“Oftentimes we [on set] talk about her as the collective consciousness,” she revealed.

“I think she has a sincerity that’s very endearing. She’s sort of constantly f**king up royally, but she’s doing it wholeheartedly. I don’t know if I identify with it, but it’s something I aspire to, to do everything with such commitment.”
