Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1I really cherish the memories I have of my trips. For some reason, when you travel, it's like your mind picks up on the fact that this is something uncharacteristic, so it tunes in more acutely and remembers better.
2When you're the object of everyone's affection, make no mistake about it: you are an object. People don't have any interest in loving you for you. Their love for you is for who they think you are.
3Sometimes I'll let little things get to me. Or I'll make a big deal out of little things.
4Michelle Obama. She is big on encouraging kids to eat healthy - which is great.
5Meeting Johnny Depp was crazy.
6Once you become a celebrity, you are no longer a person, but an archetype.
7My favorite is Steamfresh broccoli with just a hint of garlic salt.
8Any charity that aids or supports trying to find a cure for cancer is very close to my heart. My mom had cancer multiple times, so it's something that I can relate to.
9Being a role model is cool and a great honor. I'm grateful to be considered one and will live up to that title by encouraging kids to eat their Wheaties and brush their teeth often.
10I have so many friends who just have big dreams, and they work their butts off every day to try to make these things happen, and so long as we keep that mindset and remember others, I think we'll be good.
11I just want to say thanks to everyone who has been a part of iCarly (2007), and that includes the fans. Thank you for sticking with us and staying loyal for six years of the show.
12I loved shooting iCarly: iGo to Japan (2008) because we got to be outside a lot, and our call times were really late because we had so many night scenes. It was pouring rain, so the cast would huddle together in between takes and drink hot chocolate. Shooting that episode was such a great bonding experience.
13I love figure skating, so I do that as often as I can. Other than that I just go to the gym or swim. I love swimming.
14I love going to the movie theatre, seeing live comedy, and going to amusement parks.
15I wanted to be in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), when I was six years old. I asked my mom for two years, and she told me I was crazy.
16I would write poems and think up melodies to them later.
17I've never had a roommate, even when I was growing up.
18For me, Sam & Cat (2013) is cool because it's got this buddy-comedy aspect that iCarly (2007) or Victorious (2010) didn't have.
19Both iCarly (2007) and Victorious (2010) fans are so hardcore and intense.
20Get a gym membership! If you have a membership, you're bound to go. If you say, like, 'Oh, I'll get it one day,' you're never going to do it.
21I get stressed out really easily.
22I never shared a room growing up because I was the only girl.
23The music that I've made in the past has had strong contemporary country roots, but I think moving on in music, I will branch out from that a bit.
24I personally have gone to photo shoots and see the pictures afterwards, and I don't look like me because I'm just so airbrushed and so, kind of, fake and almost plastic-looking, you know?
25I feel like no one starts entertainment with an impure intention, but somewhere along the way, lines become blurred and you're no longer sure which way is up and which way is down.
26I think a great way to get kids to start eating their vegetables is to get creative with them.
27I'm always thinking 'Don't mess this up.'
28A cute outfit can really make your day. If I wear something I look good in, my mood just goes way up.
29They say actions speak louder than words, but actions don't speak. People speak, and people are loud.
30Every girls' night needs a funny movie and a good conversation about guys! My friends and I also love picking outfits out for each other to try on at slumber parties. It's so fun.
31I think it's really important to stay active, even when you're very busy. I know it can get hectic and hard to find time, but make that time because you owe it to yourself.
32No matter who or what you support, I believe in supporting fairness first.
