I am always working out, whether I am on vacation or at home. When in La Jolla, I like to surf, play tennis, and golf - but surfing is definitely my favorite.




I don't really have time to watch too much, but I like 'Family Guy' and 'Entourage.' I'm also obsessed with the YouTube series 'Balls of Steel.' It's hilarious.




I'm releasing a single. It's called 'Live it Up.' It was based on my Euro trip. I only write my own music. I don't let other people write it at all. So I've been working on that a lot. There's three singles coming out. The producer of The Fray who did their double-platinum album 'How to Save a Life,' I'm working with him. He's producing me.




Acting is what I love. I love being the chameleon, and you can't do that if you have just one physical type.




I actually write my own music whenever I have a chance. I play guitar and sing.




My parents know how passionate I've always been about acting. I convinced them this was something that I was going to put my heart and soul into.




My suitcase must absolutely contain my iPod.




Ever since I've been a little kid I've always wanted superpowers, which is the coolest thing in the world.




Everyone in Hollywood wanted a role in this movie. Everyone wanted to have a part in it. I feel so lucky that I got one, but what I find so cool about 'Hunger Games' is that the real star is the story itself.




I think it would be really awesome to be a rock star.




I like movies that instill passion in the viewer. I like movies that can teach us about who we are as people.




It's so much easier just to eat and work out than not eat and work out like crazy.




My heart lies in music and acting, however, my inspiration comes from adrenaline rush I get from sports... and life.




When I was doing a movie called 'The Seeker,' I was fortunate enough to be able to do a lot of my own stunts.




I definitely want to study film. I'd like to have my own studio one day and just make a lot of movies.




Modern reality TV sets up these competitive situations to show us real human nature.




My ideal travel companions are my surfboard, wetsuit, and guitar.




I think the universe is just so big that there has to be something else out there.




When I first started acting I was about nine years old. I had never been to audition in my life and my agent sent me out. It was just a commercial for 'Harry Potter.' That was the first thing I ever went out for and I got the 'Harry Potter' commercial which was really cool, but I didn't play Harry Potter.




My favorite travel pastime is writing music, either with my guitar or on my computer.




Jessica Alba. I have the biggest crush on her, I can't even tell you. I met her in Vancouver when she was filming 'Good Luck Chuck.'




We did a 'Vanity Fair' spread for 'The Hunger Games,' and we were on set, and I saw a little head pop up from the tree. There were three teenage girls who snuck past security and made it into the forest.
