a lot of her print interviews around the winter's bone era showed just how ambitious she is. idk if i'd use the word cutthroat, though, but if she really wants a role, she pretty much admitted that she doesn't think anyone else can play it, and will do anything to get it. she's definitely not always as super lighthearted as she is in interviews, BUT i don't think anyone should dislike her for that, if they don't dislike the whole acting industry/actors in general. you HAVE to hustle like that to get this far. mega props to her. and at least she's honest about this stuff.
