The actress also admitted she has a lot of admiration for the directors that she’s gotten a chance to work with.  “It’s a testament to how creative the people that conceive supernatural and science-fiction kind of stories,” the 35-year-old said.  “They’re able to build something out of nothing by just imagining it.  I have a huge fascination with that.  Filmmakers like JJ [Abrams, director of Star Trek], like [Guardians director] James [Gunn], like James Cameron [director of Avatar].  You need to be really, really special to do that.  So I like being with special people.”
