Twilight actress Nikki Reed has spoken on reconnecting with her father. Her parents divorced when she was 2-years-old and she was raised by her mother alone, and there was often a strain on her relationship with her father. Now, she has tried to mend what’s left of their relationship by reaching out to him and giving him another chance, even though she doesn’t blame him for their relationship disintegrating over time:

“We weren’t close growing up and I guess it was both of our faults. He was waiting for me to come around and I was bitter about him divorcing Mom.”

When she got in touch with her father during the filming of a movie nearby, Nikki told him to look beyond the surface and see what’s really going on with her. She also wanted him to be in contact regularly so they could get to know each other properly again:

I was shooting a movie in Sacramento (California) and I called my dad and said, ‘We need to have a real talk.’ I told him all these things that he had no idea I wanted. I said, ‘I want you to call me every day and maybe five times a day and even if I say I‘m fine I want you to say you don’t sound fine. I need you to dig deeper and tell me you love me every time you hang up the phone.'”
