Mia Wasikowska appears in the pages of British Vogue’s September issue.
The 22-year-old star of the film “Lawless” is enjoying her job but does admit to missing home. “Back in Canberra our house is very chaotic,” she said. “My younger brother is there while he’s studying, and my dad and my sister, her boyfriend and her baby, so there’s always someone somewhere. I really miss that hive of activity when I’m living in a hotel room. And I have the outdoors here, which I love. The garden back home is like a fantastical reality.”
The actress insists it’s easy to stay grounded, though. “I never get noticed in any significant way. I never feel like a movie star. I feel like I have a constant series of surreal moments, where I’m thinking, ‘Oh wow. This is so strange for me that this is my life.’ Which is great.”
As her star promises to burn brighter and brighter, all of that could soon change.
