Risky Business2 of 26
On accepting the title role of Linda Lovelace in the upcoming feature film Lovelace, in theaters Aug. 9: "I read the script and I was like, 'Wow, this is the riskiest thing that's happening [in Hollywood] right now.' The first thing you think about is that it could have ruined my career. At the same time, I was like, 'This is my chance to show them, to show the industry, to be recognized.'"
Laws of Attraction3 of 26
On the importance of physical attraction in a relationship: "Everybody I've dated I've been sexually attracted to immediately. Sparks don't grow—your vagina doesn't become more inclined to wanting someone just because you're around them."
Young Love4 of 26
On her current crush: "[He's] someone separate from my industry life—I've known him since he was 16 … I picture him as the father of my children all the time. But it is a fantasy right now."
Great Expectations5 of 26
On starring in an indie film: "Indie films are the least risky because they don't have box office expectations. Red Riding Hood? It kind of f---ed me. It didn't kill me, but it definitely wasn't the greatest thing. And I loved playing that character—I had a blast! Young girls loved it, but it didn't make the money the studio wanted it to make, so that's on my permanent record now, you know?"
