During her appearance, Nina opened up on what it was like turning 30 in January, revealing that she prepped herself for her latest milestone so that it would be a little less scary for her.
“Since 28, I started saying 30 just to get my mind — just to prepare myself for the 30s so that it didn’t sounds as scary when it finally arrived, I had like a 2 year prep period,” Nina said.
“And so it wasn’t as bad,” Nina continued. “But then I also kept telling people that, and I think I was lying to them, just being like ‘Yeah, I’m fine I’ve been saying 30 for two years!’ but really I was dreading and dying inside a little bit.”
As for what it was actually like turning 30, Nina said:
“It’s weird, it’s scary. And yet it’s not because literally nothing changes. The next morning I remember somebody asked me ‘Does it feel like 30?’ and no, actually nothing feels different. It just sounds scary.”
During her appearance on the podcast, Nina also talked about celebrating her 21st birthday in Vegas with The Vampire Diaries cast, being on Degrassi, how she went from modeling to acting, and more.
