  • Quotes

    • Britt: (on working with George Clooney in the movie Tomorrowland) George is a big prankster. We have this big lake scene where he kept pretending that he was being eating alive by beavers. We all knew that beavers weren't eating him but he kept insisting on continually joking about it, which was pretty funny.

    • Britt: (on working with the directo Brad Bird in the movie Tomorrowland) Brad Bird is the coolest. He is awesome. He is a really great director and unlike anyone else I've ever worked for. He comes from animation so his vision on story is unlike anyone I've ever met before. It's incredible to be in his presence on a daily basis, to hear what he has to say and collaborate with him. It's really cool.

    • Britt: (on the process to get ready for the movie Delievery Man) I try to approach most projects going in to them. But for this film we had one day of rehearsal,Vince and I did, where we read the scenes a little bit. We spoke about the scene and things that we wanted to do when we started shooting. But thenVince is the type of guy who doesn't love a lot of rehearsals. He likes to fly by the seat of his pants and will have the scene already entirely blocked out. He won't rehearse really, they'll just be rolling and then he'll go for it. He always wants the rehearsal to be on camera, which I totally get. After working with him I understand that process and think its fun.

    • Britt: (on her favorite scene in the Delievery Man movie, when in the park playing guitar and singing) I remember just looking around at Vince, answering all these questions and chatting with all the people, just being a really kind and generous human. I thought it was just so sweet, there was this really cool camaraderie. It was cool because he was taking the time to give these people something to hold onto as a memory. He's like an iconic guy, so he really did take the time to talk to everybody and have some laughs.

    • Britt: (on learning from Vince Vaughn) I learned a lot from Vince. As a comedian I think he's totally brilliant — the way his mind works, it's incredible. The fact that he can transition into these kind of roles, that's exactly what you want to do as an actor, convey these different emotions that impact the audience in different ways. He's able to do that effortlessly.

    • Britt: (on working with Vince Vaughn in the movie Deliery Man) Overwhelming, really. He's kind of a powerhouse kind of guy. When he arrives on set, the energy goes up. It's kind of like working in live theater, actually.

    • Britt: (on her role with in the movie Delievery Man) My pants are really baggy and I got to wear tennis shoes. In the shoot I was coming off of, I had to wear high heels every day and tight tops in really cold weather. Playing a drug addict was a little sloppier and more my style of working. Kristen's like this really feisty chick who's wild, but then has these really sincere moments with Vince. For a part that was kind of minor in the film, I felt I got to explore a lot of different things and ranges of emotion.

    • Britt: (on her filming the movie Delievery Man) It was awesome! It was everything I hoped it would be. It was really fun and I got to look like crap every day and I'm so into that!

    • Britt: (on her acting superstitions) I never talk about auditions. Even if I've got the role I won't tell people until we're literally filming it.

    • Britt: (on her biggest pet peeve) I don't like when people put their dishes in the dishwasher without scrubbing them properly because it comes out with those little white dots and then you can't get those out. And you have to rewash them.

    • Britt: (on having a bad roommate) I have, for a year. She painted a mural in my room then proceeded to have all her friends sign their names in the closet, and I still haven't been able to get rid of those names.

    • Britt: (on she realized she wanted to be an actress) I was 11 and watching soap operas with my mom and I thought it would be cool to be an actor. I thought soap operas was going to be the dream at the time — it's obviously now not the dream, but I think soap operas are really cool. Maybe I'll go back to that.

    • Britt: (on her relationship with the family) I am close, too close with my family. I recently lived in North Carolina, working on a show, and I saw them more than any person should see their family in a year's time.

    • Britt: (on her car selection and the importance of safety) I bought a car, but not just any car, I bought a Volvo which was the safest on the road at the time. It's not any more so I upgraded to the Mercedes.

    • Britt: (on the aspect she finds interesting in the movie making process) I just always wanted to sit in a casting session and see all of the train wrecks that come in. It's like American Idol, you come in and see these awesome people and then the next person is laughable.

