On growing up in Texas...

"I was so weird. I was the girl at school with the tattoos and the locks. That would be cool with people at school but I never had 'my group.' I had two kids to raise too — my sisters. I did everything by myself. I didn’t want anyone to feel my weight. So I kept it all in."

On starring in the new Hellboy...

"I had to take myself deeper because I’m doing green screen, I have a London accent and it was so physical. The stunts were cool, great for de-stressing. You get to learn moves like flipping off someone’s shoulders when you’re shooting them — when would you ever do that in real life?"

 

On maintaining good mental health...

"Me and Sergio (Sasha's brother) literally start the day dancing. Music and dancing make me feel good. We dance to everything, from the chillest to the hypest. Sometimes I feel like my colors control me, so I try to check myself like, 'OK, I’m feeling like this so I’m going to put on a s**t ton of pink and glitter and make this my day.'"

On how often she buys clothes...

"Never! Imma take it when they give it to me but also, one, the way I live my life, I can’t fathom spending money on things like that and, two, I’m gonna roll around in some dirt, I’m gonna spill paint on it! Every once in a while, I’ll spend money on scrunchies and cool socks, maybe? If that. I do love fashion, though, because as you saw on the shoot it can positively affect my mood."
