Wallis: Yeah, I couldn't handle lying. I was like, "Mom, you sure, you sure?" And then I went in and was like, "I'm 5," and told the truth.
Zeitlin: We decided to give her a chance anyway.
CNN: Is it true you improvised some of your lines?
Wallis: Like after (we) finished with the shooting, everybody would leave, but I had to stay. We would go to (the director's) laptop and he would have some things on the laptop --
Zeitlin: The script?
Wallis: Yeah, the script. Sometimes I forget the name. And we would just look through it, page by page, and he'd put, "Seeeeeeeee." And I had to delete the "e's."
Zeitlin: My typos, delete my typos.
Wallis: Yeah, he would put, "cain't," and I was like, "I can't say that."
Zeitlin: You'd be like, "I don't like that word, I need to change that word." And then she'd delete that, and then I'd let her type in a new one --
Zeitlin: Right. Grammar had to be improved, things like that.
CNN: Any idea of what you'd like to wear (to the Oscar ceremony)? A favorite color?
Wallis: My favorite color is -- I don't like black by itself, so every single color but just not black by itself. ... It has to have white or something, like a zebra.
CNN: Who are you taking?
CNN: Are you going with your mom?
Wallis: Yeah, normal. I can't come here by myself!
CNN: Do you want to keep acting? I know you have another film coming out later this year.
Wallis: I want to be an actress, but I want to be a dentist, so I'm going to do both.
CNN: Why a dentist? What interests you about that?
