“It’s really cool to work with a director who’s done so much because he knows exactly what he wants,” the 28-year-old actress told the magazine. “The fact that he does one shot for an entire scene — [and] this could be a scene with eight people and one to two takes — it gives you a level of confidence because when he’s got it, he knows he’s got it.”

Which they clearly wouldn’t and don’t. But he’s very empowering.”
