"I totally fought for Channing to get cast in that movie because he wasn't famous yet. He'd just done a Mountain Dew commercial," she revealed.

The 32-year-old said "And I was like, 'This guy's a star — every girl will love him!' But the producers were like, 'He's so much older than all of you!' And I was like, 'It doesn't matter! Trust me!'"

The Hairspray star also confessed about how she sunk into a "deep depression" after shooting She's The Man. "When the movie came out and I saw it, I went into a deep depression for 4-6 months because I didn't like how I looked when I was a boy." As fans remember, the movie was about a teenage girl dressing up and posing as her twin brother to play soccer at a private school.

"I've never told anyone that," the What I Like About You actress said. Seeing herself dressed up as a dude was "a super strange and out-of-body experience" for her. "It just really put me into a funk," she divulged.