    • Britt: (on her alternative career if she wasn't acting) No, I don't know, I always say marine biology, but, realistically, that's never going to happen, so if I wasn't an actor I would probably be an agent or a casting director.

    • Britt: (on playing high-school roles while she is already in her early 20s) I am afraid to go out of the high school world in a way. I feel like I have finally honed in on this high school world and I am figuring it out so why not take advantage of it while people still buy me as a high schooler? The other thing is, I don't even think people would buy me as a 20-year-old. That's my biggest hiccup with trying to age in characters. There have been times where I have been playing a 16-year-old and people have been like, 'She still looks 12'. I'm like, 'I'm 22. What do you mean I don't look 16?' So I'm comfortable just rocking my young body.

    • Britt: (on filming the shows Secret Circle and Life Unexpected) With those shows, everything needed to be completely fitted. We were filming in Vancouver so I am always trying to stuff as many pairs of heat warmers and long johns under my jeans as possible. So I am constantly bulging out – ya know, my knee is lopsided and my calf is bigger than normal – so we had a lot of wardrobe malfunctions due to weather restrictions.

    • Britt: (on some awkward scenes in the movie The First Time) All those things are so awkward – being young and trying to find your way. I don't know that there was anything that was particularly awkward. We always just had a fun time together.

    • Britt: (on the building chemistry with her The First Time co-star, Dylan O'Brien) We had three weeks of rehearsal before we started shooting to get comfortable with one another and to hang out and get to know each other and hear stories. I think that was what really helped with the chemistry.

    • Britt: (on her chemistry with her The First Time co-star, Dylan O'Brien) Just from the beginning, he was so open and so sweet, and I think because he hadn't been in the industry long, he was really personable and it didn't feel like an actor meeting an actor. It just kind of felt like we were hanging out and having a good time.

    • Britt: (on the support she receives) I have the cutest friends and fans in the whole world!! Thank you so much everyone for your love and support!

    • Britt: (on her liking Miley Cyrus) I love Miley no matter what.

    • Britt: I think every project you're able to do is a stepping stone. In the beginning, you get experience, so people take you more seriously.

    • Britt: (on Steve Carell) You would think that he would be a little more crazy and out there than he actually is. He's just this kind of down-to-earth, low key, family guy. And it's really refreshing because he's so great as the over-the-top comedian-type guy. He's so funny, but it's a different kind of funny than the way he is in most of his comedies.

    • Britt: I really do love sports, but it's kind of a hazard when you're an actor.

    • Britt: Dianne Wiest is the most inspiring woman. She is one of the most wonderful actors I have ever met.

    • BrBrittttany: (on working with Steve Carell, Juliette Binoche, and Dane Cook) Just to have scenes with them and watch them and observe them as a young actress... It's really inspiring.

    • Britt: A lot of great actors don't even get as far as doing a commercial, because it's about the right time and the right place and it doesn't necessarily happen for everyone, even if you're the best actor in the world.

    • Britt: (on her idol Natalie Portman) She did a great job of becoming a child star and growing up to be a wonderful adult actor. You don't see her in the media in a negative light and she has an amazing education. She has kind of the ideal career.

    • Britt: I think I'm just really fortunate to have been able to do what I've done, but I have such high aspirations for what's to come.

    • Britt: I don't like going to parties with people I don't really know or aren't really friends with. I would rather stay at home with close friends and kickback around my neck of the woods.

    • Britt: I think I'm on top of my game in a sense that I have a great professional team, I have a great manager, I have a great agent and I've been really fortunate to work on some great projects.

    • Britt: I think that's one of the great things about being an actor is that you're always learning something new. ... So you just learn and grow from what other people have experienced through their careers.

    • Britt: I'm just kind of normal. There's not many things I really get to do besides work that I really enjoy.

    • Britt: When I was younger, I loved entertaining. I would always entertain my parents and put on shows for everyone.

    • Britt: (comparing herself and her character in "Dan in Real Life") We have similarities. Like I don't necessarily agree with my parents on everything, so I kind of understood where she was coming from. But she's much more passionate than I am, so it was kind of fun to tackle a person like that.
