I went through a big time of depression between 23 and 25, I couldn’t go where I wanted to go, I was in the tabloids every day and I didn’t have access to the roles I really wanted. I wanted more, on every level. I finally realised that you needed to earn this change I so desperately wanted. I saw Kristen leave to film ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, Taylor was also doing his thing on the side, and I was just going in circles, asking myself if I was going to take a break and go back to music. Then one day David [Cronenberg] called and I went crazy.

The tabloid industry does terrible, terrible things for the world. It makes people stupid, People say [tabloids] are about escapism, and people have got to get away from the misery of the world. It’s like, ‘No, people are lazy, and they don’t want to try.’ … Every time I’ve looked at a magazine like that, I’ve regretted it. I gain absolutely nothing from it. And neither does anyone else.
