Mia sat down for the interview just days before she was set to attend the star-studded Met Ball.

She shared, “I have a reoccurring nightmare about the Met Ball. I’m a fish out of water in that kind of world. The six hours before is probably the most stressful, because you’re anticipating walking up the steps, and people yelling at you, and not knowing where to look.”

Mia made a big splash on the big screen with “Alice in Wonderland,” which led to the new sequel “Alice Through the Looking Glass.” Though her face has been seen on billboards around the world, she lived a very sheltered life as a kid. She reflected, "I don’t think I saw a billboard until I was like 12. Well, not really — but it feels a bit like that, in comparison to the awareness that’s here [in Los Angeles]. It’s nice to grow up without that, I think.”

When she’s not making movies, she looks forward to returning to her native Australia, where she spends her time reading, gardening, and honing her photography skills. She shared, "My ideal holiday is staying at home, because I feel like I am always somewhere else."
