SHARPAY EVANS

CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT ...
"My mom. She helps me with everything."

BIG SPLURGE
"I just bought a condo in L.A., and I'm moving in with my best friend. It's so scary, but I didn't go far. I'm just down the block from my family, so my mom still comes over and helps with my laundry."

FIRST CRUSH
"Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic. Now I like Jake Gyllenhaal. He's totally cute, but he seems so down to earth."

FAMOUS FAMILY
Her cousin Ron Popeil invented the Ronco Showtime Rotisserie and her grandpa pioneered TV infomercials in the 1940s. Older sister Jennifer is also an actress who appeared in the movie Dark Ride in 2006.

FAVORITE SNACK
"I love chocolate gummy bears. I bring them in my makeup bag!"

FAVORITE HOBBY
When not taping her other big role—on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody—she goes horseback riding. "I used to do competitions—bareback, western and English riding. I enjoy trail riding too."

BOYFRIEND?
"No. It's like everything's so busy with the tour and the movie and stuff."

SECRET TALENT
"I'm double-jointed, so I can do weird things with my fingers."

HER IDOL
"Jessica Simpson. I don't get starstruck by many people, but I want to meet her so badly. I love her fashion. I think I would pass out if I met her."

HOW SHE'S LIKE SHARPAY
"I'm totally into clothes. I always have to look the part!"

HOW SHE'S NOT LIKE SHARPAY
"I'm really quiet, actually. When I first meet people I can be shy. I think sometimes fans actually don't know if I'm nice or not, and I totally am."
