What was the situation when you were a teenager?
"It was brutal. It was hard. All my friends had like blonde hair, blue eyes, very fair-skinned. And you know, I just completely wanted to be like them. I felt like an outcast. […] but you know it’s.. we don’t all have to look the same here but I felt like I did so I would completely, you know, bleach-blonde my hair and I got colored contacts and I look back at these photos and I’m like What was I doing? Why would I do that? And you know, I say to all the girls, when you’re watching the show even and we have these morning scenes.. we have makeup on still when we wake up in the morning on the show. So.. no one wakes up like that..”
