nickname
"My mom used to call me Shawny. That was the only nickname I ever had, and it's not original or funny."

"Caffeine. Coffee is my delivery system of choice, but I will definitely resort to Red Bull if I can't find coffee."

has lied about

dream role
"I've always played characters who were on the good side, so I want to try something a little darker."

"Drew Barrymore, when she did all those Guess jeans ads. One year I got a birthday card with all her picture in it. She was so cute and so hot."

"I've always wanted to move things with my mind, so I think telekinesis would be cool."
