"When you're attempting to grow up at an accelerated rate, in order to have some kind of acceptance among your peers, I think you're dancing as fast as you can sometimes," she added in an interview with The Times newspaper. "I feel like I've been on a big learning curve. I've messed up and I've arrived out the other end."

"And I'm lucky to have ended up with John and to realize that relationships don't have to be an endurance test. I feel personally fulfilled right now, and lucky enough to have in John someone who is truly comfortable in his own skin and truly knows who he is."
