"I have to do things that people don't expect me to do. I have to surprise people instead of being a part of the next teen comedy because I have done that. I want to dye my hair black and be a bad ass. I think it's fun, I think it's good for me," she said.

Even the actress has plans to direct a film and she has been gathering tips on how to become a director from her "Getaway" co-star Ethan Hawke. "I have to be much better at what I do before I can direct other people. I would love that, and Ethan Hawke has given me some great advice about that, so I would, but it would have to be when I perfect a little more of the art that I do.

Then maybe I would be a little more daring! But I am still learning," she added.
