Jordana Brewster appears in the May 2013 issue of Marie Claire—and inside, she dishes on her new role in Fast & Furious 6 and her part on TNT's Dallas. Check out some of the best parts of her interview, right here.

On show business: "Whenever I have a kid, if he or she says, 'I want to be an actor,' I'll say, 'Please don't do it!' But no one in my family was in show business, so they didn't know any better."

On school coming first: "My family didn't want me to sacrifice school for acting. They said, 'We'll make a deal with you: If you get good grades, then you can work.'"

On her Fast & Furious co-stars: "It's hysterical that I've known Paul [Walker] and Vin [Diesel] for 14 years now. There's something comforting about watching the same characters grow."

On the future of the Fast & Furious franchise: "Everyone asks, 'Are you going to be doing this with walkers?' In a way, we should be so lucky."
