- She had published a book of poems when she was just 8 years old.
- She had revealed in an interview that used to be lonely and depressed as a child, as a consequence of her parents’ busy lives. She had even mentioned that she only took up acting to earn her father’s respect.
- She had run away from home at the age of 14 due to her anxiety issues. This was about 2 years before she began her acting career. Later in life, she had suffered from agoraphobia.
