On not referring to herself as a “celebrity”:
“I don”t use [celebrity] to describe myself. In high school, a lot of my friends didn”t know I was an actor because I didn”t talk about it. They would come to school and be like, “Wait, were you on My name is Earl last night” It was something that I kept under wraps because I did it for myself and not for anybody else.”

On the struggles she experiences everyday:
“I struggle in real life trying to balance my natural connection to the earth and the somewhat materialistic side of the industry I am in… Anything over a certain amount of money freaks me out.”

On other job aspirations she has:
“If I didn”t have acting, I would be just as happy. I would probably be an herbalist, or maybe I would open a fruit stand on a Hawaiian island.”
