The 18-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about her boyfriend Gregg Sulkin and more. Check it:
On not having her driver’s license: “No, not yet. I don’t have my permit either. I have a fear of driving. My father died in motorcycle accident. I’m not mature enough to accept the responsibility of perhaps taking someone else’s life.”
On what she’s learned from past relationships: “An ex of mine and I knew each other’s phone passwords, and he was constantly going through my phone. I learned not to do that because anything can be misread. Gregg has my password, but he doesn’t go through my phone. The ex and I also had a ‘Don’t talk to the opposite sex’ rule, so if a guy I was working with wrote me, it would be a big problem.”
On having to live off food stamps: “I don’t think anybody really knew—it wasn’t a very obvious thing. I’ve never really talked about it. I wasn’t hiding it, and it wasn’t like, ‘Oh, I’m embarrassed because we don’t have money.’ It was, ‘Oh, we don’t have money, so we’re going to work that much harder.’ It was scary, though, because you really want those jobs. It’s a different hunger when you want your family to eat.”
