“Well first of all, I saw the photo and the 14-year-old in me was like, ‘Ahhh’,” she admitted. “But you know, it’s a funny photo and he’s trying to be funny. So it worked on all levels.”

She continued, “When I saw it, he sent it to me from work and I said, ‘Can I please have that underwear? Please. I never ask for anything.’ Anyways, I do have it. I’m wearing it right now. There was something about the image that sparked my little teenage [self].”
