Touring is tough. You're almost in a haze because you don't really know where you are half the time: You're in a hotel room one moment, and the next thing you know, you're onstage performing for 60,000 people, then you're back on an airplane. It's very hectic and I couldn't do it without my family.
This is going to sound really funny. I have a poster of Zac Efron on my wall! I think every girl has a poster of him in their room so, why not join the club!
The sweetest thing a guy said is that I look pretty with or without makeup.
The second I met Zac, I thought he was a really cool guy. It's hard not to have chemistry with someone who is so attractive.
The Lion King always makes me cry, especially when Simba's father gets trampled.
So many people try to grow up too fast, and it's not fun! You should stay a kid as long as possible!
Right now, I do not like kids at all. I mean, I love my fans and everything, but when you have kids following you around all day, it's like, "Ugh, kids!" Maybe that will change when I get older.
My passion is doing movies, and as long as I keep doing that, I'll be happy. I want to do movies, fun roles and dramatic ones. I love all of it.
My first real kiss came when I was 10, and it was in an acting class. I had to do a scene from a movie where someone gets kissed under a tree, and I did not want to do it! But my acting partner wanted me to feel comfortable, so he bought a picnic basket with all these snacks. He made such an effort - and it was cute.
My advice to kids is give it your all! Give it 110% and don't give up!
Lipgloss is my calling!
If you have your eye set on somebody, don't beat around the bush.
If people don't like me for whatever I do, for being me, then that's too bad. I don't want to change to be something that I'm not for other people to like me.
I've had many nicknames over the years: V, Nessa, Nessy Poo, Nessy Bear and Van. Only my parents call me Van, though, and I hate it. I get embarrassed.
I've always wanted to play Maria in West Side Story. My idol is Natalie Wood, and I love the movie, so I think a modern-day twist on it would be really neat.
I've always had problems with guys!
I'm really an outdoorsy girl. People think I can't go anywhere without getting all primped up, but I love to go camping, and I'm totally fine with not doing my hair or makeup, not taking a shower and just hiking.
I'm not very experienced with boys or the whole dating thingy.
I'd like to win an Oscar.
I want to let my fans get to know a little about me. I'm very thankful for everything they've done for me so, of course, I'm going to let them into my world a bit. But I really am a very private person, and I love kepping my life to myself - that's how I've always been.
I think I'd make a pretty good girlfriend.
I may have had a crush on Zac, but we are like brother and sister, so nothing would ever happen.
I love funky styles. Not preppy or rock, just funky!
