brad Pitt had been in, but this just seemed like the right thing to say. It makes me sad because I see this girl trying so much to fit in. The truth was I loved school.“
