On chopping off her long hair after 'Harry Potter':
"The majority of boys around me were like, 'Why did you do that?' But I never felt as confident as I did with short hair."
On seeing herself on-screen in 'Perks' as not-Hermione:
"It was a pretty emotional experience! I have to say, I cried a lot the first time I watched it."
On her character in 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower':
"Sam's real. She has insecurities and a past. She's very human, and that's what drew me to play her. There are just so many teenage roles that don't have very much to do with what it's actually like to be a teenager."
On not wanting to date another actor:
"I try not to. It definitely makes me nervous. I haven't tried to make others celebrity friends or date people who are in my industry, because it's difficult and it can be really superficial. I'm lucky that most of the people I've dated I've been at university with."
On her physical qualities receiving positive attention as of late:
"I was always the smart, nerdy one. People put you in boxes, and that was my box. So it's really nice [the compliments], but looks have never been something that I focused on or that people around me did. But I liked being nerdy one."
