Here’s some excerpts from her interview:
On balancing her classes at USC & filming The Blind Side:
“I did my first semester during the second half of the school year, and then Blind Side happened. I didn’t want to leave and not have that time count, so I had to write 10 extra papers and Skype with teachers, all while I was on set. And I had to fly back for finals. It was kind of really difficult.”
On being persistent & proving herself in the business:
“I have a mentality of taking a situation and making it the best it can be. From being 16 and going into boardrooms and having to prove myself, I understand the process of shocking people. They see one thing when you walk in, and hopefully they see something else when you leave.”
Her new film Mirror Mirror releases March 30.
