On Jennifer:
"[She] said, "You must do it. You will not regret it for a second. Yes, there are some hard things, but there are so many beautiful things that will come from an opportunity like this."

On "Divergent":
"Having come off a TV show, I was kind of in the place where I was like, 'I'm never signing a contract for more than one movie,' because once you do sign a contract, legally, you're liable. [Even] if you don't find something creatively stimulating anymore, you're still got to do it legally."

On her love for the environment:
"I'm going to be a citizen for this planet, and I'm going to do my responsibility and live in stride with nature instead of constantly fighting with her."

On her views on sex scenes:
"When somebody's doing a sex scene and they're wearing a bra and underwear, that's not how it happens in real life. If I'm going to say yes to a movie where this is necessary, then I'm going to be bring truth to that situation."
