"I was really into spooky things like ghosts and death. I have always had an awareness of mortality. It makes you live more fully if you are aware that you only have a finite amount of time."
Comedy’s my first love. I love that so much. You play comedy in drama, too. The difference between genres doesn’t really change the method of acting.
Flawless celebrities: When I was 14 -years-old, I made this PowerPoint presentation, and I invited my parents into my room and gave them popcorn. It was called ‘Project Hollywood 2004’ and it worked. I moved to L.A. in January of 2004.
"I think the number one thing that I find important is the importance of honesty with your friends and your parents, if you can be. But I think that telling people how you really feel, being who you truly are, being safe and taking care of yourself is the most important thing."
I was that ambitious when I was very young as well. Gwen is clear on what she wants to do with her life – in terms of her job and her sense of purpose. I think and hope that I am in the same ballpark there. Science-wise, though, she is much better than me.
I think I really love films and I love being able to go to a different project every couple months and to play another character and not be stuck in the same thing for years and years possibly on end. But there are some amazing shows I would have just died to be a part of.
"My parents always understood who I was and they made sure that I never wanted to lie to them. I could do anything as long as I did not lie. They wouldn’t punish me if I was honest, and that really worked in our home."
My mother started taking me to acting classes because she thought it would help me focus my energies. I was this really anxious kid in grad school. I had my first panic attack when I was eight years old. I don’t know why, but as a kid I worried about things like our house burning down, and I’d wring my hands all the time. So my parents took me to a therapist. While I was figuring things out, something happened where I just thought, okay, all right, I want to act.
"I don’t really get that involved in social media, and when I do Google stuff I end up feeling ‘uggg’ whenever I read something not great. You attach to the negative thing like ‘that’s true’ and the positive stuff is never true."

People have interpretations of what you’re supposed to be like. If you’re unattractive and overweight, you must have a great personality. If you’re attractive, then you must not be the nicest person. People are always taken aback that I’m easygoing but not necessarily stupid.

Arrogance would bother me, but I haven’t really come into contact with that too much. I guess it depends on the person because one person could do something and another person could do the same thing and it comes off a little bit different, right? There’s just something about them, their whole aura.
Y’know when you think ‘I can’t do something because this or this or this.’ You can actually do anything you want, like I could ballistic right now and tear this whole room apart, I could but i’m not going to because logic is stopping me but you can do whatever you want. You really can veer off any path at any time. Never give up!
