My favourite style icon is Jimi Hendrix. Am I allowed to say that? I just love all of the jewelry he wore and all of his elaborate colors. I like anyone who dresses in an interesting way. If I could raid anyone's closet it would be My moms. She's got the most beautiful coats and shoes that I very seldom get to borrow. It would be fun to tear apart the entire thing just to make my point
My favorite brands : "Celine, for its simple elegance, Louis Vuitton and Prada, for their blend of classicism and avant-garde, and Chanel ... because it's Chanel"
I'm kind of shy and quiet. But I'm only shy in my personal life. If I'm working, somehow I'm not and it goes away.
I think acting is a fun thing because you get to have so many lifetimes in one lifetime, being all these different people.
I feel like the original 'Mad Max' created such a vivid world, that to go back and re-imagine it and kind of replay in that sandbox sounds like fun to me.
Life changes so quickly. feeling grateful to be around such wonderful people to strengthen and grow with.
Music is my favorite thing in the world. I grew up completely around it and I think it's one of the most important things to me, but at this point I can't see myself doing that professionally. Luckily, for the most part, I don't feel pressured.
