I had a hard time with bullying. I ate lunch in the bathroom.
I definitely listened to country music. I don't think I listened to hair bands as much as I did Bruce Springsteen and U2 and Aerosmith.
I think every girl needs to love herself, regardless of anything. Like if you're having a bad day, if you don't like your hair, if you don't have the best family situation, whatever, you have to love yourself and you can't do anything until you love yourself first.
A lot of people don't know this, but when 'Dancing with the Stars' first asked me to be on the show, I said no, because I wanted to act and to be taken seriously.
I think if you alienate people and just focus on your work then it just becomes lonely and it's not fun anymore.
I think it's important to be happy before you can make anybody else happy.
It's very cool to be able to say that my first real film was 'Footloose' and my second film I got to star alongside Tom Cruise and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
There is something so rewarding about dancing. It's almost spiritual - you let loose, you feel free, you get endorphins from the exercise.
There was a time when my mum would sew costumes for the dance studio so we could keep doing our classes because we couldn't afford them.
Adrenaline is the reason I do what I do.
I'd get invited to parties, and instead it would be these abandoned houses.
