Wasikowska lets Lack in to a certain extent. The actress talks adolescence, her fear of the teenage years, and why she's "plagued" by the idea of maturity. "I didn’t have a typical teenagehood, so I have a lot of repressed rebellious teen left over," she confesses. "Every now and then I’ll act out in some unusual way." What that means is anyone's guess since she's such a pro at keeping clear of controversy.
And, that's just great. She might feel torn between adulthood and rebellion, but she's definitely found a footing in Hollywood. Wasikowska's got three films coming out this spring, with Only Lovers Left Alive being the first. It's so subtle you might have missed it, but this is the year of Wasikowska. And, that's just the way she'd like it to be — the quiet top dog dressed in couture.
