In 2014, she also bagged the lead role in Julie Plec's and Sue Kramer's rom-com Cover Girl.[20]

She played Beverly in Richard Linklater's Everybody Wants Some!! (2016), which is based on Linklater’s own experience on the baseball team of a Texas university, a “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused (1993).[21] Everybody Wants Some!! was earlier named That’s What I’m Talking About.[22] She has worked in comedy Dirty Grandpa opposite Robert De Niro and Zac Efron.[23] She played Shadia, an earthy environmental advocate and love interest to Efron’s character in Dirty Grandpa.[24] In 2016, she appeared in Why Him? alongside James Franco, Bryan Cranston and Megan Mullally.[25] She played bubbly and tattooed girl Kate opposite Emory Cohen[26] in crime drama Vincent-N-Roxxy alongside Emile Hirsch and Zoe Kravitz.[27] The movie premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, 2016.[28]
