The 15-year-old actress, who stars as Sara in Race To Witch Mountain out this Friday, dishes about attending regular high school, her perseverance in acting, and kickboxing. Check it:
On her sport of choice, kickboxing: “Alexander Ludwig actually got me into it. I needed to do some sort of activity when we were on set because we would be sitting in the cab for days and days. [My friend and I] laugh at ourselves and have a good time with it.”
On her friends’ reactions of her being an actress (Note: AnnaSophia attends regular high school): “The Race to Witch Mountain ad came on during the Super Bowl and, of course, the whole school watched it. By Monday, everyone had seen it. They didn’t act any different. It wasn’t like, ‘You are in a movie!’ It was just kind of like, ‘You worked with Dwayne Johnson — that is so cool! He is so hot!’”
On realizing that every gig isn’t for her: “There are a bunch of different actors, and there are a bunch of different stories. I always look at it like flavors of ice cream or kinds of candy. They might be looking for one kind of candy and you’re a different kind, you know?”
