As she turns a year older, let us have a look at some of the famous quotes by the fascinating actress. Enjoy!

1. I want to win an Oscar. I want to be known for more than, like, going out. For being the ‘party girl’. I hate that. I bust my ass when I’m filming and when I have time off, yeah, I like to go out and dance.

2.  I’m learning how to deal with life in a different light than I have before and in a different way than I have before.

3. The biggest misconception is probably that I don’t have my head in the right place.

4. To other people, these are just a lot of clothes, but to me, these are things I’ve worked really hard for, and they actually happen to be really expensive.

5. I’ve never been a junkie, and never will be. I just like going out late to clubs with friends and listening to music. Always have done. It’s not that unusual for girls of 26.

6. I don’t care what anyone says. I know that I’m a damn good actress. … And I know that in my past I was young and irresponsible—but that’s what growing up is. You learn from your mistakes.

 7. My motto is: Live every day to the fullest – in moderation.
