She quipped, "It's been a long time since I was a teenager -- like two years -- so it's been a while," before adding, "When I was a teenager I felt like we were always being stereotyped as being very intense and dramatic and passionate and hopelessly romantic. Now, in retrospect, I need to let you know that I think all of those things are amazing things."
