Personal Quotes (3)

Some people say they eat to live, I live to eat.
Every time I saw him (Jared Leto) on set he introduced himself as the Joker! I would try to say hi to him as Karen, and he would come at me with full Joker. Haha, it gets weird every time.
[on the second audition for Suicide Squad] I remember the room wasn't very big, and they had big photo lights on either side of me. During my sword-fighting portion of the audition, I tried to calculate my arm's length and the sword's length so I wouldn't hit those things. But it was cutting it really close, and when you're in the zone, you can't really be careful because you're going all out. I hit one of the lights, and I remember hearing the casting director and David gasp. But I just kept going with it, and I think that's what David liked, that I didn't stop in the middle."
