The 17-year-old actress opened up to the mag about falling in love, showing her devotion and saying farewell to Hannah Montana. Check it:
On going to church for herself: “I donâ€™t necessarily define my faith by going to church every Sunday. Because now when I go to church, I feel like itâ€™s a show. There are always cameras outside. I am very spiritual in my own way. Let me make it clear, thoughâ€”I am a Christian. Jesus is who saved me. Heâ€™s what keeps me full and whole. But everyone is entitled to what they believe and what keeps them full. Hopefully, I can influence people and help them follow the same path I am on, but it is not my job to tell people what they are doing wrong.”
On finding love with Liam Hemsworth: “Nick [Jonas] and I were so young. We really did have a genuine love, but it wasnâ€™t like this. We met when I was 12. I didnâ€™t know who I was. I know who I am now and am so content and full of purpose. He [Justin Gaston] was a good person, so carefree. All I know is that I am so happy right now. I wasnâ€™t last summer after I called it off with Justin and went away to film The Last Song. I cried all the way there. The last thing I was expecting to do was to fall in love. I went there thinking the summer was about me and getting focused on my career. But I guess God was like, ‘Girl, here is this amazing guy.’”
On her television guilty pleasure: “I am screwed up in the mind a little bit because Iâ€™m not like other 16- or 17-year-old girls. I have no perspective of who exactly my fans are, to tell you the truth. Teenage girls in general are hard for me. Iâ€™m not a girlâ€™s girl. And I donâ€™t really watch television at all. But there is one show Iâ€™m addicted to: RuPaulâ€™s Drag Race. I love me some RuPaul. I love RuPaulâ€™s motto. It goes something like, â€˜A real lady is never bitchy, a real lady is sassy.’”
On saying farewell to Hannah: “What I am sure about is Iâ€™m going to rejoice and be happy to finally not have to beâ€¦well, to not be somebody Iâ€™m not exactly. As Iâ€™ve grown into it, Iâ€™ve grown out of it. Does that make sense? When I was 12, I thought, ‘I want to be famous all the time! I want everybody to recognize me!’ When theyâ€™re putting me in sparkles and in pink this final season, I have to grit my teeth. I canâ€™t breathe looking like that anymore. A friend came by the set one day and said, ‘You donâ€™t look very happy.’ I said, â€˜Iâ€™m feeling claustrophobic in all these frills.’”
