Nicole Anderson ABS. On JONAS role: ‘It was my first stable job so it was, ‘Wow, this is awesome, I’m gonna be able to do what I really love to do on a regular basis.’ And then I booked it with my best friend and the Jonas Brothers. It was a win-win-win all over the place. When we came back for the second season,
I found out Nick and I would be love interests on the show so I was, like, ‘That’s not a shabby job’ (laughs). He’s a really, really cool guy.‘ On mature roles: ‘I’m not going crazy and wanting to take my clothes off on HBO or anything like that (laughs). I wouldn’t want to do anything that I will be embarrassed to have my dad see (laughs).’ On Demi Lovato’s breakdown:
‘I think with Demi, she is a young girl, she’s a teenager. Every teenager goes through their angst phase, you know, where they wanna rebel, kinda go through teenage hormone issues. Unfortunately for her she has to do it in the spotlight.’
Her mom Anami is a native of a small town in Negros Occidental, Philippines. She joked about what her mother would do to her if she got out of control: ‘Oh, definitely it’s my Filipino mom. (laughs) She’ll chase me around with a wooden stick. (laughs) No.’ She loves Filipino food: ‘My favorite’s halo-halo and I love sinigang and pancit. My mom makes me these vegetarian egg rolls. I also have a tattoo on my ribcage and one of the things on it says ‘Mahal kita.’’ (I love you).
