On Lolita (1997): "I don't think there needs to be a movie out where a child has sex with an adult."
On Lolita (1997): I think there's enough exploitation out there that it's not nescessary to do more.
Young actors often don't think of the consequences of doing nudity or sex scenes. They want the role so badly that they agree to be exploited, and then end up embarassing family, friends, and even strangers.
On acting: "I started to do this at age 11. At age 20, I might say, this is enough."
On violence in the media: "We live in a violent world, but since the success of films like Pulp Fiction (1994), it seems every movie has some violence in it, and it's now being used as a form of comedy: audiences are now being encouraged to laugh when people get their heads blown off. I just don't like hearing people laugh at violence."
I also feel I'm a positive role model by not putting my education on hold.
I want to use college to explore what other careers I might be interested in.
On acting: "I'm taking it day by day. Right now I like acting, but if something else sparks my interest in college, I'll do that. It's so limiting to say, this is it for the rest of my life. There are so many things that interest me: I love math, science, literature, languages."
On Lolita (1997): "Let me tell you, this movie's going to be sleaze."
I'm going to college. I don't care if it ruined my career. I'd rather be smart than a movie star.
I don't know if acting is what I want to do for the rest of my life, it's just what I've, you know, ended up doing when I was little, and I've kinda grown up with it.
When I'm working they pretty much treat me like an adult, but then when there's a break everyone else goes to their trailers and drinks beer and I like, go to school.
There's so much else to do in the world. To just be interested in doing films would limit my life.
I think school is so much harder than real life. People are so much more accepting when they are adults.
