I don't like parties. I prefer something more intimate, just for the closest people.
I feel grateful because I have a lot of love in my life. I found the person I'm sharing my life with. I have a good man.
I never really thought about being an actress or being anything like that. I was always a bit scared as well because of the thing about models becoming an actress and all that.
I think it's better when you're natural, when you just do whatever you want, instead of doing classes where I see all these other people holding back because they've been trained with certain skills or techniques. I'm like, whatever.
