Here’s what the 22-year-old Eye Candy alum had to share with the mag:
On staying true to herself: “I never felt like I had anything to prove; I was just looking for the right next step in my career. A lot has to do with how I was raised; my mom is really involved in my life. And when I was on Nickelodeon I was very aware I had a responsibility to represent the brand. There were a lot of young girls looking up to me.”
On what we can expect to see from her in the future: “I love comedy; I’m very goofy and spontaneous. I admire people like Kristen Wiig, who is hilarious but also does a lot of really cool films. I would love to have a career like hers. I also love Sandra Bullock; she’s so endearing, smart, and funny and not afraid to throw herself into whatever role she’s playing.”
On advice for young girls who want to be seen as mature: “Educate yourself: Read up on current events and books. I love to read books by women I look up to who are smart, funny, and interesting, like Tina Fey‘s ‘Bossypants’ and Mindy Kaling‘s ‘Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?’”
