Bethany Joy Lenz Quotes
Bethany: (about filming One Tree Hill) Like summer camp, only it's really cold in Wilmington, North Carolina. I've never lived in a small town, but I always pictured myself in a small house, drinking lemonade on my porch swing. Now I have the porch.
Bethany: I am not a people person. It's not that I am shy, but I am more comfortable in an atmosphere of one-on-one. I hate crowds and parties.
Bethany: Music's something I'll be doing for the rest of my life, whether I'm just playing guitar in my living room or whether I'm playing for 3,000 people.
Bethany: I think I started to see that acting was a really great catharsis for me. I've always been really creative and artistic, but I think acting was something that I could pour my creative energy into, and it took all of me. To this day, I haven't found that feeling anywhere else.
Bethany: (about her character on One Tree Hill) The interesting thing about Haley is that she feels really awful, but at the same time she doesn't walk around groveling. That would be pathetic. She wants to be forgiven, but she is willing to earn that. I hope the Nathan and Haley fans hang in there because I think they will be very satisfied with the outcome.
Bethany: Music is something that is in you. You can touch people with your music even if you're working a job at starbucks or working a desk job.
Bethany: I wrote my first song when I was maybe like four years old. I was always wandering around the house making things up. Back then, I learned a lot about singing from listening to Mariah Carey. I would sing to her [albums] and try and get all her riffs and stuff. I would be in my room for hours until I could get it right, it helps being an only child because I didn't have anything else to do.
Bethany: I'm not a morning person. But I'm not really much of a night person, either. I'm just kind of there.
Bethany: I eat peanut butter, Swiss cheese and lettuce sandwiches. Really, they're very good.
