Her Big Break on Breaking Bad

“I binged the first seven episodes in one day and thought, I want to be on it, and I don’t care if anybody sees it. Trusting your instincts like that is a great lesson, because when you listen to your gut, you can’t go wrong.”What’s Next: Starring alongside Amy Adams in Tim Burton’s latest film, Big Eyes, and Recording New Music Under the Moniker Ex Vivian


On Tim Burton:

“For years, I kept bugging my manager and agent: When can I work with Tim Burton? When can I work with Tim Burton? I was a huge fan of all of his movies growing up even before I knew what acting was or that you could make a [living] as an actress.”

On Amy Adams:

“I was just in awe of her abilities; her acting is like jazz, it’s all just mesmerizing.”

On the similarities between her and her character:

“Especially at a time where women didn’t really have a voice—as perfectly depicted in the movie—I like that my character wasn’t afraid to say what she thought. It’s close to who I am and what I would do for a friend; I say what’s on my mind and call things like I see it. I would never consider myself a wallflower.”

On the music she’s currently working on:

“Cutesy and dark and girly... I’m happiest when I’m playing guitar and writing and expressing myself in that creative way—it’s a great detox from the grind of Hollywood for me.”

Her Personal Style

“You get to choose how the world sees you every day by putting on your clothes. I like to be a little rock ’n’ roll, but feminine and comfortable. I’ll wear rock ’n’ roll boots, a cute little dress, and a leather jacket if the weather requires it.”


On Her Boyfriend, Indie Rock Star, War On Drugs’ Adam Granduciel

“I’ve always dated musicians, even in high school.”“He’s my favorite artist.”“He’s incredibly supportive and encouraging. We played guitar together for a bit yesterday before he left on tour. He taught me a scale that I’m going to practice a bunch and try to blow his mind when he gets back.”
