I have a few girlfriends, but nearly all my friends are guys. I don't think I ever wore girl clothes. I wore baggy jeans, baggy T-shirts, sweaters, just to avoid the looks that everyone gives you when you're a young female in the world.
My favourite actors are all dead or dying. I just love Jimmy Stewart, Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn - I was named after her - and Cary Grant. I just love old black and white movies and the stars in them. It must have been a great time to be in Hollywood.
I'm a working actor, so I do pretty much whatever comes along because it's my job.
My roots are Scottish. My dad's parents are from Scotland, and my mum's dad is Scots.
I don't have any friends from my childhood because I didn't stay at one school for very long.

Horror movies scare me. I don't really watch them. I'm not a big horror genre fan. I like certain classic horror - like 'Alien', 'Jaws', 'The Exorcist', stuff like that.
I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to seeing potentially horrifying things on the Internet.
I understand, as the young, attractive woman in film, that there's always going to be people seeking out extra salacious things for you to do.
