Check out a few tidbits from the actress' new interview with Seventeen magazine:
On the evolution of Alice: "In 'Twilight' and 'New Moon,' Alice acts so human it's easy to forget she's a vampire. By 'Eclipse,' she begins to show a darker side because -- regardless of her demeanor -- she's still an animal and she'll do absolutely anything to protect her family."
On what she would have liked to know a few years ago: "I wish that in high school I would have realized sooner that it's not worth all the time and effort to hate someone or think about how you're going to hurt someone's feelings."

On last summer's nude photos scandal: "My privacy was invaded and it was a hard thing for me to go through. There are all these girls that look up to me, so hopefully they will take that and look at it and learn from me that things can get into the wrong people's hands and they can use them to hurt you."
On why girls heart Team Edward: "Girls always want what they can't have and what's dark and mysterious."
On her dating philosophy: "If something is bothering you with a guy, it's better to say something and hurt at the moment then to stay in something and let someone treat you less than you should be treated."

On her favorite souvenir from the set: "I like to keep the first original script, the one I've destroyed, written all over and put notes on. It reminds me of where I was at the beginning of the film and where I was at the end."
