    "So I've been with a guy for a while now and we are super happy and super in love and everything is great. However, the other day I was sorting through my voicemail and I found a blocked messages section and in it, I had loads of messages from my ex (during our relationship I found out he had a wife and kids and I was heartbroken) and now I find myself listening to his messages a lot and thinking, What if? I love my bf so much and definitely don't want anything with my ex, but I just feel like he has a hold on me. Should I talk to my bf about it or hope it goes away?"

    After saying she felt it was the first time she felt like a quote “beautiful woman” and that it meant a lot that it was because of another woman, Kirsten said: "It was very empowering for me at that age in terms of the way I felt about myself and my beauty... just gave me a lot of confidence that I carried throughout my career in terms of producers wanting to fix my teeth. People just trying to change and manipulate young actresses in a way to make them the same. She made me feel beautiful for who I was. That was a very pivotal time in my life to feel that way and to be given that."
