The figure skater turned model turned actress actually hit the golden coast with dreams of becoming a director and a screenwriter. While she's out promoting Crazy, Stupid, Love, she's also working on her own screenplay.

When she can fit it into her schedule, Tipton studies film at Marymount College, which she transferred to after taking writing courses at USC. There, the model/actress was "judgmental of actors and their Starbucks and fancy cars", resulting in her screenplays turning into slasher films. OK, that last part was just an assumption.
