"Last year was my first time talking about a movie ever, and I just didn't know how to do it! It was like a first everything. Now, after a year of doing press, I’m feeling a lot more confident and I know more of what to expect. So, it’s actually enjoyable."
"I’m not good [at skiing], so no, I won't go. I don't think I'd make it off the lift! I’m afraid of heights, and all I’m thinking about is falling. You have to jump off of it and it keeps moving? What?! I don’t understand how people do that. I just have no desire."
"Well, I always wear leather pants — always from The Row, but today, I opted out for some cords instead. I live in New York, so I really just wear whatever I wear there, here."
"It’s funny to be asked that because I don’t live with them, and they don’t dress me. Like, I’m an adult, ha! If I need to go to some sort of an event, a premiere or something, I’ll ask Mary-Kate if I can go into her closet — they have a bunch of samples that I just grab up."
"I used to do it a lot more, but I’ve overgrown them by a lot. I overgrew them in high school, and then all of my friends started getting their hand-me-downs. So I’ll be like “Hey Eliza, what is that dress?' to one of my best friends. And she'll say, 'Oh, its Mary-Kate’s, she’s getting rid of some stuff.' And I'm always like, 'Great, because I couldn’t fit into it!'"
"Definitely Marni and Céline. I wore an orange floral Proenza Schouler dress that I was like obsessed with to the W magazine pre-Golden Globes party. I also love Isabel Marant; I don’t have anything of hers, but I love her. Some pieces of Carven fit me so well — it’s always nice to have that. Yeah, I actually think Carven is probably my top designer right now. I’m actually not very good with all this designer stuff. I just know basic ones."
"I’m actually waiting out the winter in L.A. right now. Last year’s winter in NYC was just way too cold. I just moved into a part-time home with my girl friend.
"I go by Lizzie every time I make reservation or meet people in a non-business way. I’ve started to introduce myself as Elizabeth in the industry, because people get confused about what to call me, and I get confused, too! But I’m going to use my legal name with everything for film."
"I like Wasteland, I’m a total Wasteland person. I even sell my stuff there, but they are so freaking picky! I took Marni pants that didn't fit anymore, and they were like 'No, its not in season.' Every time I go there, I try and spend whatever I get paid. So, I’m at least breaking even!
"I’m not really big on cookbooks. I’m really good at finding recipes online, and kind of creating my own. I’m a big fan of Wylie Dufresne. I love gastronomy. I filmed my movie Red Lights in Barcelona, and that's kind of the center of molecular gastronomy. I had three days off, and I just got to eat! I would have the most extensive lunches by myself with the weirdest combinations, with foams and powders. I just loved that."
"I don’t have problems in either NY or L.A. I’ll have the occasional person be like 'you're in a movie, right?' In NY, you walk around, so you blend in. In L.A., they know where you live, but I’m a Valley kid, so I’m not on the other side of the hill a lot. You also just know where to go and where not to go."
