COVER GIRL WINTER 2009
What do you like best about working on “Twilight”?
It has been amazing to be able to meet all of the awesome fans, working with all the incredible people in the cast and getting to meet amazing people in the industry (i.e. Catherine Hardwicke).
What is your most memorable experience on the set?
My first day on the set of “Twilight” was probably the most memorable experience. Just having lunch with Catherine and the whole cast figuring out the process and just getting initiated with everyone.
What is your favorite thing in your closet?
My Stella McCartney “Over the Knee” boots, which are the perfect fall accessory!
Who is your favorite designer?
Right now, Stella McCartney is probably my favorite designer, especially after seeing her Autumn 2009 line. I am also very impressed with the new vegan lines coming from Versace and Miu Miu.
What are your favorite shoes?
I love my Converse, they are always safe.
Who are your favorite bands?
Paramore, Mindless Self-indulgence, Heffron Drive, and of course the Spice Girls. 75
Who are your influences?
There are too many people in my life to name as influences or role models, that I couldn’t name just one. Everyone in my life is an incredible influence.
What got you interested in acting?
My Mom. She did extra work here and there and I eventually got the acting bug seeing her on set.
What do you do for fun?
The amount of time I have for fun is spent on taking the time to relax and play with my puppy. I also am going to have to have someone take away my credit card because my addiction to shopping is getting out of hand!
What can you tell “Runway” that the rest of the world doesn’t know?
I was born with two different color eyes, but they are the same color now.
What are your plans for the future?
To stay busy. I get bored very easily so I like to stay entertained. I am currently working on a jewelry line so I hope to get the up and going.
What is your favorite movie and why?
“The House of Yes”. First of all, I love Parker Posey. It’s a dark, yet funny movie. It is kind of indescribable, go rent it!
Where is your favorite spot on Earth?
I love Vancouver where we are filming the movies. The atmosphere in the city is so laid back and calm, and the city is absolutely beautiful. I also love being anywhere in Mexico (where my family is from) because it’s so humbling to be around family, especially when you are escaping the razzle dazzle of Hollywood. On a day-to-day basis my favorite place is my kitchen because that’s where all my amazing food is!
What time is your earliest call time?
I had a 4:00 AM call time once! It is like when your Mom tells you are going to Disneyland the next day and then you spend the whole night thinking and anticipating the following day, but you never actually get sleep.
Are you a day person or night person?
Night person. I do all my best thinking at night.
What is your advice to aspiring talent?
I don’t really need to give anyone advice because I think passion alone will guide them to where they want to go. Always listen to your instincts and trust yourself.
What charities do you work with?
PETA [She will be the new face of the “I’d Rather go Naked Than Wear Fur” Campaign] and I donate to any animal charity I can. I look forward to getting more involved with charity work in the future.
