Some people think my father was a spy because of working for that government agency in Vietnam but he can’t find his car keys much less keep a national secret.
Like my dad I have a Christmas party most years. I like to celebrate and see as many people as possible.
I definitely wanted to be an actor. I didn’t want to be on TV I didn’t want to be famous I didn’t want to be anyone in particular I just wanted to do it. I see young people now who look at magazines or American Idol and their goal is to have that lifestyle – to have good handbags or go out with cute guys from shows or whatever. But I definitely wanted to be an actor.
I didn’t grow up identifying with beauty. I grew up thinking I could be smart and funny – those are the things I got feedback on.
Belly buttons are cool!
As I’ve gotten older I’ve gotten more liberal and my father is increasingly conservative. It’s so shocking to me because I always thought we had the same politics. The day I realized we voted for different presidents I practically fell out of my chair.
Nobody ever seems to want my advice about serious stuff. People will be like: ‘Who made that sweater?’ Or ‘How did you get your hair so straight?’ They don’t to come to me for the relationship advice or deep stuff. In fact my little sister actually hides from me.
While I very much wanted to be in a relationship I didn’t want to be in the wrong one.
