  • When I was 14 or 15, I was a really good volleyball player, so I thought, 'Well, maybe I'll just get a scholarship to an Ivy League school through volleyball.' Then I quit when I decided to focus on theater.
  • If you don't like something, talk about something else that's great and maybe someone else will discover it and think it's great too.
  • I get way too much happiness from good food.
  • The tabloids create their own stories about people's lives that don't exist.
  • I've always had a complex about being taken seriously.
  • I would love to date a chef. I'd probably get really fat, but I don't care.
  • I really actually enjoy auditioning.
  • I never wanted anyone to think that I would use my family name to get me anywhere.
  • It's interesting to watch myself with an audience; I'm trying hard to learn from it.
  • I'm the curvy one of the family.
  • I'm terrified of improv. Improv in a show or in front of an audience sounds terrifying.
  • I think a lot of films do themselves a disfavor by putting in way too much information, and everyone knows what's gonna happen next, and no one can actually discover things as they go.
  • What keeps you confident in a healthy way is knowing that everyone else around you is going to support you and teach you and you're going to learn from them. I just feel open to learning from people.
  • I was embarrassed that I even wanted to become an actress because coming from L.A., with two older sisters in the business and a mom who had been a ballet dancer, it was such a cliche.
