From Lauren with Love

"For the record, feminism by definition is: ‘The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.’
I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press.When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.”When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive.
Why is the word such an uncomfortable one?”

“Are you kidding? I feel no pressure. The only thing I feel is happiness to be on the show! Honestly, it would be inappropriate that I’m complaining! In Hollywood, you have so many girls who would love to be me. Just to have the chance to approach Stephen Amell! And… touch him!”

“I first met Emily on the third episode.. She was supposed to be in one episode! And it was my first… Actually, it was my first opportunity as the lead in a series to try to make a gues star confortable. It’s actually my first real scene where I have lots of dialogues with somebody that wasn’t a core part of our cast. When I did ‘Private Practice’, Amy Brenneman who I had all my scenes with, she went out of her way to make sure before we shot our first scene I was incredibly confortable. We chatted about our family, about our partners…And by the time it came to shoot our scene wich was a very intimate scene I couldn’t have been more at ease. So I remember thinking “Here’s my opportunity with Emily, to really try and make her feel at home, and happy and confortable.” And when we shot that scene, she did first… We shot my coverage first, and when she said my name or did her little things for the first time and I laughed? That was legitimate. Like, I was not expecting it and it just made me crack up, so it’s… Right from the start we’ve always just had a nice, easy time doing scenes together.”
