“I don’t feel old enough to have kids,” she said of starting a family with her hockey player husband. “I know I am mature. But being responsible for another human?”
The “Idol” winner, 30, also talked about her “independent” personality and handling fame.
“I’m not a mushy person at all. We were never a huggy family. Or a ‘let’s talk it out’ family. Technically I have siblings but they are quite a bit older than me — I was the accident — so I have the only-child syndrome going on,” she explained. “I’m a little more selfish, a little more independent, a little closed. I do wish I were softer. I wish I were able to form relationships better. But hey, I mean…I’m not a sociopath.”READ MORE: Amy Smart On 'DC's Stargirl': 'It's Pure Entertainment'
Of fame, she said, “At the beginning of my career, I used to have panic attacks. People were touching me, screaming — it made me really nervous. In public, I just get nervous. It’s a physical reaction, feeling like the walls are closing in. The fans are great. It’s not their fault. I don’t ever want to come across as ungrateful. But on my end, it is hard for me to process. Because I am still just me.”
She also revealed what she wrote in her high school yearbook: “You were supposed to say what you would be doing in 10 years, and I said, ‘I will be rich, famous, and married to a hot guy.’ I guess I should have added a few more things.”
