It's an art film. It should be playing in museums. It's like an Andy Warhol movie. You hear about these actresses who avoid going to fashion shows lest they not be taken seriously. I don't like going because it's such a circus.
But I'm not ashamed to admit it: Fashion is superficial, but I love it. I had a great family life - I would never want it to look as if it reflected on them. I think I was very bored, and I did just love taking hallucinogens.
But I often feel it's because I experimented when I was younger that I have no interest as an adult. I know a lot of adults who didn't, and it's much more dangerous when you start experimenting as an adult. I don't want to be a movie star or be famous; I just want to do a few good movies and maybe move some people.
I'm ambitious, but I'm not ambitious enough to move to Los Angeles. I had an agent once who said that in an audition you have to make the women want to be you and the men want to fuck you. I said, I'm sorry, I can't just go into a room and, like, try to achieve that. That's not my motivation in life. I've never felt like I had very much to say. Maybe that'll come later in life. As of late , I am more of a homebody. I like having people over.
You can smoke in the apartment. I'm just not into going out so much. The crowd is getting younger and younger. I was actually in some commercials when I was a kid. And then my mother pulled because she thought the world was a little too twisted and she wanted me to be a kid more.
And so they hired a professional actress, Mia Kirshner and then two days before shooting they fired her and hired me, so that's someone else's misfortune. I was having a very difficult time in school. I was dissatisfied with the town we lived in. It's not what you spend but how you wear it that counts.
The key is often to dress up inexpensive basics with accessories. Something like a beautiful designer bag or belt can make everything else look richer and more luxurious. When I was younger, I was really anti-Hollywood. Now I'm more accepting of it because I'm less of a snob. In Hollywood, you can't say anything bad about anybody or everyone is going to attack you. It's like you always have to put on a happy face, be the phony baloney, and I'm so not that.
I never was that; I'll never be that. That is part of the business that I don't like. My first job was in sixth grade, sweeping the clay tennis courts at the yacht club near my house, which I was not a member of. Always had to pay my own rent. But I don't really have any concept of how money works.
I don't know how much things cost. Or a quart of milk. I think it's just a lot more pressure to make the scenes work when you're doing a film, because when you're doing a series you feel like, I have so many scenes, so many episodes, so if I don't get it exactly right this time, I have another scene later.
You feel less pressure. I was very troubled, yes. Me and my brother both - we were troubled and troublemakers. I used to be more suspicious, paranoid. I worried that I wasn't smart enough or pretty enough or talented enough.
Everywhere I went, I'd wonder, what are people thinking about me? What are they saying? I couldn't go to a Friday night movie for fear people would heckle me! But after 30, you just stop worrying so much. You start caring about things that are more important. It seemed like everyone had BMWs and Jeeps and nice cars and a lot of money, and I just thought it was really obnoxious. Maybe I wasn't fair. But I didn't want to get involved with all that.
We went to the Great Wall of China, and when we were walking on it, it was a really warm sunny day, and then we got to the top and all of a sudden this crazy windstorm happened. It was spring, and all of these cherry-blossom petals were swirling around in the wind.
And then all of a sudden it started snowing! So this is gonna be in our December issue, whose theme is Home. It sounds like Vision Street Wear was kind of part of your growing up in the suburbs. What else was home for you? Well for me it was very much my bedroom. I was really into my bedroom. From when I was a really small girl on, I would pick every fabric, every color on the walls, and I was always redecorating. Like once every couple of months I would redecorate my room.
I had a full wall that was all collage—the entire wall—when I was in junior high. And then it would kind of morph with me as I was growing. My room was a real way of expressing myself. It was like a little nest that I could settle into. And it was on the first floor, so…[ laughs ] we had a one-story house, so it was easy to hop out the window and sneak out at night. It was the worst.
But [sneaking out] was very easy. Because it was a one-story house—like a ranch house—you could just hop out the window. It was nothing untoward—we were just French kissing, or doing innocent things. It was the thrill of it. It depended on the year. I would photograph it, too. Mark Gonzales, who rode for Vision Skateboards, left, and the skaters were really upset with the way that Vision were running the brand and marketing them, so Mark and another guy started Blind.
I had his photo on my wall. Kim, from Sonic Youth—I had her picture. I had different things my brother had drawn in art class, too. Current high school art, I had a lot of that up—things that I had done and different friends had done. Is there anything you would tell a teenage version of yourself, if you could?
I wish I had focused on school more. I was really not into academics. That was part of how I rebelled. And I think that if I had stuck with it, and then gone on to college—I started working right after high school—I think I probably would be a more confident person right now. Which is a boring kind of thing your mother would say to you! That is really how I feel.
And I wish that my parents had been harder on me about it. Which is fine—I was into my own things, you know, and wrote papers about the Lower East Side and immigrants in New York and the Nation of Islam, and weird things like that. But I wish I had paid more attention and focused more on school. I just get really despondent when I get there.
It was a pretty small town. There were less than kids at my school. We went to other towns looking for kids, because our school was pretty tiny, for a public high school. I would go to the surrounding towns—Greenwich, New Canaan, Westport—and find the other kids. And then I would of course come into Manhattan, and I started working at Sassy , and, you know, hanging out in Washington Square, and met lots of kids here, and that opened up a whole other thing for me.
Like, going from an outsider to an insider, in a way? I mean I am a bit, I guess, in fashion—I feel like I was always embraced by fashion. Fashion embraces the weirdos. There are always young people that people in fashion are interested in.
You know, youth and vitality and energy—it brings something different. But I never felt like an insider in Hollywood in any way, shape, or form.
