“In high school I was a nerd and very academic. On the weekends, instead of going out and partying, I’d close myself in my room and read Shakespeare. I hid from boys. I didn’t know what a boyfriend was, although I think I wanted one.”
“I remember when I first wanted to act my parents were supportive, but it was that they were like please, if you can find something else in the world, don’t do this. So it wasn’t even they’re like 'Oh we’ve been waiting for you to arrive, welcome to the family business' kind of thing.”
“Even when I was young I wanted to be an actress. I knew the actors and the paparazzi. It was just kind of always in my landscape. It was never directed at me, but it was always somewhere so I could see how it operated and I could see it from afar and go 'Wow, that's not really glamorous, it's kind of exhausting not having any privacy.' So it was never something I pursued. The first time I saw the billboard for Pretty Little Liars I almost got into a car accident!”
