Nikki Reed Covers 'Zooey' Magazine

Nikki Reed graces the cover of the November/December 2012 issue of Zooey magazine.

Here’s what the 24 year old actress had to share with the mag:

On writing the movie Thirteen:Thirteen was really hard on my family. I wrote this movie about them and their flaws and imperfections and what it was like growing up. It was from one kid’s perspective and not a well rounded one. You get older and it’s like, how dare I portray my father as being a totally vacant careless schmuck?”

On falling in love with her hubby Paul McDonald: “Actually my Dad was my date to the premiere where I met Paul. I got stuck in L.A. because my flight to Vancouver was cancelled, so Catherine Hardwicke invited me to the premiere of Red Riding Hood. It was 4pm, I had to find a dress, I was tired, hadn’t washed my hair and had to be there at 6. I wanted to support her so I went with unwashed hair. [laughs] All the guys ended up being there from American Idol and my Dad said, ‘Go say hi to that guy.’ I walked over to Paul and knew I was in love within one second of saying hi. It was the craziest thing that has ever happened to me in my life.”

On reuniting with her estranged dad: “We weren’t close growing up and I guess it was both of our faults. He was waiting for me to come around and I was bitter about him divorcing Mom. I was shooting a movie in Sacramento and I called my Dad and said, ‘We need to have a real talk.’ We went to Islands and I told him all these things that he had no idea I wanted. I said, ‘I want you to call me everyday and maybe five times a day and even if I say I’m fine I want you to say you don’t sound fine. I need you to dig deeper and tell me you love me every time you hang up the phone.’”

FYI: Nikki is wearing a green Darling sweater in the spread.
