I don't want to be typecast as a heroine who does a certain kind of cinema, which is why I experiment with the types of films that I do.

I love it when a man cooks; it's one of those points that makes me adore a guy. I think it's so romantic and I feel cared for when a man cooks. As long as it's good. I wouldn't let a man cook cabbage, though, because I'm pretty sure men can't cook cabbage.
