I'm a big fan of Lauren Bacall. Maybe because everyone was smoking more heavily then, but that raspy, throaty quality seems to be much more prevalent in those '40s movies. Mine was from colic when I was a baby.
The first time I was nominated, I didn't know anything about the Oscars... I just did Oscar week and enjoyed it very much because I was with my mum. ...It has nothing to do really at all with your performance. It comes down to if you get an Oscar for your film, then the revenue for your film goes up. They mean a great deal. I can't deny it.
My hair is naturally blonde, so it's kind of nice. I look in the mirror and say, 'Oh my God, it's me again, it's been so long!'
Haven't had to fight off any Seth characters. And I'm not fighting him off. It's a situation where I really do like him. I just don't want our first kiss to happen in that situation. But, no, I've never really had that experience. Of someone coming on to me being out of their mind drunk. I'm the lucky one, maybe.
How unusual is it that you see a story in which a woman cheats on her husband but you also root for them to get back together?
I learned to play the bass for 'The Rocker.' So I can play all the songs in the movie, but that's pretty much where the line ends. I bought a Fender Mustang bass, a really nice off-white, ivory bass, when I got home. I have not touched it since.
I'm very crafty! One time I made a television set out of a cardboard box - Everybody thought it was a lark! This was the beginning of a love affair with the arts. I'm now studying art in Brown, a fancy American school.
It was unbelievable seeing me as an action figure! In a few months, toddlers all around the country will be biting my head off!
I like being around mixed company. Dan and Rupert definitely make their fair share of cheeky comments about me being girlie, but it's all in good fun.
I never wear pigtails, I wear plaits.
Free handbags are lovely, but that's not what I see as the benefits of being famous. It means I can do things I really care about, like 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower,' which might not have been made otherwise.
Now that I've played the snotty, bossy, posh Hermione Granger, I'd like to play some American high school girl. ...but I'm probably going to be playing Hermione for a while.
I can't stand this new culture of the instant disposable celebrity. It's all so vulgar.
I've realized that in all the great stories, even if there's a happily-ever-after ending, there's something sad
If you've got to my age, you've probably had your heart broken many times. So it's not that difficult to unpack a bit of grief from some little corner of your heart and cry over it
Children are the most wonderful audiences. What's struck me most is that that they watch it so silently, until the end when they shriek and shout and clap.
I always wanted to be an actress. My first audition, while I was 9, was playing Johnny Depp's daughter. I think everyone in my family was shocked because they sent me on the audition to kind of shut me up about the acting thing.
It's a honor to play Nancy Drew! No matter what generation it is, she kind of just fits right in, and she's cool.
Right now, I would really like to play a mean girl in a movie, because so far, I have played a really nice girl or the dork.
I think Julia and I have the same smile, but I don't think I look like her at all.
I think there are a lot of people out there who say the really low blow of 'She's just in the business because of her family'. I do it because I love to do it. There have been a lot of parts I've been up for that I haven't gotten. I don't get everything handed to me like some people think.
My most prized possession, though, is an autographed picture of Rupert Grint, who plays 'Ron Weasley' in the 'Harry Potter' films.
