1Big doe eyes
1[on her parents' criminal past] It made me realize that you can't judge anyone-especially your parents-for what they've done in their past, because people change.
2If you're just yourself, you'll never lose. I want to be myself. That's when you feel the most comfortable, that's when you have the most success, and that's when you're the most happy.
3I think the most wonderful thing about her [Audrey Hepburn] is that she set a lot of trends and they were all about being modern yet having your own kind of look because you can be stylish and trendy all you want but, at the end of the day, it's about what you feel amazing in.
4I don't want to have a friend unless I can call them one of my best friends.
5I love New York. You're never alone, but you're always on your own.
6I really came to realize -- and it's the best advice that will come out of the end of this show -- that high school is not the end, it is not the best, it is not the only. You will have a whole life afterward, if you're lucky. If you're unlucky, then the only thing you'll ever feel is how fun it is at your prom.
7I was picked on because I was a four-eyes and a dork. We didn't have a ton of money so I couldn't say, "Mom, I need to have these crazy expensive jeans." I had long tangled hair and wore hemp necklaces, baggy T-shirts and not-so-cute jeans. I mean, for crying out loud, we were just going to throw on gym clothes and run around the track! I've grown up as far as the fashion world goes, but I still identify with the high school me.
8My mom lived through a lot before I was born, and I can't judge her on that. She and my dad are good people. Look, I could've turned out a lot worse.
9I want to do so many things -- and maybe someday a lot of it will be impossible, but right now I don't see the impossible.
10I don't want to do drugs. I don't want to have to start over a million times. I want to have an abundance of good things in my life, and I want it to spread out evenly - I don't want it to come and go.
1Gave birth to her 1st child at age 29, a daughter named Arlo Day Brody on August 4, 2015. Child's father is her husband, Adam Brody.
2On October 28, 2014, she released her first album, "Heartstrings".
3(February 15, 2014) Married her boyfriend of 2 years Adam Brody following a 3-month-long engagement.
4Has a dog named Trudy.
5Her best friend is actress Emmy Rossum.
6Ranked as having one of the most beautiful famous faces by "The Annual Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Famous Faces From Around the World." She was ranked #4 in 2010, #14 in 2009, and #21 in 2008.
7Was in a relationship with her former Gossip Girl (2007) co-star Sebastian Stan from 2008-2010.
8Moved to Los Angeles, California, at 14. She attended Hollywood High School and Beverly Hills High School. She then transferred to a small private school and graduated a year early.
9Her mother served a federal prison sentence for her involvement in a drug ring that smuggled marijuana from Jamaica to the United States. She was able to give birth to Leighton in a hospital and nursed her for three months in a halfway house, before returning to prison to complete her sentence. At this time Leighton's grandmother cared for her.
