New interview: A Drink with Nikki Reed
A Drink with Chicago has a great new interview with our Rosalie, Nikki Reed! Check out a bit below!
After spending so much time filming “The Twilight Saga” films, do you ever find yourself channeling your character Rosalie in real life?The only time where that does happen is when we’re all sort of together in a group setting and when people start picking on Rosalie. I feel really defensive of her … I always wondered why people have always sort of talked about who’s friends with who and who has friction with who and then I realized it’s because that is what our characters are doing, you know what I mean? They don’t even know they are doing it but they assume it’s the same dynamic. It’s just kind of bizarre but it’s actually really fascinating.
You always hear stories of what it’s like as a ‘struggling actor’, so what’d you do with your first “Twilight” paycheck? Did you feel a little bit like, ‘I’ve made it!’?
I’ve always been a struggling actress and trust me I am fully aware that after “Twilight”, I’m so aware how fast this is going to go away. You know, I just don’t take any of it for granted. One small chunk of money isn’t going to last you a lifetime. I’ve tried to be smart with my money so the first thing I did was I invested in income property. Then, I did buy a home and I bought my mom a home. My dad was like, ‘At the end of the day, if you have nowhere to live because you’re super poor, if you have invested in some income property you might be okay.’ [Laughs] So that’s what I’ve done.
