Small Fortune

“I use a Chinese satin jewelry roll as a wallet. I got it in Chinatown in L.A. It’s so tiny I need to fold my bills in thirds to fit.”

Write of Passage

“When I was 16, the creator of Blossom gave me a Montblanc pen and said, ‘Don’t treat this pen special. Throw it in your bag and it’ll last forever.’ I always use it.”

Mind the Gap

“Yes, I still wear a retainer — just not when filming.”
