Jenna Ortega Recalls Her Own Chaotic Family Vacation Ahead of 'Stuck at Christmas' Movie Premiere

Jenna Ortega 100%, absolutely relates to her Stuck in the Middle character Harley in the brand new Stuck at Christmas movie.

Not only do we see Harley get the middle seat in the show normally, but she’s back in that one seat for Christmas too — and what’s even funnier though is that this happens in her real family!

“I have done this same thing,” Jenna told us ahead of the premiere. “[My family and I] traveled to Utah for Christmas to visit family one year and it was a 12 hour car ride.”

“My booty started to hurt sitting in the car, we were pushing each other off,” she explains of the seating arrangement hierarchy in big families. “Like Harley, I’m always stuck in that middle seat and all my real siblings are leaning on me to fall asleep.”

“They’ll lay their heads on my shoulders and it’s so uncomfortable and we’re always pushing each other.”

Jenna continues, “We’ll start off normal and it’s all very calm and hanging out, but then by the end, we’re all arguing with each other, you’re in my seat, stop touching me…I can totally relate to Harley and the Diaz family.

When we told her to call dibs on one of the other seats, Jenna told us it does not work that way: “They never let me sit anywhere else! It’s the because I’m the smallest in the family and that middle seat is the smallest too. It’s not fair at all.”

Don’t forget that Stuck at Christmas also leads into season three of Stuck in the Middle!

“I love that we do that because it just gets everyone excited for the new season,” Jenna shared with us.

Stuck in the Middle is actually one of the only series on Disney Channel that does that.

Jenna adds, “It’s a prep for the new season. We shoot the movies first and then go into the episodes, and it’s nice to have that extra long first episode and the other ones that we film afterwards, are more chaotic too shoot, so having that movie lead in is really nice.”

Stuck at Christmas premieres TONIGHT, December 8th @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
