As a matter of fact, the 23-year-old actress explained that she’s been able to really reflect on things that matter to her most during her time off. Given that’s she’s “been through some s–t” in the last year, she wanted to prioritize herself.
“I needed to learn self-love, basically. It’s a very hard thing to do. How the f–k do you love yourself,” she asked, later admitting that she felt “very lost” at the beginning of the pandemic.
“I felt very sad and hopeless, because of personal things that were happening in my life,” she revealed. “Instead of distracting myself, f–king random people and doing drugs and drinking my problems away, I chose the harder route, which was to not distract myself.”
“I was like, ‘I’m not doing that. I’m going to go through the next however many months of s–t, pure s–t, awful, crying every day, but the necessary work,'” she explained, noting that she’s witnessed many stars opt for the easy route.
“I’ve seen too many people, especially in Hollywood, choose self-destruction,” she said. “I understand it because no one wants to feel pain. No one wants to feel grief, or heartache, or sadness. ‘Do I want to grieve, or do I want to sleep with someone?’ Hmm. You can very clearly see why people choose destruction. But your s–t’s still waiting for you at the end of it.”
