# Quote
1 I am taking belly dancing now. My hips are double-jointed, so I can do it really easily.
2 Don’t get me wrong, I’m going to play the young role as long as I can because once that ship has sailed, there’s no getting back on it.
3 I don’t want to get stuck playing the same character over and over again.
4 I love taking on roles that I haven’t yet done in my career.
5 I’ve been through a marriage, and I’m still very fond of my ex-husband; but if I’ve learned anything, it’s that relationships are about compromise.
6 I’d like to go to NYU business school and then go on to film school.
7 When a casting agent sees me, he kind of knows what he’s getting.
8 I’m already a tiny person, so now I’m trying to go to the gym to add muscle. I need it!
9 Growing up on a set is completely different than coming onto a brand new set for the first time.
10 I really wanted to pursue music, but all those other girls are doing it and it is annoying.
11 When you’re younger, there aren’t very many kid actors. It’s a lot easier to get jobs.
12 I really don’t get nervous when I perform -it’s more of an exciting feeling than anything else. But put me in a classroom with kids my age and have me take a test and yeah, I’ll be nervous!
13 My mom sent me to regular high school because she wanted me to have that experience and not say that I missed out, but I didn’t like it at all. I’m more comfortable in the world that I’m in, I grew up in it so when I get around normal kids in regular high school I don’t know what to do. I feel more secure in an adult environment.
14 You always hear these stories of people who grew up in Hollywood, and they’re like, ‘We lost our childhood.’ But I was very fortunate.
15 I get to play characters that kind of shock people and I enjoy doing that. I like characters that have meaning and get people in the heart. I want to be able to get people to cry or make people angry or sad.
16 What makes Johnny Depp so brilliant is you truly have no idea what kind of character he’s going to play next.
17 My mom always bails me out of things when I get in trouble.
18 I like to play paintball in my back yard.
19 I have three friendships that have lasted a long time, but everybody else has come and gone.
20 Natalie Portman is one of my favorites, and Jodie Foster. Those two are amazing actresses.
21 I really look up to actors like Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett who have a strong background in theatre.
22 I love doing comedy. It’s a lot of fun.
23 I hang out with all the crew on set. It just makes it easier to work. You feel more comfortable around everyone.
24 I love working with Darren Lynn Bousman. He is such a cool director with really great ideas.
25 Coming into high school, it’s scary. You don’t know which group to be in, and I can’t stand that it’s so cliquey.
26 I just feel so sexy when I’m salsa dancing and wearing the salsa clothes. I love dancing, and the salsa is just so sexy.
27 There will always be someone being picked on at school, and it’s not going to go away.
28 Honestly, I usually have way more guy friends than girlfriends.
29 Kids need to open up to their parents. And parents should realize that when kids are pushing you away, that’s the time to really step in.
30 Never compromise yourself.
31 I always think it’s hard for any young actor to make that transition to more grown-up roles. Because you don’t want to alienate your audience who has been supportive of you for so many years, so you kind of have to tiptoe through that process.
32 People are expecting me to still be fourteen years old. It cracks me up, especially when people see me walk by with my husband. They’re like, ‘What? You’re married? You’re not old enough to be married.’ Thank you. I’m glad that you think that.
33 The Internet has become a tool to pick on people and ruin someone’s life. I don’t think parents realize what’s going on. Just because you’re not at school doesn’t mean kids aren’t harassing you on the computer.
34 I used to be so intimidated by spin classes. I’d always go by and see people on their bikes looking so intense. But one day my sister and I worked up the courage to go in, and now we’re hooked!
35 I don’t know how I didn’t kill any one of my sisters. For this one horror film we were making, I made my own harness for my sister. I wrapped her in all these ropes, but then also put a noose around her neck and hung her from a tree. Now I think, ‘What if my harness didn’t work?’ I’m so lucky that nothing ever happened.
36 If a script comes together, and you end up liking the people who are part of it, that’s when you can make magic happen. It’s a huge combination of trying to find something you think you can deliver on and a director you think you can collaborate with to make a good picture.
37 I don’t expect people who’ve enjoyed ‘Spy Kids’ will enjoy ‘Repo! the Genetic Opera!’
38 I guess if you are making more money than your mom and dad, you can set your own boundaries.
39 I consider my mom and all my sisters my friends.
40 I was raised by a very strict, good mother, so I won’t be getting out of line anytime soon.
41 Having to go back and forth between school and filming would sometimes be frustrating because I loved school. It was my chance to be around other people my age. But when you’re leaving school to go to a set that’s filled with kids your age, then it’s fine.
42 The Internet has become a tool to pick on people and ruin someone’s life. I don’t think parents realize what’s going on.
43 When you have people catering to you non-stop, you lose it. You need someone to kick you in the butt every now and then!
44 I think it really makes a difference when you know the people that you’re working with, when you develop a relationship.
45 I need a SUV, for me and my four sisters. So, I’ve narrowed it down to four, kind of expensive, cars.
46 I actually have a stash of wigs for Halloween. But only for that. Not to play dress-up.
47 Well, because I’m naturally a tomboy, when I have sleepovers with girls, they end up going home and crying.
48 Guys are so easygoing and girls are a little harder to please, but that’s okay.
49 I think I am too old to be doing teen movies. I am just kind of annoyed, because you have all these teen movies coming out with usually either Lindsay Lohan or Hilary Duff doing four of the exact teen movies over and over again.
50 I don’t know what to say when I have a crush on somebody. I kind of lose my words. I really try to start a conversation, and I can’t. It’s horrible.
