The 29-year-old opens up about her childhood, revealing that, despite her Hollywood looks, she was "a nerd" in school.

“I was a nerd: president of the glee club, president of the yearbook staff. I even started a book club!" she told Maxim, adding that her family didn't own a TV.

"Growing up as a young girl on a farm in Minnesota, it’s just not something you have. I don’t even know if you could get cable there," she explained. "The other night I had a big dinner with friends and everyone talked about their favorite movie, and I just started to laugh because I haven’t even seen 'The Godfather' or any of the epic, classic movies that everyone is talking about.”
