Joey King Spills On How She Knew She Wanted To Be An Actress

Joey King peeks out behind a bubble in a photo from her spread in Rogue Magazine!

The 18-year-old actress opened up about boyfriend Jacob Elordi, growing up in the entertainment industry and her inspirations. Check it:

On when she realized she had IRL chemistry with Jacob: “I think after spending two months in the beautiful land of South Africa with both Joel and Jacob, it just was so clear how important they both were to me. They became my best friends and I would go to them for anything. But yes, Jacob is such a special person and being the Elle to his Noah was unforgettable. There was no ‘moment’ even though people keep asking us that, it was just so refreshingly natural.”

On how she knew she wanted to be an actress: “I’ve always loved playing pretend and I guess that was something I just never lost. Getting to professionally play pretend?! Doesn’t get much better than that. When I was in Kindergarten though, I wanted to be a chef….I know nothing about cooking.”

On how she navigates the cut throat entertainment industry: “I have such a good family around me who always remind me what was most important in life. I’m really thankful for that. Whether you are in your teens, adulthood, or whatever age group, there are always going to be challenges no matter what. Hard work, positivity, and Capri Sun are the 3 ingredients to having a good attitude towards it all.”

On who are her biggest inspirations: “My mom, my sisters, and my grandmother are the most inspiring people in my life. I couldn’t ask for a better support system. I have so many inspirations both male and female in this business. Just to name a few, Catherine Hardwicke, Emma Stone, Roland Emmerich, Jessica Chastain, and Octavia Spencer. I could sit here and list names of people I look up to all day.”
