Brenda Song: Being An Actress is Difficult

Brenda Song: Being An Actress is Difficult

Disney queen Brenda Song took a break from her busy schedule to sit down with Mochi magazine to dish on her life story.

The 20-year-old Suite Life on Deck sweetheart shared her dreams about acting, school and her favorite foods.

On her psychology dreams: “It works hand-in-hand with my acting. It teaches you why people do certain things, and it helps me get into character. It’s a personal endeavor for me. Education is the one thing that no one can take away from you. It’s what you learn, and what you take from it.”

On being a role model: “Oh goodness, I hope I can set a good example. If I can do it, anyone can. I’m living my dream every single day.”

On doing what she loves: “Being an actress is difficult. Sometimes they won’t look at you because you don’t have blue eyes and blond hair, and it’s 10 times as hard to get through the door. Sometimes they’re just not looking for an Asian actress. That was difficult when I was younger, but it’s all part of the job. At the end of the day, it makes you a better person. You can’t think of yourself as an Asian American actress. It’s not about what you look like, it’s about what you do … and who you are as a person.”

    brenda’s glamorous style is loosely influenced by late 50s stars and modern designers, vera wang, channel and she has noted that her favoutrite store is sak’s so i bet she gets most of her gorgeous clothes from sak’s and ny city. i love brenda!!! i look up to her for many reasons!!! she is my style icon.

  • athena

    Well, I love what she has to say, and think that’s an awful choice of heading for her. JJ makes it sounds like she’s whining, when she’s only stressing the difference of choice she faces as an actress…
    When I read the heading, I immediately thought she was whining because she didn’t like the demands on her time what so ever…although, I did read it because I thought she was complaining and was getting upset that she could be so fortunate to dominate a role that not many actresses seeking a break get to have. So, I’m very happy to hear her share positive words and let us peek in on her photo-shoot.
