Mae Whitman shines in a silver strapless dress at the NBC Upfront in NYC last month.
The 23-year-old actress dished to TV Line about playing a teenager on Parenthood.
“While the things Amber went through were unpleasant or can be seen as selfish, itâ€™s really real stuff,” she said, “Being a teenager is hard. One of the things I love about this show is that every family can sit down at the end of an episode and talk about it. Itâ€™s important that weâ€™re tackling these issues. This season we were very, very emotional, so it was hard. But again, things arenâ€™t hard if they make sense.”
“Itâ€™s so realistic, beautiful and painful, and itâ€™s one of the only coming-of-age stories Iâ€™ve ever read that really summed up all of the most sensitive and guttural things you feel when youâ€™re that age.” Mae said, “My wardrobe and makeup is out of control/amazing, and the music is awesomeâ€¦. Itâ€™s just going to be a great visual picture, and the story is great. Iâ€™m really, really proud of it.”
