#Quote
1Yes, I do strive to be someone young women can look up to.
2I'm always worried that lipstick is on my teeth or caked in the corners of my mouth.
3I don't like to do much with my hair - which is good, because I don't know how! I just always make sure I have a great haircut.
4When it comes to skin care, I like to keep things simple. I'm not the type of person who runs out to have facials.
5I'm always down to do a sitcom. I did 'That '80s Show' back in the day and that was a really great experience.
6I have exercise-induced asthma.
7It is important to find worth in yourself.
8At the risk of sounding too cliche, I found a really fantastic church. That is what keeps me grounded.
