Name: Ashlie Garrett
Hometown: Los Angeles, California
Birthday: January 14
1. Ashlie says she's seen the movie Hot Rod an unhealthy number of times.
"I know every line by heart and I'm always quoting it during conversations. It's one of my all-time favorite movies!"
2. She can't stop watching Brad Mondo's YouTube.
"I think his personality is so fun and he is such a talented hairdresser. I always watch his reaction videos and I love using his hair care line of products, they work so good!
3. If a movie were made about her life, she would love for Charlize Theron to play her.
"I think we both are similar in ways and are able to take the traumatic things we've been through in life and channel them through our acting abilities."
4. Her favorite style trend at the moment is combining '70s-style bellbottoms and tiny crop tops.
"It's been making such a big comeback lately and I am head over heels for it."
5. She doesn't consider herself a big gamer, but there is one game she loves.
"When I have free time, my favorite game to play is the '80s joystick classic Qbert. It's so addicting!"
6. She thinks her zodiac sign is spot-on.
"Capricorns are known for being ambitious, organized and very self-sufficient. We are hardworking and known for being leaders and are very strong. On the downside, we do tend to feel more lonely and take on a lot of responsibility for other people's actions, which isn't fair to us. We're also extremely sensitive, but that also makes us very in-tune with our emotions and how we feel (whether we choose to express that to you or not). We are able to endure extremely tough situations and stand up for ourselves at any sign of disrespect. It's hard for most people to understand how we are able to be so kind-hearted and dependable even while going through our worst times, but it can be exhausting for us as well because we feel like we can't ever take a mental break. I love being a Capricorn, it definitely can be tough at times, but it's all part of the journey."
7. Her biggest pet peeve is when people are purposely mean or manipulative.
"It's so scary to see how cruel someone can be towards the most innocent-hearted, and especially the aftermath and effects it leaves on the person that was taken advantage of. It's really not hard to be a good person, but some people do anything in their power to hurt people and it literally keeps me up at night knowing pure people are being mentally abused by people that have nothing but bad intentions."
8. She's closer to her mom than anyone else.
"She has been there for me regardless of the situation, loves gossiping with me about all the drama of life and we always have the best time going out together. She truly is my best friend and I wouldn't be where I am today without her. I love her more than anything."
9. She's a big movie fan who adores all genres, depending on the type of mood she's in.
"My favorites would probably be comedies that are so stupid that you cry from laughing so hard, cheesy rom-coms and spooky movies even though I get scared super easily!"
10. Ashlie says her selflessness is the core value that makes her her.
"For me, being selfless means to think about others and how your actions will affect your surroundings. When you put thought into the well-being of others, it can really open your heart and give you a much deeper understanding of different people's journeys. When you are able to be aware of your impact, you're able to change your way of thinking and be able to affect the world in a beautiful and positive way."
