When I was younger, I always did movies that teenagers would watch, not adults. I did 'Crazy/Beautiful' or comedies like 'Bring It On.'
Every movie I do, I always use things that have happened in my life. Funny moments, anything. If it just sticks out I'll write it down and use that, too, because it has to come out of you. But no one can work when they're depressed. I don't think I'd physically be able to do it if I were depressed.
Everyone goes through a hard time in their life.
I'm a good assistant. That's why I don't have an assistant, because I'm so on it that no one can be as on it as me. I know that.
