She tells WENN, "I'm really small compared to everyone else in the movie because I'm short, so I was literally running around in seven inch boots the whole movie, so I could be up to the right height to everyone else (sic). I almost ate it (tripped over) a couple of times. There was a moment where I was running up some stairs late at night and I almost really took a fall."
