The "Looper" star had a stutter as a child until acting came into her life. “I’d try to push the words out, but it was frustrating," she recalls. "My parents took me to speech coaches and relaxation coaches. It didn’t work. Then one of my teachers at school had a brilliant idea and said, ‘Why don’t you speak in an accent in our school play?’ I distanced myself from me through this character, and it was so freeing that my stuttering stopped when I was onstage."
