Something I love about 'Teen Wolf' is that my character

Leif Garrett
I love being a teen because you don’t have all the responsibilities of an adult yet.

Carrie Hope Fletcher
Children born to teens have less supportive and stimulating environments, poorer health, lower cognitive development, and worse educational outcomes. Children of teen mothers are at increased risk of being in foster care and becoming teen parents themselves, thereby repeating the cycle.
Jane Fonda
I was considered chubby as a teen.
Roger Moore
I grew up watching ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and used to dream that I would grow up to be just like her. In a way, ‘Teen Wolf’ has a lot of those kinds of characters. We’re just kids by day, and yet we’re trying to fight demons and werewolves and bad people and save people that we love.
Arden Cho
I started a MySpace teen lit discussion group and invited people to join.
Sarah Mlynowski
People love teen movies because everyone can relate.

As a teenager I was so insecure. I was the type of guy that never fitted in because he never dared to choose. I was convinced I had absolutely no talent at all. For nothing. And that thought took away all my ambition too.
Johnny Depp
I actually hope people don’t react to ‘Impossible’ in a way where they think it’s terribly retro. The plot needed to do what it needed to do. But I’m a little surprised to find myself looking a little bit like an advocate of teen marriage. It takes some exceptional circumstances for that to be a reasonable idea.
Nancy Werlin
I take mentoring very seriously and I am on the board of an organization called Girls Write Now, where we match teen girls and writing mentors because it changes their lives.

Teen movies often have an unspoken underlying premise in which high school is seen as less serious than the adult world. But when your head is encased in that microcosm it’s the most serious time of your life.
Rian Johnson
I’m not a teen anymore, but growing up, some of my favorite things were, like, ‘Twin Peaks,’ which wasn’t even really my time, and this is one of the things, like a weird, quirky, small town mystery.
Troian Bellisario
One of the things that defines YA is a really strong narrative. Adults love YA because, at the end of the day, they’re good stories and page-turners. The other element is emotion. The teen years are a very emotional and intense time, and I think it’s a time we that we can all relate to and remember.
Rebecca Serle
‘Pretty Little Liars,’ you know, it’s a teen show that grew to be something bigger. I think you had girls from ages 7 to, like, 20 watching the show, and that was the predominant audience. Then it grew to be for girls, boys, men, women, people who are 7 to 35. I think that’s crazy.
Aeriel Miranda
I was a handful growing up.
Olivia Wilde
To be honest, and this is terrible to admit, I hardly read any teen mystery books at all.

Danica McKellar
Yes, my pageant career was incredibly short. I started at 19 and was done at 21. I started by competing for Miss California Teen, which I wound up winning, and I literally just entered the contest on a whim!
Meagan Tandy

Beth Ditto
This may just be me, but I feel like everyone’s dream is to live as an American high school student. There are so many teen films set in America that you live vicariously through them, anyway.
Katherine Langford

That is, in middle age I moved to a seaside town and got into a right barney with the local powers-that-be.
Julie Burchill
Fifth grade was when I first heard 'Smells Like Teen Sp

Fifth grade was when I first heard ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit;’ it was the energy, and his voice. I liked 311 and Sublime, too, though that might have been a little after that.
Ty Dolla Sign
The first time I got pregnant, I was a young girl – I was 17 years old. Although I knew right away that I wanted to keep my child, being a pregnant teen was an extremely scary experience for me. Luckily, my family and friends were very supportive and were there for me every step of the way.
Paula Garces
Once a teen has been identified as part of the ‘target market,’ he knows he’s done for. The object of the game is to confound the marketers, and keep one’s own, authentic culture from showing up at the shopping mall as a prepackaged corporate product.
Douglas Rushkoff
‘Teen Spirit’ is a celebration of the power that music can deliver to the cinematic experience.
Max Minghella
Clothes are like a suit of armour when you’re young. I was quite a shy teen, so I wanted to make aggressive statements with the way I looked. I’d say my goth/indie stage was the worst: there was a lot of experimentation involving pink food dye in my fringe.
Erin O’Connor
I found my niche as a character actor, and I’ve never felt like a movie star or teen idol and never wanted to.
Vincent D’Onofrio
Youth comes but once in a lifetime.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I feel really honored to be part of The #seetherealme campaign. It’s really amazing, as it helps many teen girls who are struggling. It helps them to find themselves and be true to who they are.
Jazz Jennings
I did work at a mall in college – I think retail/customer service is just one of the most hideous jobs in the world. So I always try to be extra nice when I go into a store. But malls are part of our culture, if you watched any teen comedy in the ’80s. it’s clear that malls are where we live!
Jayma Mays
I see it as more of a teenage activity than, you know, she’s only 11, but you know, I think it’s great that she knows so many girls who want to play music. And I see it more as a teen activity than I do as going into music.
Kim Gordon
I was a teen idol and that has a short shelf life.
Shaun Cassidy

Barry Gibb
Teen boys are a huge mess.

I love telling teen stories where the characters are experiencing things for the first time – the stakes feel really high.
Stephanie Savage

Amanda Bynes
N.E.R.D. was also from – not too far from where I was from growing up. For a lot of people who make music, that was a huge influence in teen years.

I’m excited to see a new age of rom-coms, and especially teen romantic comedies, because when I was younger, I was watching ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Hunger Games’ and stuff like that. I loved those movies, but they are a little bit heavy. We didn’t really get to have the lighthearted love stories.
Shannon Purser
