A different kind of interview

Recently reading a friend's Q&A meme, I realized it had been a while since I done one. Maybe that was a good thing? Well, instead of answering questions about my favorite color or food, I thought about answering questions that weren't written with me in mind. I thought it would be funny to take the questions from this interview and answer them. I don't mean to mock the person interviewed or the interviewer, I'm just reminded of a blogger friend who decided to read a book clearly written for teenage girls and he wrote a review of the book.

You dance, sing and act in High School Musical 3 - but which of the three do you prefer?

I tend to overact. At any time. Is that close enough? So I guess I'll say "act."

What music do you listen to at home?

I'm really excited about the Bruce Springsteen Tracks box set I recently picked up. Lots of great stuff I've never heard before, and it makes me want to check out more of Springsteen's seminal work. Other than that, I've been enjoying my regular diet of Dillinger Escape Plan, ABBA, Zao, and Red House Painters.

Do you like to party?

Yes. There are plenty of pictures to prove this on my Facebook and MySpace pages. But I'm not a fall-down-stupid-drunk party animal.

What’s the best thing about working in show business?

Probably all the free stuff you get. It makes you think you're rich and you have no problems.

Are there any downsides to being a successful actress?

Yes: they don't like it when you get old.

Are the paparazzi a pain?

Sure, but they're doing their job: being stalkers with cameras. Besides, people have got to know about your private life.

How tough is it in the spotlight?

Usually, it's very hot. When that light shines on you, you can sweat in no time.

Is it difficult to see false gossip written about you in the press?

No, because there's no gossip written about me in the press.

What advice would you give to people who want to follow in your footsteps and become famous?

If you're following me that close to my footsteps, I'd ask, "Hi, is there any reason why you're following so close to me?"

How would you describe yourself?

Charlie Brown when he's considering to kick the football or not.

How would your friends describe you?

Funny, insane, nice, reasonable, and intense.

You’re a dancer, a singer and an actress... Is there anything you’re not good at?

Car repair, reading philosophy books, understanding the apparent greatness of Heavenly Creatures, the list goes on and on.

Do you still enjoy meeting fans?

Absolutely: I like how fans cool me down when I'm hot.

Are fans the same around the world?

I think they spin counterclockwise in Australia.

Where would you most like to visit on your next trip abroad?
