Here’s what the 42-year-old Annie actress had to share with the mag:
On having a good relationship: “You have to find someone in the same place as you are. Timing is everything. If you get into a relationship where you want something the guy doesn’t want, it’s never gonna work. You’re never going to get him to be in that place. No matter how old you are, finding the guy who’s in the same place as you are and wants to show up is the only way a relationship works, period.” (Cameron wouldn’t confirm or deny rumors that she is engaged to her current boyfriend Benji Madden during the interview.)
On learning from past relationships: “Here’s the thing. You make the same mistake over and over again until you learn your lesson. We girls sometimes do the thing where we pick the same person over and over again – they look and seem different, but deep down, they’re the same. And that’s on us.”
On having to sing in her role as Miss Hannigan in Annie: “It was the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done in a movie. I cried a lot. [Miss Hannigan is] bitter because her chance at fame was stolen, and all she can taste is that taste, which is very much in line with this day and age. People determine your value by how many friends you have on Facebook or if you’re Instagram famous.”
