Ashley Tisdale Quotes
"I've never been attracted to Zac,
and he's never been attracted to me - which is even more amazing! He always says I look hot, and I'm like, 'Aw, thanks Zac.' But really, it's more like siblings than a flirty relationship - he's seriously like my brother"

"I don't drink, and I don't
smoke. It's a personal preference. My mom has never drunk or smoked. I look up to my mom."

"Once in high school, I completely over plucked my left eyebrow all the way up to where you're not supposed to. I had no idea what I was doing and it looked terrible! My mom was like "What
did you do to yourself?" I was so embarrassed."
"In real life, I'm shy. I never played a mean girl before."
