1 Smallville (2001) was my first love and it is always close to my heart.
2 I'm fairly introverted, but when I do stuff like a Maxim shoot, there's a side of me I call Gillian.
3 If you think too much about playing an icon, it will immobilize you. You have to treat it like a fresh character. Sure, there are guidelines so that you don't upset people, but you have to find your own way.
4 Nudity is just about your body. It's easier to shut yourself off outside than reveal your inner thoughts.
5 I'm learning to embrace who I am and what I look like.
