In the interview, Amanda laughs when she's asked how she's managed to avoid becoming like other troubled starlets.

"It's shocking how it's become popular to go to rehab," she says. "It’s very odd. But I would guess I would say I’m very lucky. I have a great family, and I just have my eye on the prize, which, for me, is a long career. I don’t want to blow what I’ve worked so hard to achieve."

Amanda recently announced that she is over acting for good.

“The club scene and drinking doesn’t appeal to me,” she also swore when specifically questioned about Lindsay Lohan, who is around her age. “I’ve never even been offered drugs. Birds of a feather flock together, and I certainly don’t fly with that crowd.”
