On her favorite indulgence:
"I have a healthy balance [with food]. I watch what I eat sometimes but I definitely indulge. Yesterday for instance, I found out about this place that I had never been to called Oinkster in Eagle Rock. I saw it on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives because I was watching a marathon. I literally saw it on TV and they were slow-cooking the meat and I immediately got in the car with my best friend and we went. I had a pulled pork sandwich that was to die for. They have garlic aioli french fries with caramelized onions. It was heaven."
On finally appearing on the Latina cover:
"My fans had a petition to get me in this magazine for so long. I would get tweeted about it every day!"
On paying her dues:
"I think it’s important to be able to say that you did live a normal life and struggled to make ends meet. It all has to do with work ethic and how I apply myself to my awesome job now. I've always been used to working because I've been working since I was four."
Her dream role:
"I want to play Lena Horne because I've always been fascinated with her. Her talent was astounding and more than that, her life story is incredible."
On her shooting star tattoo:
"That one I don’t like. I joke about it and call it ‘The more you know star’ because it looks like that. I got it when I was 17; it's not that I regret it, but I look at it and say ‘Oh, Naya.’"
