 I have my permit to drive but I am only just starting out driving. I’m really nervous about it. I can drive along the flats now but not busy roads or the freeway. I have a long way to go before I’m brave enough for that.

 My mom went to college on a full scholarship for tennis, my dad played minor-league baseball and my grandfather was a quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. So before I started acting the plan for me was to be a tennis player – that was the plan for me and my mum had me in tennis classes.

 One day I went to her and told her I really love the outfits but it’s just too hot – it’s just too hot for me to play tennis and I didn’t want to play anymore. I did play soccer and my team was called the Spice Girls, I was Baby Spice. I was playing in a game one day and I got the ball for the first time and I was so excited and I was running and running. There was nobody around me, I was thinking this is an easy game, then I kicked it into the goal and was so excited. I turned around and nobody was cheering for me and nobody was proud of me — and I then realized I’d kicked it in the wrong goal — so I quit soccer too. I was traumatized!

 I was taking the ACT. It could be really good or really bad, we’ll see. [I] did some guessing. I didn’t know one question on the science section. [Option] D sounds good! So I don’t know, that was not good for me.

 It’s coming up, It’s on everybody’s minds… I’m not sure yet if I’ll be going. I don’t have a date. I’m trying to decide if I wanna go with someone or just go with friends. Sometimes it’s easier to just go with friends.

 That's another reason we were so excited to do The Runaways together. I couldn't ask for a better person to stand by my side while I did a more grown up role.
