It used to bother me - having bigger, fuller brows. I even plucked them once so I’d fit in, but I hated them and couldn’t wait for them to grow back. Now I embrace them. I realized the quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful.
I feel like no matter what you wear as long as you own it and you’re comfortable in it, it will show. You own whatever you wear, you don’t want the outfit to own you. I think I have grown just more confident in knowing my shape and what works on me. When something feels good you feel like something represents you the best
I don’t choose projects according to the idea of being a role model. To be considered as one, is definitely an honor. It’s something that I don’t think you really search to become a role model. Or at least I try to maintain my sense of self and choose roles that speak to me in some way and challenge me but in my everyday life staying true to what I believe in and being open and honest about it and if that is then I guess thought of as being a role model, then that’s definitely an honor to be thought of that way but it’s not like I search for roles that will allow me to be that.
"I think it’s just important to not judge people based on their physicality because it’s really about personality and people’s hearts and souls. That’s what drew me to Audrey Hepburn who is kind of like my icon."
"She is wonderful. Look at her, she’s a vision. Beautiful girl, sweet and kind, and you know, just a joy to be around" - Jamie Campbell Bower

I think there is something great about seeing someone as a character because you don’t know them that well as themselves,” I like to be able to watch movies and not know too much about someone personally. I don’t want to be tainted by thinking, ‘Oh my god, they had the best pasta last week.
No, I like to wear as least amount of makeup as I can during my everyday life because I'm just all about keeping my skin healthy and hydrated and I love to laugh and have a great time and smile, that's when I feel the most pretty.
"I’ve always loved fantasy. I grew up reading these kinds of stories and just disappearing in my own head.”
People always ask if I feel more American or British. The truth is that I love the way of life, the humour and the fashion in Europe. I love the tea and the food. I feel at home when I’m back here: I feel like little Lily again.
