I've been trying really hard to be more domesticated. It's not in my nature to clean and cook, and so I've been really good about it.
Most actors and actresses are consumed by careers and getting ahead.
Old school Janet Jackson is always good. I usually go old school, it's very rare that I pick a song from nowadays.
I love the creative process, of getting to create your own show or your own movie, whatever it is you want to do, and have the resources to try and make that happen.
I was very personable and outgoing and was friends with most everybody in my class but I was a diehard dancer so I was constantly at dance classes and working toward my passion of dance.
I'm from Texas and actually went to a regular high school, but every day after school I'd run to dance class and practice a lot and then go back the next day and stuff like that.
In high school I was always thinking, 'Should I be doing more? What else should I be doing?' Now I know it will all come to me. I just have to trust my path, so that's very different.
There's a reason women are pregnant for nine months; by the end, you're ready to have this baby.
I really didn't know how people were going to react to 'Magic Mike' because there hasn't been a movie like it.
I had danced with Janet Jackson and P. Diddy so I had done a bunch of hip hop. Really and truly my roots are in modern and ballet but, professionally, that's not really out there any more, unfortunately, so these artists aren't really having a lot of ballet dancers behind them so I had to learn hip hop really quick.
I always like Madonna; any Madonna song is good for me.
I really like to act, and I really like to perform. I enjoy producing as well.
I'm a huge karaoke fan. Oh my God. I'm one of those girls who don't give the mic away. It's a problem. I'm a closeted pop star.
I would say I was always very ambitious and goal-oriented, but rather than being just a go-getter hustler, now I surrender a lot more and I trust my path a lot more.
Every hotel room, every apartment we rent, I am sage-ing. And I have crystals that I travel with. It just makes me feel better.
Your surroundings may change but your essence and your personality pretty much stay the same.
Music videos are notoriously long, not fun, grueling. You are known there as a dancer and it's kind of sad because dancers, in a lot of ways, are under-appreciated and kind of under-respected when it come to that so they don't necessarily treat you in a nice way when you do a music video.
I thought my body was going to change so quickly with pregnancy that I'd freak out. But it was really gradual.
I'm open to whatever the universe wants to bring me.
I have such a girl-crush on Reese Witherspoon. I would love to do a comedy with her.
I definitely believe in ghosts.
I love to act. I want to be doing this forever, and I love to learn from people who I think are better.
I'm about 50/50 when it comes to technology. I can check my email and search for stuff, but if I hear we're on this and this and this site, then I need an exact link to get there otherwise I'm going to get lost.
