Personal Quote:

{asked if life is like Gossip Girl (2007)] I think life is like high school. I don't necessarily know that it pertains to "Gossip Girl" because that is obviously an extreme fabrication of the most glorious life. But I do think that life, in general, is definitely like high school and you never get out of it. You just have to stay strong. See more »
