Self Advice

If you could give your "teen self" advice, what would it be?

Kelli Caldwell: "Don't worry so much about what the other kids are thinking. They are most likely not thinking about you at all!"

Hugh Jackman: "Love life? (spoiler alert) You will meet an incredible woman, and the choice to marry her will be the easiest choice of your life."

Alice Cooper: "Trashy girls are excitin' for about 5 minutes. Keep your eye out for a really good lookin' church girl. Then you'll have the best of both worlds."

Ricki Lake: "Talking is good … so speak up, and continue to be heard. Someday soon, the world is going to be listening!"
