Teen Beach 2's Garrett Clayton Pays Tribute To Mom In 'Zooey' Mag

With Mother’s Day just around the corner (it’s this weekend!), our friends at Zooey magazine recruited some of our fave celebs to reflect on the best thing their mom’s have done for them.

Teen Beach 2 star Garrett Clayton opened up about the sacrifice his own mom made for him: “When I first spoke to my mom about wanting to be an actor, she was the person who clued me in to the reality of the situation. She said, ‘If you get your grades up, and keep them up, I’ll help you get into acting. Make sure this is something you really want, because it will be years before anything happens’.”

He continued, “After I went about getting my grades up, she got me a meeting with an agent in Chicago and a meeting with an agent in Detroit (my hometown). From that point on, it was me and my mom taking Greyhounds back and forth for years. She taught me what it means to really want something and have to work for it; nothing worthwhile in life is handed to you.”

WHAT ARE YOU DOING for Mother’s Day?
