She said: "I remember when I was younger, driving around New York with my mom and going to auditions. I'd be like, 'Mom drive us by the hookies!' Hookers. I called them hookies.

"There was one street in the Meatpacking District where they all lined up. So I was definitely a part of the dangerous New York when I was younger.

"But now I feel like New York is so safe. I can walk down the street by myself. When I was younger, my mom was like, 'Hold my hand!' It was always a little sketchy. But now Times Square is like Disneyland."

Kirsten has also revealed she relies on the advice on her girlfriends more than anyone else.

The actress, who previously dated Jake Gyllenhaal and Razorlight rocker Johnny Borrell, trusts the opinions of her friends so much she would even dump a guy if they thought he wasn't right for her.

She told Vanity Fair magazine: "I know to go for the good dudes. I think if your girlfriends don't like him, it's probably for a good reason. You're not picking up on something."
