I think for me to find that project is going to be something that I'm going to have to develop for myself.
I know for me like I have a reputation of being kind of tough, I have a reputation of also being the girl next door, kind of sweet but I have standards and my thing is, it's me on that screen and I don't have control over everything in this and I'm grateful and thankful.
I think there are a lot of other movies actors that are just talented, it's just about this opportunity - it's just about when are we going to be put in those positions where we can shine.
We haven't even gotten a start date but we'll see what happens with that and that will be fun. I've gotten a couple of other things but I'm not really committing myself to anything yet.
I don’t feel less loved or less loving because I’m not married.
As long as the acting is good, I can appreciate it.
Directing music videos is all about capturing images.
