If you could have one wish instantly granted, what would that be for?
To heal my mother. She has kidney failure and osteoporosis. It’s very sad.
If you only had 24 hours to live, what would you do? Would you do the bad stuff, you never got a chance to do, or would you do good stuff to make sure you make it into heaven?
I would do the good stuff. I want eternal life with my father.
What is your earliest childhood memory?
I remember being very young and going to AA meetings with my father in Brooklyn. I thought it was fun because they served hot chocolate and cookies.
Is there something that you promised to do if you became famous, that you still haven’t done yet?
No, but I promised to buy my mother a house when I became rich.
What’s the difference between who you are at home as opposed to the person you pretend to be on the red carpet?
I feel like I am pretty much the same, minus the extra hair and makeup. I may turn the energy up a bit, but I’m a silly person naturally and I love to laugh and have fun, so I tend to carry that same energy onto the carpet.
If you could meet any historical figure, who would it be?
With so many classic films being redone, is there a remake you’d like to star in?
Yes — Pretty Woman. I love Julia Roberts and that red dress. I actually had someone duplicate it for my high school prom. [LOL]
