I dance around my living room to cheesy '80s aerobics music until I'm sweating really hard!
I'm allergic to Hawaii. Everything there makes me react in some way.
Acting is something I appreciate, and I think it's been an amazing experience. But I'm not passionate about acting the way you probably should be to call yourself an actor.
I do feel like I'm at ease in my own skin when I find an androgynous balance.
I'm the kind of person who, if I were living in another time, if I had to pick any time, I would probably be a pioneer. I just love the simplicity of what it means to work hard with your hands - to eat and survive.
I've been astounded to discover how good to their teams and crew that Marvel are. They're so collaborative, so smart with their stories. They have rich, dynamic characters which are so much fun to play.
I hated being a flight attendant. I did it for a month and then quit.
When I hear the words 'Women should be barefoot and pregnant and in the kitchen,' I think, 'What. A. Dream.' There are no negative connotations to it.
'Why are we here?' 'What is our purpose? 'Is there an afterlife?' 'Is there a God?' 'Is it all about science?' Those are big questions, and usually, TV is a little scared to go there.
I have battled clinical depression and have come out of the other side. I've been free of it for many years now. Finding the place in my own mind and heart to win that battle without using medication, finding the place within myself where I could be alive again, that was one of the biggest challenges I've faced.
I'm from Canada, and New Zealand feels like you took all the best bits of Canada and squished them onto a tiny island like Hawaii. I was absolutely blown away by the beauty of the South Island.
Every other 16-year-old girl wanted to look at bridal magazines; I could not have been more bored with the notion.
If you can't sit in a cafe quietly and be ignored, how can you observe human nature and write a story?
Believe me, there is nothing more rewarding than making Peter Jackson chuckle.
'The Squickerwonkers' was the story I wrote when I was on 'The Hobbit.' And I brought it to Comic-Con and sold out a thousand copies I had printed.
There are so many roles on TV that I don't covet. I see them, and I'm glad I don't have to play them.
It is a very frustrating thing to be the face of a creative project and yet essentially have zero creative control over that project. Essentially, you're a pawn in the system.
I consider acting a day job - it's not my dream; it's not my be-all, end-all.
I'm a bit delusional, but every time I do a job, I think I'm retired.
I used to cry myself to sleep wishing I was ugly because of the way men leered at and disrespected me.
