“When I was a teenager I felt like we were always being stereotyped as being really intense and dramatic and passionate and hopelessly romantic and excitable, and now in retrospect I think I need to let you know that I think all of those things are amazing. I hope you never lose those things.”
“Because I feel normal I expect to be treated normally and I’m trying to be being patient with the fact that that’s not exactly how everybody else feels. When I’m at the dentist getting my teeth cleaned people are standing looking through the door. And I’m like, ‘What would you do if someone was staring at you while you were getting your teeth cleaned?’ So it’s a work in progress. When I meet young fans I understand them because I was like that too, but it’s the real life day-to-day run-ins with people who sometimes don’t really know how to act that make me feel weird, and I don’t like it”
Hopefully my fan base doesn’t lock me into ‘Twilight,’ you lose yourself. You should do things for you, and I have been really lucky to have things that really rock me and really move me falling into my lap.
