During her acceptance speech, she opened up about her first date when she was 15.

The Dune 2 actress expressed her gratitude towards her profession and to others who supported her along the journey. She further added,

“I think my gift is storytelling. That’s what I love to do, and it means nothing if those stories don’t get to the people they need to get to.”

She shared her thoughts on the importance of theatres,

“In a theater, that’s where someone can feel seen. That’s where someone can feel less alone. That’s when someone can escape. That’s where someone can build a new dream. I have been witness to that and I’ve experienced it myself.”

She has often spoken about gushing for Garfield. This has not been just one way as the latter has also opened up about being a fan of the former who starred with her in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Meanwhile, she is set to appear in the upcoming Dune 2 alongside Timothée Chalamet.
