Everyone has that inner voice, the one that's a Negative Nancy. I'd say to ignore that voice and to be confident and follow your heart.
I don't have to be a 'gazillionaire;' what's important to me is to just being able to work.
I actually studied in college, for the three semesters that I stayed in school, I don't recommend that, but I studied theater, and in high school I was involved in the drama department.
I feel like I'll always be a brunette, that's just who I am, but I love that I can switch it up and be whatever I want to be.
I get the celebrity game now – you can go from being hot to fighting to be seen.
I think we all depend on a significant other, and we think if they leave me, I'll die. But that's not true. We're all much stronger than we think we are.
I've long wanted to find a charitable cause to really get involved with and be passionate about. I get invited to a lot of charity events to sing, and I am happy to help and bring a source of entertainment, but I'm sort of disconnected from them.
One thing I learned about people is that they love to give their opinions about things.
I have family members who live in Africa. Because of the family that lives there, I know what is happening in these countries, and it seems so silly to me that diseases like malaria are so prevalent when they are entirely preventable. Yet children are still dying every 35 seconds.
I am just the person who didn't want to settle for not having everything I dreamed of.
I still have to count on my hands! I'll be in a restaurant doing a tip and I'll be like, 'What's 20% of this?'
My fondest memories are generally the day after Thanksgiving. I get the total decorating Christmas itch.
Your traditions change from when you are child to when you become an adult.
Even if I weren't in Hollywood, I would feel pressure to look a certain way.
I can understand why guys wouldn't be into 'Glee.' You know, that's a pretty heavy musical show. That show does, like, six songs in an episode.
America is a country with so much opportunity. I'm living the blessings of what this country offers.
The reason I haven't had kids yet is because I was so focused on my acting career, hoping I could get something to break.
