The October issue of British Vogue (available Sept. 10) features an interview with the star, though it’s not known whether it took place before or after her tryst with married director Rupert Sanders was revealed.
The actress, who will soon attend the Toronto Film Festival to promote the upcoming film On the Road, is, however, candid about her public persona.
“I know if you haven’t thought about how you want to present a very packaged idea of yourself, it can seem like you lack ambition,” the 22-year-old actress says of how she’s often perceived.
“But, dude, honestly? I can’t. People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing you want and making lots of money out of it.”
