TWIST: Could you describe your character Sally for us? Emma: Sally is George's (Freddie Highmore) love interest in the movie, and I really like Sally because I feel like she's very real. She's not the popular girl, but she's not the nerd. She's kind of the middle ground between the two and I think that comes off the most real.
TWIST: How did you relate to her? Emma: Number one [was] our fashion tastes. The way she was described in the script and the way I am was very similar. It was fun to collaborate with everyone on the fashion. Also, we've all been in a position where we're finishing school, and we're having to make serious decisions, and there's a lot of transitions going on with family and friends, and having to deal with all that is very real and honest.
TWIST: Is there anything in particular about her fashion sense that appealed to you? Did you get to work with the designers? Emma: I wore a lot of my own clothes actually. On the poster the leather jacket and the brown boots are mine. I loaned [them] to Sally to give her some personality.
TWIST: Why should our readers absolutely check it out? Emma: It's one of those movies that you can always watch. It's very like 500 Days of Summer. I've seen that movie at least ten times! And there's a bunch of special features on the DVD.
TWIST: Can you tell us about any upcoming projects? Emma: I have a movie coming out next year called Celeste and Jesse Forever. It's a romantic comedy, and I play a pop star in it named Riley, and I get to be completely ridiculous. I wear crazy outfits and a hot pink wig at one point!
