Nikki Reed Talks Feeling Good

Nikki Reed spoke at the Create and Cultivate Event in Atlanta last weekend; here's what she had to say, as reprinted by E! News:

"The real question is what makes you feel good? Nobody in your position has ever been given a check for $5 million and suddenly they just feel good. You feel good from the start and those things are the icing on the cake or it just doesn't work. If you're chasing it the other way around, it will never work and that's why so many people in my business come out so fucked up.  They are chasing some sort of validation.

You know how many times I've been told you're not good enough, you're not pretty enough, you're too fat—that one I really like—you're too skinny—that one's also kinda crazy. The amount of times I've been categorized by somebody else's standards of a person is so ridiculous and I would be completely destroyed if I defined myself by that."

On her five year plan:
"In the next five years, I'd like to be able to look at all of you and say I've gone back to school and I have something to show for it. I'm a lifelong student. I'm always enrolling in classes wherever I am. When I was shooting in Baton Rouge for a long time, months and months, I enrolled at LSU and I took psychology and I've taken classes at SMC, UCLA extension. It's probably me chasing my father's dreams or following my brothers footsteps or something that I should talk to a therapist about."
