I was a teen idol and that has a short shelf life.
I think there are worse things for a teen to be enraptured with than ‘Twilight.’
I take mentoring very seriously and I am on the board of an organization called Girls Write Now where we match teen girls and writing mentors because it changes their lives.
I spent the first fourteen years of my life convinced that my looks were hideous. Adolescence is painful for everyone I know but mine was plain weird.
I remember as a teen being able to eat more than my father. I was growing so fast and my body couldn’t keep up.
I remember the first time I saw the ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ video. I will never forget that day. I just wanted to see Kurt Cobain’s face. I had a feeling he was very cute. But I couldn’t see his face. When I finally did see him he was even cuter than I imagined!
I played teen roles until high definition came out and I could never understand it. I would go in for adult roles and be older than many of the people auditioning but they’d cast the girl without a line on her face.
I liked being a teenager but I would not go back for all the tea in China.
I don’t want to just be in the normal kind of teen movie.
Being a teen idol is what I’ve waited for my whole life.
