Vanessa: I love funky styles. Not preppy or rock, just funky! Vanessa: (on her mom) She gave up so much for me. She moved many times so I could follow my career. Vanessa: I've always had problems with guys!
Vanessa: My first real kiss came when I was 10, and it was in an acting class. I had to do a scene from a movie where someone gets kissed under a tree, and I did not want to do it!

Being cool is being your own self, not doing something that someone else is telling you to do.
Confidence is key. Sometimes, you need to look like you're confident even when you're not.
