- On sexism: "Women inevitably have to work a little bit harder to be heard. Hollywood is disgustingly sexist. It's crazy. It's so offensive it's crazy."
- On sex scenes: "I only hate them when they're contrived. That's when it's grotesquely uncomfortable. On Twilight we had to do the most epic sex scene of all time. It had to be transcendent and otherworldly, inhuman, better sex than you can possibly ever imagine, and we were like, 'How do we live up to that?' It was agony. Which sucks, because I wanted it to be so good."
- On other actresses' sex scenes: "I just even question when a fairly established actress does a scene in a movie when she shows her boobs and she hasn't done it up until this moment, and maybe she only did it for the prestigious part and it's okay for this time because it's classy, and I'm like, 'Oh God, thank you for revealing to the world your treasure.'"
- On weight and health: "I'm a little bigger than sample size when I'm eating cheeseburgers and am happy and comfortable. If I'm stressed or working, the weight falls off. My weight and my sleep are tied to my nervous system. Sometimes I'll sleep for 12 hours a night and sometimes sleep just doesn't exist for me for a couple of months."
