The actress admits she had a host of normal jobs when she was a child and used her movie knowledge to her advantage after failing as a waitress, reports

"I've been acting since I was 11-months old but I have had normal jobs too. I worked at a coffee house and I was terrible. And I mean, really terrible. My boss just hated me. I could see the resentment in his eyes every day. I was 14," she said.

The 35-year-old actress loved her time there because she was able to talk about her industry all day long.

"I also worked at a Music Plus store. I rocked at that job because I love movies and so anyone would come in and have just a vague idea of anything and I was like 'I got it! I'm on it!' I loved that job," she said.
