Quotes

  • "Amanda Bynes and I have become close since filming Hairsray. It's so weird because I grew up watching her."
  • "From day one, I got addicted to being on stage and getting the applause and laughter."
  • "High School Musical has been a blessing and a gift."
  • "I don't like cocky people. This whole celebrity thing is kind of awkward for me. I feel like the kid that snuck into some party and shouldn't be there. Every morning I wake up and I'm like, "I don't know what I did differently."
  • "My mom asked me if I wanted to audition for musical theater because I was always singing and dancing around the house - they were pretty annoyed by this at the time. So, she asked if I wanted to go to Toys 'R Us or somewhere one day because I had wanted to get an action figure or something. Little did I know, it was actually a trick. She dropped me off at this audition for Gypsy. I ran around in a news cap and sold newspapers. I got the part... I didn't even get to go to Toys 'R Us after."
  • "A fan sent me a letter and a $10 bill. It's a short letter--all she said was, 'Hey, since it's harder for you to go out these days without getting photographed, here $10 for a pizza.' I was like, aww, she sent me money for a pizza so I could eat at home!"
