“I had just graduated high school and I was working part time at Coldstone Creamery, and doing an internship and getting ready to go to college. I didn’t tell any of my friends that I had auditioned for Hairspray, because if it didn’t happen I didn’t want to explain to everybody. When it happened, I was like, ‘Oh no, I have to tell everybody!’ So I got the news the night before my senior prom. I went to my senior prom the next day, and I said, ‘Hey, guys I tried out for the new Hairspray movie, and I got it.’"
