ON WHY SHE DECIDED TO COME OUT:
“The more time went by, the more something just happened, an Oh my god—I want to love someone freely and walk down the street and hold my girl- friend’s hand.”

ON WHY SHE HESITATED TO COME OUT:
“You think you’re in a place where you’re all I’m thrilled to be gay, I have no issues about being gay anymore, I don’t feel shame about being gay, but you actually do. You’re just not fully aware of it. I think I still felt scared about people knowing. I felt awkward around gay people; I felt guilty for not being myself.”

ON WHY SHE JOINED THE X-MEN FRANCHISE:
“I was interested in experiencing what that kind of film- making meant. The amazing thing about X-Men is that, despite the extremity of the circumstance and the superhero nature of it, the story is deeply human and deeply moving.”
