"I think the hardest thing was to go back to school. It's a pretty catty environment at an all-girls school and things happened. For example, 60 MINUTES came to do a story on me and followed me around for a day. At school, you just don't need that. And then I would have to go to New York or Sydney for a week and take time out. And, while they were amazing experiences, it was hard because I had these two completely separate lives. I think a lot of people resented that. It put me outside of them a bit."

"I don't think I'll ever be a movie star."
