The 20-year-old actress dished to the mag about biting her tongue, getting her mom, Gina fired and how she really fell in love with acting. Check it:
On getting her mom, Gina, fired from one job: “I got her fired once. I was calling her at work way too much, because I missed her. Back then, I was so shy, I did not want to leave her side. I would call her at work nonstop, to the point where she got fired. It was horrible.”
On how she dealt with life after her nude picture surfaced: “Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m extremely guarded. I really do try to watch everything I say. Because one little tiny slip, and itâ€™s like the world is coming to an end! It is hard. I do always have a wall up. But I feel by doing it, I keep myself safe. I try to live my life, do what I want, and just let everything else follow along. I try not to read the blogs or what people say about me. Because thatâ€™s what brings everybody downâ€”no matter what you do, youâ€™re always going to have haters.”
On how she caught the acting bug: “My parents had Grease lying around, and I watched that and fell in love with it. It was interesting to see people moving stories along with songsâ€”it was exciting and different. West Side Story was one of my favorites. [High School Musical] was the best thing that could and possibly will ever happen to me. I got to make lifelong friends. I had the most incredible time of my life.”
