Dear people who repeatedly tell me to “clean” my brows, I am going to keep this short and simple: No. Sincerely, me

6. She's a fantastic singer.

With her pedigree (see item no. 1 on this list), it's only natural that she'd have a captivating voice.

7. Her hobbies are playing the guitar and piano.

She also enjoys playing volleyball. But these days, she usually just takes it easy or works out on her days off — life in the spotlight is tiring, after all. "I just curl up under my sheets, eat, and sleep!" she told Star Style in a May 2018 interview.

8. She's an introvert.

She says that being an introverted celebrity often rubs people the wrong way — they sometimes misinterpret her actions and think she's a snob. "I know that since I’m in this business I have to get used to socializing but it’s still a big effort for me because it makes me nervous," she told Star Style.

9. Her style heroes are Gigi Hadid and Audrey Hepburn.

And her favorite color is hot pink!
