I want to be with someone who wants to work as much as I do and who respects me like I respect him.
I love pancakes, and I actually do love healthy stuff. Like, I love gluten-free or whole-wheat pancakes. Breakfast is my favorite meal.
I was always superthin, too skinny, actually. I felt like someone could break me in half. I realize now that being a bit more curvy and toned is so much more beautiful.
I'm actually most comfortable when I'm in a bikini, running around on the beach, like, no makeup. It's really free-feeling, whereas I'm always having to get dressed up and putting makeup on.
Now before I work out, I think, 'I love exercise,' and it works.
I'm in love with 'Bravo.' Me and my girlfriends love 'Bravo-ing,' which doesn't necessarily mean watching 'Bravo.' It's when you're a bum and you're on your couch watching reality shows.
My favorite subject was English or creative writing. We did poems and making a magazine, and I did one on celebrities. I called it 'Celebrity Life Magazine.' I interviewed my good friend Kaley Cuoco.
You can feel like, 'I look really bad', but to other people you can be really gorgeous.
I love Christmas, not just because of the presents but because of all the decorations and lights and the warmth of the season.
I always feel like I could look better. I'm, like, the worst.
I use Kerastase Oleo-Relax when I get out of the shower. It saves my hair. Actually, I've been doing this Brazilian treatment to my hair. It's a lifesaver; I don't even use a straightener anymore.
In high school, it was all about popularity, being with the boyfriend and all the girls thinking he's cute.
I'm not trying to run away from my fans at all. I want them to grow with me.
Once in high school, I completely over plucked my left eyebrow all the way up to where you're not supposed to. I had no idea what I was doing and it looked terrible! My mom was like 'What did you do to yourself?' I was so embarrassed.
Just because I live in L.A .and I live in Hollywood doesn't mean I have to have a Hollywood life.
Zac Efron is like a brother who's just goofy and crazy. He plays a lot of practical jokes.
There are so many emoticons these days, I'm kind of old fashioned.
My look is a very individual look. I love Pink, but I don't really dress like Pink.
All the time people ask me, like, 'Oh my God, what did you do to get ready for the red carpet?' And I'm like, 'I just had Thai food.' I love to work out and do cardio and have a healthy, active lifestyle, but I also am not going to, like, freak out over food.
I don't really read stuff on myself. I like to just kind of stay away... I don't get too involved in that.
I've had a normal life, but I have struggled to get here. It hasn't been handed to me and it hasn't been easy.
If I feel like someone's trying to bring me down, I just walk away from it.
I loved performing in the 'High School Musical' movies - that didn't seem like work - but the gym felt like torture!
I used to hate looking in the mirror. I've grown up into myself and now I'm happy with the way I look.
I feel like people expect a lot out of girls, like you're supposed to know who you are and what you want out of life right now. Some girls know. I did. But lots of people don't know. You have to try a lot of things and not worry about what people are thinking.
I just love carbs. And when I'm on vacation I definitely allow myself carbs, so it's always funny when people are like, 'Oh my gosh, you look great in your bikini.' I'm like, 'If you only knew what I had for breakfast!'
It's really hard when a celebrity dies out of nowhere, 'cause it's very shocking... surreal.
I realized just how much exercise and eating right make a difference in how you feel now and when you get older.
The 'believe' tattoo is because my mom always told me to believe.
When I was little, I saw the play 'Les Miserables' on Broadway, I thought it was the most amazing thing I have ever seen.
The family on my mom's side, their whole business is inventing and pitching stuff. My grandfather is in infomercials. He's a pitchman, so if you're ever watching TV late at night, you'll probably see him pitching knives. My great-grandfather also invented the plastic cheese grater.
I'm a strong person. I'm also very sassy and a little bit angsty sometimes.
