Celebrity memoir quiz

Hooray for childhoods! Without them, we'd have so much less to complain about as adults. And by adults, I'm referring to the only important folks in our world today: You, me, and celebrities. As you and I work on our multi-volume memoirs – you are writing one, yes? – perhaps we can learn a thing from the early lives of the stars. Luckily, several Hollywood types looked back upon their awkward younger days in books published in 2011.

Can you match these memories and memoirs?

Question 1 of 4

1. Who said this?

Even before I was a teenager, I realized something was wrong. Being the first of four children, I couldn't understand why all the attractive genes had been passed on to my younger sisters… This incredible botch job had to be corrected. I hated my nose, so I slept with a bobby pin stuck on top, hoping the bulb would squeeze into a straight line. In Mom's bathroom mirror, I spent hours practicing a special smile, convinced it would hide my flaws. I even pried my eyes open as wide as possible for hours, determined they'd grow bigger.
