London: Twilight star Nikki Reed says she believes the success and happiness she has enjoyed in her life are the "pay-off" she has earned from her hard work.
The 23-year-old actress, who recently finished shooting the Twilight Saga movies and tied the knot with former American Idol contestant Paul McDonald following a whirlwind romance, insists she isn't living in a "fairytale" because she deserves her good fortune, Femalefirst reported.
"From finishing the Twilight movies to meeting Paul and having our wedding, it's not like I'm living a fairytale, but when you work hard for things there's a nice payoff," she said.
Reed will appear in Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 later this month, and she says her alter-ego is set to finally find common ground with Kristen Stewart's character Bella Swan on the subject of motherhood.
"Bella gets pregnant against everyone's wishes, and Rosalie's life dream is to be a mother, so we find our one common platform with the baby and are on the same page for the first time," she added.
