Quotes

"I look back on some of the stuff I wore and I'm so embarrassed. I definitely blame it on this clique of girls I was friends with back then. I've been talked into wearing stuff that I didn't want to wear. Now, I like very simple, elegant things, by 'Oscar de la Renta' or Armani."

"I'm in love with London. English boys are great. I completely fell in love with it over there."

"What's nice about acting is that you're not just left with yourself all the time, but you get to see the world through so many different people's eyes."
