My motto is… live, laugh, love.
I can’t stand it when… people talk with their mouths open.
Very few people know that I… am double jointed in my hands.
Hollywood is… crazy.
I’m inspired by… talented people.
I get really sad when… I watch sad movies.
I want to see… Eat, Pray, Love coming out with Juila Roberts.
I want to throw up when… I see very gory scenes in horror movies.
I’m not very good at… drawing, but I wish I was.
In show biz you have to learn… confidence.
In my next life… I’m going to be a chef.
Never trust a man who… lies on the first date.
