Home was difficult. I was resentful toward my dad. I was a really angry kid. Ballet gave me this huge outlet, in retrospect, to get my emotions out. Once it stopped, I was totally lost.
On going from modeling to acting:
But this whole other life opened for me in Paris. I met actors; I watched films. When I was growing up, the movie theater was 20 miles from my house. I spent every day watching The Nanny. After a few years in Paris I realized I wanted to go to drama school.
On having an identity crisis:
I had become arrogant. I had been a model, I spoke three languages, I had a career. I felt I had figured it all out. And then I realized that I was living this very privileged life in my own bubble that I created and I don't know anything about what's really going on in the world and I don't ask enough questions.
