As a kid, Punky Brewster was my idol. I wanted to dress like her and talk like her.
London has such an unbelievable respect for theater, where L.A. does not. You go to a play here, and the dude next to you is sleeping. In London, if you’re not in your seat when it starts, they lock the door. In Los Angeles, you can stroll into school late with a cup of coffee. In London, you get your butt to class on time.
Except for Carrie Bradshaw’s in the opening credits of ‘Sex and the City,’ I don’t know if the tutu has ever really been trendy, but I want to wear one. I want to dance around in it, and I want that to be socially acceptable.

We film ‘Resurrection’ in Atlanta, where humidity is a force to be reckoned with, especially for those of us who have naturally curly hair. I would love for the au naturel look of the ’60s to come back. No make up, no hair products – just sun-kissed skin, freckles, and crazy curls.
