Nikki Reed Wants to Connect With Her Sensitive Side Again
Here’s what the 26-year-old actress shared with the mag:
On her debut role in 2003 film Thirteen: “It was a feeding frenzy, and I wasn’t ready. I couldn’t understand what was happening. I didn’t have any media training—I didn’t have anybody but myself. I was a very sensitive kid who then had to condition myself to desensitize. Now I feel like my journey is to try to do the opposite, and find that connection with my own sensitivity again.”
On her song “Fly With Me”: “There was something so beautiful and honest about what Paul [McDonald] and I created, but there’s no denying that it had a very different feel from this. It’s just as real and as raw, but I connected with this music in a totally different way. It’s a new chapter for me.”
On social media: “It’s taken me a while to figure out who I feel comfortable being on social media, because for the longest time, it was just a place to promote, promote, promote. I wanted to talk about what I felt excited to talk about and maybe that didn’t have anything to do with projects. It’s been a journey to figure out what kind of contribution I want to make, and what kind of person I want to be on this planet.”
