Growing up, did you ever want to be a Disney child?
No, I wanted to be Judy Garland! I watched adult things at a very young age. I watched Chinatown when I was 9. Patrick Swayze was my biggest crush. He still is. And David Bowie in Labyrinth. They opened my eyes to sexuality. Wow! They both looked amazing in extremely tight pants.
