Kaitlyn Dever Opens Up About Summer Movie Roles

Kaitlyn Dever has not one, but two summer flicks coming out soon – The Spectacular Now and Short Term 12!

The 16-year-old actress recently opened up about her upcoming gigs in a new interview.

“When I first read that script, I knew it was going to be pretty tough,” she told Teen Vogue about her role in Short Term 12. “It really took focus and concentration, but I love playing characters that require me to be a different person. In real life I’m so happy, and my character was so depressed. It’s definitely a dark film, but it’s got romance and comedy. The first time I watched it with an audience, I looked over next to me, and some guy’s sitting there crying. And I look at him again a few minutes later, and he’s laughing. It was really cool.”

As for what’s next for her, Kaitlyn told the mag, “I just finished shooting Laggies with Keira Knightley and Chloë Moretz. I play Chloë‘s best friend Misty, who’s kind of a party girl and likes to live in the moment. My wardrobe was the best. I had these giant MC Hammer pants that were camouflage, worn with a crop top, a red leather jacket, and hot pink Doc Martens. I got to have all these colors in my hair, too. My character was so cool. I was like, “I just want to be Misty! Why am I not like this?”
