When it comes to Nikki Reed and her comparisons to the other Twilight stars, Nikki may not get near as much exposure but that does not mean the 22-year-old is speechless when she does get some coverage.
gURL recently caught up with the young actress and discovered more about her childhood, her friendship with DJ Qualls and the difficulty of fitting in at school.
“I definitely went through a rough patch, but I wasn’t nearly as destructive as the character that I played in Thirteen,” Nikki said. ”I think for me, growing up fast and living on my own, which is certainly not something for everybody, forced me to grow up and be responsible. I didn’t have the opportunity to go out and party like a lot of the young girls in Hollywood that all lived at home with Mommy and Daddy.”
“I think it’s important for people to experience,” she continued. ”I don’t like when advice is given and it just feels so unrealistic, like, ‘Oh, just stay true to yourself and don’t ever join the cool crowd.’ So just experiment and experience everything, but to a limit. Mildly. See things and do things but don’t lose yourself and don’t forget yourself in the process because it’s really so minor in the grand scheme of things.”
