# “I had hoped that girls all over the world would relate to Thirteen. But I had no idea that girls I was sitting next to went through the same-things I did.”
# “I didn’t know when I finished Thirteen that I wanted to be an actress. I went back to high school, and then I realized I missed it. I had fallen in love with being on the set.”
# “I was raised by my mom. It was definitely a struggle competing with my brother who is only one year older than me. He wanted to be my older brother but I looked older than him. We were competing for my mom’s attention. There was so much tension between us that my mom backed away from us. It was so emotionally out of control.”
# “I definitely think that females have a harder time. It’s a lot harder to be a girl because you’re always in your head. I’ve heard my brother go and take it out on the football as he says. Whereas girls would rather sit down and over think things. Guys just punch a wall and I think that could be easier because that’s instant release instead of letting it build it up. But a lot of people say guys just hold it in as well.”
# “I think my mother is my biggest influence. There are so many things I hate about her but at the same time I’m thankful for her. All I know is that when I’m a parent I want to be just like my mom. I can talk to my mom more than any of my friends could talk to their parents.”
# “The number-one rule of writing is write what you know or something like that. So I wrote about my experiences.”
# “I’m doing extremes right now,. I’m doing what I love by doing independent films and writing constantly, but I’m also doing television that’s very PG and so I’m doing both ends. I’d love to do find a studio film that has independent edge and pays, which would be all three at once, but I may be asking for too much too soon.”
