Joey King: 'Ramona and Beezus' Out Today!

Joey King: 'Ramona and Beezus' Out Today!

Joey King cuddles some stuffed animals close to her as she visits FAO Schwartz in NYC earlier in the week.

The 11-year-old actress caught up with JJJ to chat all about her new flick, her Ramona-isms and the funniest thing that happened on set. Check it:

On how she won the role of Ramona: “It took almost a year process to go through all the auditions and everything to see who they really wanted for Ramona. It was a long process but it was so much fun and I’m happy I got to play her. We have some similarities and differences. Her and I have like the personality. We’re both really energetic, outgoing and she has a sister. I have two. But there are some differences too. Like she has a cat – I have three dogs.”

On her favorite on set story: “Oh! Here’s a good one. Me and John [Corbett], he and I planned this out. He wanted me to pretend in a scene – this was the beginning of filming – He said, ‘Joey, I want you in the scene to pretend to get really mad at me’ and I guess I did a convincing job because the producers came up to us afterwards and said, ‘Don’t ever do that again. You almost gave us a heart attack.’ It as so funny.”

On how she bonded with the cast: my favorite about the cast… they were all so nice people. I love working with Bridget [Moynahan]. She was always so sweet and we always had fun. John [Corbett], he’s such a goofball. He’s so hilarious and Selena [Gomez] – we’re like sisters now. Everybody on set was fun to work with and I really liked the storyline because it’s really based on the books. I actually think it’s good that they mostly base everything on the books. I think that’s nice.

Stay tune to JJJ throughout the weekend for more of our interview with Joey! 35+ pics inside…
