Personal Quotes (7)

To be honest with you, I'm more of a girl's girl. I'm much more comfortable being around other girls.
The casting directors that were aware of 'The Real World' looked at me as a joke. It was so hard to get away from that.
I view my career like a rubber-band ball in that every role is a new experience building toward something bigger.
I love photography, I love food, and I love traveling, and to put those three things together would just be the ultimate dream.
I didn't want to be known as the reality-show star trying to be an actress, so I kept a lot of the failed auditions to myself.
There are these creative shows, all on cable, that are just so daring and out there. That's the stuff I really want to be a part of, like with 'Sucker Punch' and 'Hangover 2.' Those movies didn't hold back. They really went for it.
If acting doesn't work out, I plan to do food photography and just eat my way through the entire world. I'm a big foodie, and if I could make some career out of it, that would be fantastic.
