Jessica Lu Talks Getting Starstruck by Amy Adams

Jessica Lu is pretty in purple at the at the 2013 TrevorLIVE LA event held at Hollywood Palladium on Sunday night (December 8) in Hollywood.

The 28-year-old Awkward. starlet is featured in the December 2013 issue of Bello mag where she talks about being an Asian-American role model and her royal dog. Check it:

On her dog’s name: “Oprah Suri Cruise Lu, to be exact. She was actually nameless for about a week and a half while I was trying to figure out the perfect name. I wanted her to have a name that nobody else had. I HAVE heard that there is another Oprah out there though… so you win some, you lose some. Also I couldn’t have my cat, Lucky Beyonce Lu, think he was the only royal in the family.”

On still getting starstruck: “Whenever I see people that I really admire, I have this awesome tactic where I freeze, look up at the ceiling and pretend I’m super cool, collected, and insanely busy. I saw her [Amy Adams] standing next to me about to sit down and my eyes did this crazy ‘roll back into my occipital lobe’ trick and it got crazy difficult to breathe. So yeah, I made a really great impression. All I could think about was her episode of Smallville where she guested as someone who ate everything in sight because she was so hungry from her diet. I did not say a word to her that night. But I did manage to smile at her as we stood next to each other, and she giggled in a way that can only be described as mermaid bubbles. I did, however, muster up enough courage to speak when I was next to Zoe Saldana and got a picture. Nailed it.”

On being an Asian role model: I hope so! I get a number of messages from fans that basically validate everything I’m doing in my life. In all seriousness though, I’m extremely happy with how my character on Awkward has grown. I sometimes feel that Asian Americans are portrayed on television as a bit flat or one-sided. Ming is this whole, developed person who speaks the truth and sticks to what she believes is right, all while having a sense of humor. And if I’m considered a role model, nothing would make me happier, but I also hope that it isn’t necessarily just geared towards Asian Americans.”
