Hi Cara. You play a really popular girl in the movie Paper Towns that knows how to lure a guy out of his shell. Is there any of you in this character?
At school, I wasn’t that person at all (laughs). I was probably the opposite.
Were you a shy wallflower?
No, I wasn’t shy that’s for sure. Actually, I’m all about making people feel comfortable. If someone in the group is the shyest person, I’ll make sure they’re having a good time. I don’t know if [my character] Margot is completely aware of the power she has over Quentin [played by Nat Wolff] Maybe I’m like that? I’m not sure.
Who were your role models when you were little?
I had more guys as my role models that’s why I find it quite sad. I was a Tomboy and I liked to play with cars and Action Men. But I loved the Spice Girls.
Which Spice Girl did you want to be?
It would change. It started as Baby and then it went to Sporty and then, Geri.
You’ve recently been singing with Pharrell. Did you approach him?
We did a shoot a long time ago, and I always sing and make stupid noises with my mouth. He noticed and was like: “You have something.” Then we became friends, and that’s how it happened. Music is something I am going to do for the rest of my life. I’ve done it since I was eight years old, and whether it’s going to be a public thing, who knows? I write my own songs and I’m the hardest person on myself. If an album were to come out, it would really have to be f*****g good!
