#Quote
1 [on Orange Is the New Black (2013)] There's this pervasive myth that in order for a piece of entertainment to have a crossover audience of men and women, it has to be a predominantly male film. I think this is showing people that women driving their own narrative, in a way that is complicated and dynamic and raw and vulnerable and real, is a hot commodity. People are really interested in that, interested in story and hungry for an authentic voice.
2 The entertainment industry does well on a tried and true model, and so we need tried and true models. Maybe Orange Is the New Black (2013)] is the model that people will be interested in copying.
3 I didn't spend a lot of time with prison guards, but my father was an assistant district attorney for a long time so I was always hearing stories about prisoners and prison guards.
4 I started doing yoga in college, so that has just become a staple of a self-care routine for my mind and my body. My body craves it at this point, so I do it two to three times a week, sometimes more. I practice Vinyasa-style yoga and sometimes mix it up.
5 As an actor, what I'm finding is that I really like the extremes. I think that's really fun to play with.
6 Honestly, all the sweets and bad stuff on set don't really call to me because I'm working so much. I've trained myself to stay away from sugar.
7 I don't do detoxes or cleanses; they don't really work for me.
8 I like to do yoga, Pilates, dance, and things like that.
9 I'm the girl who will show up in jeans no matter what--but the jeans can get fancier and fancier.
