Nikki Reed may not be the most experienced girl out in the world, and she’s first to admit that. But that doesn’t mean the 22-year-old actress doesn’t have some type of advice.
Catching up with gURL.com, Nikki opened up about her own childhood, her friendship with DJ Qualls and fitting in. Check it:
On her friendship with DJ Qualls: “DJ and I have been best friends for I don’t even know how long now… since I was a kid! He was actually approached with the script [for The Last Day of Summer] before I was and they asked who he thought should play Stefanie and he said me.”
On growing up responsible: “I definitely went through a rough patch, but I wasn’t nearly as destructive as the character that I played in Thirteen. I think for me, growing up fast and living on my own, which is certainly not something for everybody, forced me to grow up and be responsible. I didn’t have the opportunity to go out and party like a lot of the young girls in Hollywood that all lived at home with Mommy and Daddy.”
Her advice for girls who don’t fit in: “I think it’s important for people to experience. I don’t like when advice is given and it just feels so unrealistic, like, ‘Oh, just stay true to yourself and don’t ever join the cool crowd.’ So just experiment and experience everything, but to a limit. Mildly. See things and do things but don’t lose yourself and don’t forget yourself in the process because it’s really so minor in the grand scheme of things.”
