Inside the Gossip Girl shared:
On her family life growing up:“My family has a crazy history. Probably the craziest I\’ve heard of&.I look back now and I see it in a nice light. It wasn\’t uncomplicated. But I played outside. I went to the beach. There were happy, fun times.”Â “You can take what is handed to you and use it as an excuse to mess up. But I’ve always handled what was given to me by life. I consider myself lucky. I was never lied to. And I was loved.”Working as ‘kid’ in Hollywood: “I worked a lot, even though I was just a kid. It seemed normal to me,” she shrugs. “I couldn\’t relate to kid stuff. â€˜Jimmy doesn\’t like me!\’ Who cares? I was worried we didn\’t have gas money or food. Those were my concerns.”
