When I'm doing movies, she's always with me.
We spend days being bored in an apartment together waiting for someone to call and say I'm needed for a shot. Because we're together so much, we have to get along. We have to find ways to get to know each other. We've gone through a lot of stuff, you know, and I think we're pretty close. It's kind of weird, like I'm the incredible changing girl, which is good because I can relate to adults and to people my age. If I hadn't gone into acting, I would have been one of those weird runaways on Hollywood Boulevard.
No, it'd be uglier. I'd probably be dead. I can't even act that well when the camera's not on. I get really embarrassed. I don't have any training, and I don't believe in training. Of course, people who don't have any training always say that. They found a gimmick that sells. The fact that they're making money off all these teenage kids who actually believe in their message is disgusting.
For years, I hated myself. I covered the mirrors in my house. I literally couldn't have a mirror in my room. I still can't sit in a restaurant or someplace where I can catch my reflection. I get so paranoid. I certainly hope I'm not still answering child-star questions by the time I reach menopause. I'm not perfect-looking and I don't say the right things, I'm a little different, nothing really special, but I guess I come across as a little more real to people and that comes through on the screen.
I know I look young, but with the right make-up I can look older. I definitely feel older. My dream role would probably be a psycho killer, because the whole thing I love about movies is that you get to do things you could never do in real life, and that would be my way of vicariously experiencing being a psycho killer.
Also, it's incredibly romantic. I like playing people who are so afraid and ashamed of who they are and so disgusted by everyone around them that they decide to become the ultimate extreme of what they're afraid they are. I don't think I'll be reformed until I'm well into my fifties. You have to excuse me because I AM a teenager, so I'm allowed to sound illiterate and make stupid comments like 'I'm not into hard-core feminism'.
I think the main reason a lot of child stars don't make it is that it's hard to see someone as cute and then all of a sudden see them as having more depth. I guess I was just lucky that, when I was little, nobody thought I was that cute. In front of 20 people on the set, with someone who was 27, who you met for the first time when you were nine. It was a little weird. He would be a hot date, and that is what I need right now.
I have met him, so I know what I am talking about here. He's a nice, home-loving boy with a great body and great eyes. And when he reads this, he's probably going to run a mile. There are two sides of me. One is the professional side. When I'm working, I'm not a kid - and can't be. Otherwise no one would take me seriously.
When I'm not working, I think I'm a normal year-old. It's really okay to be who you are. My first kiss was with the most chivalrous little boy I ever met in my life. It was in kindergarten. There was this kid who was really a jerk, and he wouldn't let me get on the school bus. He was about to hit me when this little boy named Nicky shoved me down, stood up and took the blow.
So Nicky instantly became the kindergarten stud. The day he got hit for me, I lined up all the little girls, and everyone kissed him. That was my way of thanking him. I'm not very skinny. The point of mainstream movies is to cast someone that everyones' going to love. Because of my persona, I'm controversial.
I don't do anything in my real life to deserve that. I don't drink, I don't do drugs. But studio people don't want to put me in their movies. They think I might offend. I never did drugs - they made me feel awful physically. Of course, I experimented, but soon I thought, 'This is not worth the shame spiral the next day'. I'm the kind of person who, if I went to a slumber party and smoked a cigarette, I assumed my parents were going to die as punishment.
So I'd have to call my mom, tell her I'd smoked and feel really bad. Things were all about appearances. We were supposed to be socialites when we grew up. She's not like that now, but my mother used to say things like, 'When you're older, you can go on a scotch-and-steak- diet'. My dad was also very image-conscious. All my other relationships have been three months.
I used to always cheat on my boyfriends. Just to create a little drama.
