The 23-year-old actress and singer, who wore a gown by Jason Wu on the cover, shot a beautiful spread of photos and sat down to talk singing, her dogs and self-reflection…
On her love for singing: “As an actor, you learn about yourself and other people through the exploration of your characters, but it’s not entirely yourself. So it’s really beautiful and cathartic to have the ability to write your own songs and speak from your own heart about things that are important to you.”
On taking time off between projects: “I don’t work constantly. I think that can get you into a pattern going from set to set where you don’t have time for self reflection and to be a real person or enjoy life. And if you don’t enjoy your life and your friends, I don’t know how you can be an artist who’s at all effective or in touch with reality.”
On how she stays sane: “I play with my Yorkie and my Chihuahua. I also dance and try to take ballet every day.”
