jenna ushkowitz Quotes

You'll hear this - & more! - on Really Famous podcast.

“We were exposed—for a long time.”

“We clung close to each other.”


“I’m my own worst enemy. I get in my way every day.”


“I actually was slightly starstruck – by a 13-year-old boy.”


“It’s weird to go in a coffee shop and have people looking at you and want to talk to you and think they know who you are. They do, in a sense, but they don’t really know who you are.”
