Lane is in the latest edition of GQ, and talks about her discovery, and it sounds like the fairy tale no one has believed for decades. It turns out that while Lane was on spring break in Florida, writer/director Andrea Arnold was watching her.
Among other things, the film features a romance, of sorts, between Lane and LeBeouf. You might imagine a lot goes into pulling off a really good sex scene, and while that may be true, Lane says it all comes down to “breathing” and “eye contact.”
Things have worked out pretty well so far, as Lane already has two more films (Hunting Lila and Shoplifters of the World) in pre-production.
