Ella Purnell Quotes
The detail that goes into couture stuff is insane. Everything is handmade - every sequin, every double stitch.
I don't want to inspire people to look pretty and buy makeup. I want to inspire them to knit scarves for Syrian refugees.
The real friends are the ones who celebrate with you.
All women are strong, and we don't need to write stronger female roles; what we need to start writing is real women that have emotions and have real-life thoughts.
It's very hard to not give in, to sell your soul: to flatter a more experienced male person of power, a producer or director, in order to get what you want. You feel a pressure to flutter your eyelashes and flirt because you know that will work, and I think it's admirable to not do that.
I don't know any 21-year-old who's not having an existential crisis.
I'd like to be smart, fun, and real. It's very easy to just put together a pretty dress, some heels, and some jewels. I don't want to be that girl. It's all about being brave, taking risks. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Keira Knightley remains one of my mentors. I absolutely love her and will turn to her for industry advice or reassurance or validation at any time. She is very classy and elegant and lovely. I have a bit of a woman-crush on Keira.

What I love about this job is it's literally a different day every single day, isn't it? One day you're a nurse, the next day you're in a band - you can just make it up. I'm just a big kid, and that's really what this job is - just playing dress-up every day.
I think passion in a physical way goes hand in hand with taste and smell.

There's a joke in my family that I'm going to make a career out of playing other people's younger selves.
I want to be a part of a movie that changes people's conceptual framework, and suddenly you see things in a different way.
Growing up and working at the same time is difficult.
I can't just pretend to be someone else all my life. I have to mix it up.
The 1950s is my favourite era.
I've acted for as long as I can remember, really.
I'm blessed with being quite secure - not necessarily about my looks, but if someone says, 'I don't like what you're wearing,' I am never going to go and cry about it. I think that does come with age, though.
I'm really interested in food now. I never used to be. I always used to just eat when I'm hungry, and now it's an experience.
I love pasta. It's something in the water. The pasta and the bread in New York are so good.
