I would fly to Los Angeles just for a cheeseburger with pickles and extra tomatoes from In-N-Out.
I think less is more in terms of makeup in general.
I always messed around with makeup. From a very early age, my mom would let me play with hers, and my grandma, and my aunts and stuff were always like, 'Let me put lipstick on her!' that they'd have in their purse. But I think just from a very young age I've had fun with makeup.
Fashion is fun, and fashion is a form of art and self-expression.

My dad has totally taken my Cat Stevens T-shirt, but it's OK;

So, first, I wanted to be a part of the project because I thought it was an important story to tell.

Television's getting better because people are investing more money and time and respect into it.

Williamsburg's such a cool little neighborhood community spot.
