I view my career like a rubber-band ball in that every role is a new experience building toward something bigger.
The casting directors that were aware of The Real World looked at me as a joke. It was so hard to get away from that.
To be honest with you, I'm more of a girl's girl. I'm much more comfortable being around other girls.
I feel like always wanting more... that's how you grow and learn. You can't just be satisfied with where you are. There's so much more to learn and consume.
I didn't want to be known as the reality-show star trying to be an actress, so I kept a lot of the failed auditions to myself.
There are these creative shows, all on cable, that are just so daring and out there. That's the stuff I really want to be a part of, like with 'Sucker Punch' and 'Hangover 2.' Those movies didn't hold back. They really went for it.
