Here’s what the 27-year-old pregnant Girls actress had to share with the magazine:
On acting: “I hated it. I hadn’t established myself as a painter, not just in the outside world, but inside. Here I am doing something that’s bigger than anything I’ve ever done as an artist, and that could sabotage things for me.”
On painting portraits: “When someone comes in and they sit down with you, you get your first impression, but if you’re really paying attention all these other traits start to come out. It’s like an X-ray, but not as black and white. It’s a kind of magic.”
On being a mother to a one-year-old daughter Rafaella: “When you’re not the only person you have to think about, you suddenly grow 10 years—in a good way. I do feel sometimes that there’s this freedom I don’t have that [my castmates] have and they can’t really understand what it’s like until they’re a mother, too. Sometimes I miss it, but not enough to want to be back there.”
