Read excerpts from her interview below:
On her relationship…
“I’m completely in love… Before, I didn’t know what love was – real love,” she said of her relationship with American singer-songwriter Annie Clark (known by her stage name St Vincent). “I didn’t understand the depth of it. I always used to think it was you against the world. Now I know the meaning of life is love. Whether that’s for yourself or for the world or your partner.”
“As a child, I used gay as a bad world, as in, ‘that’s so gay.’ All my friends did,” she continued. “[Her parents] have been so, so supportive. I’m obviously in love, so if people want to say I’m gay, that’s great. But we’re all liquid – we change, we grow.”
On her transition to the film industry and insecurities…
“I’m still learning. I act for love. I give it my all,” she revealed of her more recent pursuit. “I would probably still do it even if I wasn’t paid at all. But in terms of equal pay I need to be paid the same as the guy who has equal billing with me. Otherwise I won’t do it. Because if you accept less, you’re just letting everyone else down and continuing the cycle.”
“My greatest fear is always that I have just been hired because of my number of followers,” she confessed.
