You can read the whole interview over at Flare.com. Here are some extracts:

On keeping quiet about her relationship with Johnny Depp: “It’s not part of my professional life. I want to be an artist. I don’t want to be a celebrity…You can find pictures of me [on the Internet] pumping gas, picking up dry cleaning, walking my dog, but nowhere are you going to find pictures of me hanging around at some nightclub…Can you ever imagine yourself in a situation like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, where the world feels like they have a stake in your private life? I would never want it… I guess I could not hold hands with who I want to, but what kind of life would that be? I don’t want to change just because people are watching. I’ve always been the person who says what she wants.”

On her new film, paranoia, with Liam Hemsworth: “I loved how you’re dealing with a lot of old themes like greed and power, but it’s such a modern story. My character basically had to be smart enough to manipulate Liam Hemsworth’s character. Yes, there are sex scenes, but it wasn’t like she was falling at his feet.”

On growing up different in Austin, Texas: “I hated the idea of school dances, hated whatever was going on in pop culture. I didn’t have any concept of celebrities or Hollywood. I was always reading, reading and listening to music.”

On going horror heroine over rom-com romance: “If there was an interesting rom-com script, I wouldn’t be against it, but the stuff I have gotten is just girls who are dying to get the guy or be saved by the guy…At least the female characters in horror movies fight back and do something for themselves. They’re not just sitting around waiting for a man to save the day.”

On picking the right roles: “[The script] doesn’t say that these characters are ‘sexy.’ I’m not picking them because of that. I take roles that are interesting, and scripts that have female characters with depth.”
