Keep your private life private. Be open to suggestions from different people. And just be nice. I have heard stories about people who are just plain rude to the press or fans.
The food was interesting. My background is Russian, so cheese and potatoes are my love. There was plenty of that. And fried cheese! It is really, really, really good. And really, really, really bad for you. It’s like an artery on a plate.
The sexy moments for me, I wasn’t thinking of them as sexy. I was thinking of them as more specific to my character. So it was necessary for my character’s development in the movie, so that’s how I played it.
My mother was there every day of the production. You know what? My mother and I are so close, she really understands the fact that I am 18 and I am maturing. I guess I am not your average 18 year-old.
I wrapped “Buffy” and I always felt on “Buffy” that they wanted to keep me younger for a specific reason. It seemed like I was getting younger every year that I was on the show. I think there was a reference to me being 15, then 14.
I have ballet class every other day for two hours. And for “Six Feet Under”, last week there was a sequence where I had to do a whole choreographed dance number, so I had four hours of dance practice every day.
When you grow up on film, people sometimes have difficulties accepting the fact that you are growing up. They always imagine you younger.
I plays Joe’s best friend. I am the only one he has ever been able to trust in his life, so I help him understand what happened to him when he was younger.
I have many valentines. My mom and my sister and my directors. I got calls from all of them. And my friends. I respect what Valentine’s Day stands for because it is about love.
Ice skating is very difficult. It takes a lot of discipline and a lot of hard work. It’s fun, but you are there on the ice every morning freezing and trying to do these moves and these tricks.
I just feel – specifically about that holiday – why is it just one day that you have to tell the person that you love how much you love them? I think that is a little silly. I am much more the girl that likes the spontaneous.
