Prior to the release of her all-encompassing book, Mind Body Pride, the former Camp Rock actress chatted with Insider and told the news channel that:
‘I felt stuck. I felt miserable. I felt like everything was so wrong with me, even though in my heart all I wanted was to be a truly devoted follower of God. To hear from people you trust, from the people you respect, from the people you’d like to become, that you’re essentially ‘rotten’, ‘horrible’, the devil has this target on your back because of your position in Hollywood… it sends you on a spiral because I just wanted to do the right thing.”
As you may know, the actress came out as pansexual in 2018 and now she told Insider that it was such a scary experience that she still has nightmares about it!

“My mind doesn’t even want to go there. I know how dangerous it is for me as someone who had access to therapy and many other forms of support. Yet I still considered whether my life was worth living. What good was it even to me to be around and see myself just as someone who has only harmed other people and society.”
The star said that even when someone manages to “come out on the other side” and confidently declare that they are living a wonderful, happy life afterward, the “scars” and “shadows” remain.
That said, she concluded, “So yeah, I’m not yet in a position to go back and give details, which is an indication of how difficult that chapter was for me.”
