Zitat des Tages von Dylan Penn:
I'm dying to go to India.
I didn't want to go to college, and my parents said, 'Well, then you'd better get a job, because we're not paying for you to drop out of school.' So I delivered pizza near USC for a while. We had to wear khakis and a baseball hat with the logo on it, and I worked almost every day.
My name is Dylan simply because my parents did not know before I was born if I would be a boy or a girl, and Dylan was a name that worked in both cases.
I think my parents love that I want to do something a little different than what they do.
I will always eat pizza! Always.
I don't deny that I had a very privileged upbringing, but my parents and that town maintained a sense of normalcy that I think many people find hard to achieve, and I am so grateful for that.
When you're shy, the worst thing you can do is go into all these casting rooms and be scrutinized. But with shyness, I think you just have to bite the bullet.
No matter where I'm going, I always have sunglasses, a book, and some gum in my carry-on.
Getting to wear Chanel is my version of a fairy tale. Not that I would wear it every day - my style is more jeans and T-shirts - but it's kind of fun.
I'm not a big fan of working out. Living in Los Angeles makes it much easier for me; I don't ever have an excuse not to be outside.
My truest passion is writing, so I continue to do that on my own while seeing what all the buzz is about being in front of the camera.
I love telling stories; I always have, and I think women need to be more proactive about telling their own stories and sharing their points of view.
I had already been approached to do modeling, but in the beginning, I didn't want to hear of it. Then, after two months of delivering pizza, I changed my mind, and I presented myself at the agency.
Modeling is not a passion of mine. I have been having fun with it, but it's just to pay the bills.
I like doing the editorial stuff because it's nice to do something that's more me. But modeling for brands and the things to make money... I guess I don't really like being the mannequin. It's a very strange concept.
When I was 14, in Cuba, I met Fidel Castro with my dad, and it was really impressive. And on a totally different level, I met Justin Timberlake!
You're at a party or an event, and you're interacting with other people, but there's no shame in getting your camera out and getting your perfect angle. It's bizarre to me.
I live three blocks away from the beach, so every day I walk down to the beach to run or go swimming. Hiking is a big one for me - so long as it's something where I'm not thinking about working out, like in a contrived class or the gym.
I like to write, and I would love to be a screenwriter one day and a director.
Writing, directing... anything behind the camera is what I want to do.
