Jennifer Stone: Googling Yourself Is a Mistake

Jennifer Stone: Googling Yourself Is a Mistake

Jennifer Stone caught up with Alloy earlier this month to chat about her new movie, Harriet The Spy Blog Wars, real blogs and what actors shouldn’t do. Check out what the 17-year-old actress had to say:

On the blogs she likes: “I like JustJared and Popsugar. They don’t really give their opinions — they just give the facts, ‘so and so was here on this day.’ So that’s pretty nice. I like a statement rather than an opinion.”

On her favorite scene to film: “It will make sense when you see the movie but it’s going to sound very weird out of context: The dance number in the movie. I get to do my best physical comedy. I watched a lot of I Love Lucy before we filmed it and I really enjoyed that because physical comedy is not my strong suit and I love doing things that I can grow into and can improve on.”

On reading the negative comments: “I did it once and I wish I’d ignored them completely. Its one of those things — I think everyone Googles themselves once and it’s a mistake every time.”

On if she keeps a blog herself: “I have blogged in the past but I’m more of a journal keeper. I keep my notes. I’m sort of Harriet before she decides to share her work with the world. I have my little poems and my little thoughts that I write down but I’m not quite sure I’m ready to show them to everybody else.”

On if she saw the version with Michelle Trachtenberg: “I haven’t. I didn’t want to. I’ve heard it’s fantastic and Ill probably get to see it one of these days, but in preparation for the movie I didn’t really want to have someone else’s interpretation of the character floating around in my head.”

    I loved the movie and Jennifer Stone is amazing. I understand why you wouldn’t want to read some of the comments that people say. Sometimes they are very nasty. I love you Jennifer. Keep up the good work.

    Maybe she should google herself. That way she’ll know what she likes when a man googles her. Hee-hee! Aw, man, I’m dirty.

    Anyway, about this quote:
    “I’ve heard it’s fantastic and Ill probably get to see it one of these days, but in preparation for the movie I didn’t really want to have someone else’s interpretation of the character floating around in my head.”

    It’s pretty easy to understand why she’d hold off on seeing the earlier version. I don’t know whether she actually read the book or not.
