On her struggle to break out of the Disney mold: "For a guy there's a way to rebel that can work for you. But for a woman, that can backfire. It's hard not to be a cliché, the child star gone wrong. I did respect my fans and what I had, but I was also figuring out what I was passionate about and how far I was willing to go."
On being a workaholic: "I'm a late bloomer. I grew up around adults, but in terms of getting out, having friends — at times I really didn't know anything but my job."
On her incredible relationship with her mother, Mandy Teefey: "My mum gave up her whole life for me. Where we're from, you don't really leave. So when I started gaining all this success, there was a guilt that came with it. I thought, 'Do I deserve this?'"
On how therapy has changed her life: "I wish more people would talk about therapy. We girls, we're taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who's down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart."
On her jaw-dropping social media presence: "As soon as I became the most followed person on Instagram, I sort of freaked out. It had become so consuming to me. It's what I woke up to and went to sleep to. I was an addict, and it felt like I was seeing things I didn't want to see, like it was putting things in my head that I didn't want to care about. I always end up feeling like sh*t when I look at Instagram. Which is why I'm kind of under the radar, ghosting it a bit."
