"It's so funny, generally I usually went for opposites. You know, blonde hair blue-eyed and Johnny, when we first got together it was like, 'We look like brothers.' He has the same skin. The same skin tone, everything. I was like, 'This feels really narcissistic.' But I also realize the more I fall in love with him the more [I fall] in love with myself. I always grew up hearing 'Oh, your soul mate this and that.' And I didn't think it existed. I'm having second thoughts about that."
