“I’ve seen other girls my age out who are in this business—I won’t mention names—smoking pot right next to me. I don’t have any desire to do drugs.

"None of us do drugs. I've never even smoked a cigarette. Never smoked pot ... But we've been around heavy drugs, and it always trips me out. The first time I saw someone do cocaine, I was staring with my mouth open, like, 'Oh, my God! Dude's doing cocaine! I've only seen this in movies.'"
"I was very lost and very lonely in high school ... I didn't drink because I disagreed with it at that point in my life. People didn't understand that, and they made fun of me for it. They were always putting a beer can up to my lips and being like, 'Come on, you know you want to.' And I was like, 'No, I really don't. That's not what I want my life to be about right now."

"We don't have to get stupid and drunk—we can have fun without drinking. You're not supposed to drink in clubs till you're 21, so we have Red Bulls ... I don't want to have a drink and have someone whip out a camera phone and Disney getting it. It's not worth it! I don't want to risk my career for a night of having fun."

"I'm 55 years old, and I didn't get off scot-free. I have to take medication for the rest of my life because I've done so much neurological damage to my body."
