00:04
When I was little, I can definitely remember
00:06
when Facebook was a thing.
00:08
And I was never aware that my eyes were far apart.
00:10
And then someone tagged me in a picture of a fish
00:13
and they were like, This is you
00:14
'cause your eyes are like here.
00:16
I was really upset about it and I didn't enjoy it.
00:18
And I kind of stopped looking in mirrors
00:19
for a very long time.
00:21
I still don't really spend a lot of time in front of
00:23
mirrors because I don't really have to deal with my face.
00:26
It became common knowledge in the playground that if you
00:28
wanted me to catch a ball,
00:29
you had to throw it at the side of my head.
00:31
'Cause if you threw it straight here I'd just be like,
00:33
Oh my god, what, what happened?
00:35
What's going on?
00:37
Crazy people are kind of, they're kind of my thing.
00:39
Like, I mean like crazy people.
00:41
Or people that just, I guess, have a different way of
00:44
coping with life that's not considered normal.
00:47
I think that's the interesting story.
00:49
Oh gosh, my cinematic crush.
00:51
Eddie Redmayne.
00:53
You know, tall, skinny, ginger, English, winning.
00:58
Freckles, all of the freckles.
01:00
[laughing]
01:01
I turned 20 couple of weeks ago, and my parents flew in,
01:05
and I don't get to see them very often,
01:07
and so it was really, really nice.
01:08
And they took me to see The Crucible.
01:10
Saoirse was there, and she was so nice.
01:12
And she like walked me across like the,
01:14
you know, the theater floor.
01:15
And we were talking about our movies and witches
01:17
and I was just like, I'm not okay.
01:20
I'm so not chill.
01:21
Like, I will be chill in like a month.
01:24
But until then, and I actually said that to her.
01:26
I was like, Look, you're so nice.
01:28
I really want to be your friend but like I need some time.
01:30
I need to take, like, a breather.
01:33
And then we can be friends and then it'll be great.
01:35
