Posted on

What's the wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?

On my phone, it’s my friend Jona Cerwinske’s artwork, and on my computer it’s my dogs.

When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?

A drink! Depending on my mood, my drinks are vodka on the rocks or reposado on the rocks.

What is the last thing you searched for on Google?

The SELF/LESS trailer.

Who is the last person that called or texted you?

My boyfriend.

What's the one word you are guilty of using too often?

“Bro” – it’s a very Miami thing. I say “thank you” a lot. It’s probably one of my favorite phrases.

What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?

I don’t normally get awkward or embarrassed, but I was in a meeting and we were talking about this upcoming movie which will be pretty graphic, and the director talked about how graphic Game of Thrones is. Now I’m a big fan of the show, so I say this and that happened, and he was like, “Great! I haven’t seen it.” I went into defensive mode; it’s not my fault if you bring it up and then are not up to speed on the show.

When is the last time you went to a theater?

Not too long ago. I just saw Tomorrowland, to support my friend Britt Robertson.

What TV show should everyone be watching?

Kingdom on DirecTV.

And what is your TV guilty pleasure?

OMG. I actually just started watching Sopranos for the first time. I can’t stop watching! In terms of guilty pleasure, though, I’m a big Food Network fan.

What's the first CD you bought?

First CD I received as a gift was a bass mix; I’m from Miami. The first one I bought myself with my money, was Total’s single - “Kissing You.”

What music are you currently listening to?

I’m kind of all over the place. I’ve been listening to this band called Decorator. I really listen to everything from Indian music to salsa music.

What movie makes you laugh the most?

I like dry humor and comedies where realistic things happen. I’m really excited about checking out this one film called What We Do in the Shadows.

What's your favorite day of the year?

Every day, but mostly Halloween though.

What was your first online screen name?


What is the one food you cannot resist?

Korean BBQ, ice cream, pizza, truffle fries….

What's your favorite emoji?

I’ve been using Bitmoji a lot but for emojis, I always use the monkey one because everyone calls me “monkey.”


Pick one: Kittens or puppies?


New York or Los Angeles?


Comedy or drama?


Bacon or Nutella?

Nutella on bacon.

Beyonce or Rihanna?

I feel like it’s not fair for me to choose between both of my Queens. I think if you put the two of them in a room, I would not know what to do with myself.

Hannah Montana or Lizzie McGuire?

Hannah Montana - strictly because of that song.

Coffee or tea?


'80s or '90s?


Britney or Christina?




And finally: tell us a secret.

I have piercings *insert wink emoji here*

SELF/LESS hits theaters nationwide tomorrow, July 10th.
