I originally passed on it because I was like, "Why are they remaking that movie?! I hadn't even read the script but then, out of the blue, the casting director called me and then the producer, whom I'd never met, called me on my cell and said, "You just need to watch this director's last film, Hardcore (2004)". They sent it over to me and I watched it that night. Ten minutes into it, I completely saw a whole new vision of what I thought "Last House" could be with this director's vision in mind. And his film is brilliant and he's a brilliant director, so I'm every happy that I ultimately made that decision. I'm so, so proud of that film. It's a very artistic, fun, crazy, dark film [on taking the role in The Last House on the Left (2009)]. Hide

I really believe that if you want some sort of longevity in this business, it's all about picking the right roles. Finally, this is the first time in my career I'm able to work [based on] the roles, and not to survive, so I'm just trying to be picky. I just want the right project. I'd rather not work than work on something that I'm not so unbelievably excited about. Maybe that's the wrong choice, but I don't really care, to be honest. I just want to do something, even if it's just a small little indie, that really makes me excited, that's very story-driven, character-driven and doesn't need those big explosions or car chases.

Fame changes people. How can it not? It's almost impossible not to. But I'm thirty years old and have a grasp of who I am, but when you're seventeen you think you know everything, but you truly are an infant, still very much learning. [2010 quote on fame] Hide

I loved working, obviously. But I would just go to work and then go back to the hotel and I couldn't find much to do. But when we started shooting the series I fell in love with the city. I'm from Boise, Idaho and it reminds me of a bigger version of that place. It's just nice to get away from the hustle of Los Angeles and the skies are endless out there. It's like a beautiful painting every day. Hide
