On her engagement: "It wasn't a total surprise, but it was very spontaneous. It's going to be a pretty small destination wedding -- next November."
I think escapism is really important.
I feel like directing is an innate talent.
I just can't imagine dating a 20-year-old boy.
I went to an all-girls school and then I started working when I was fifteen, so I'm not very socially apt when it comes to dating.
You're at home, your parents are watching what you're doing, your friends are probably a little narrow-minded, or it's cliquey and kids are really mean to each other. So, as soon as you have that independence, you can just explore who you are.
"When I signed for As the World Turns (1956) [in 1996, a three-year stint beginning when she was 15], I had to promise my mom that it wouldn't hurt my grades and my dad that I would go to college. Acting kept me out of trouble. I had to go to CBS at 7 a.m., so I didn't have any time to fool around".
