“I like to think of myself as a real model, not a role model. I don’t like to think of myself as playing a role. I just try to keep real to myself. I think that by being the best myself, I can help people be the best themselves.”

“When parents or young people come up to me, the first thing they say is not, ‘Oh, I love that show you did.’ It’s, ‘Hey, thank you for saying this,’ or ‘My daughter really needed to see that.’ That stuff is much more of a compliment.”
“We should stop living by the definitions that other people give us and live our own. That’s what fashion has allowed me to do. The only opinion that should matter when you look in the mirror is your own.”
