Kira Kosarin Gets Real With Fans About 'Growing Up' on Instagram: 'I Have To Let Myself Grow'

Since the end of Thundermans, Kira Kosarin has been posting more and more “grown up” pics and videos and even saying things that some of her fans aren’t quite used to yet.

The 20-year-old actress and singer headed to her Instagram to explain just why you’re seeing more mature content from her – and it’s fairly simple – she’s not 15 anymore.

“Hi guys. A lot of people have expressed concern about me posting more mature material, given the influence I have with young children,” Kira started out. “Honestly, I’m not mad about it. I love that you guys care enough to see me as a role model and want me to continue to carry that title. I do, however, feel the need to explain myself.”

“Yes, I was on a children’s tv show, but I’m not anymore,” she shared. “I’ve spent the last five years trying to be a good role model for little kids and, as amazing as that’s been, I have to let myself grow up, and I have to let myself grow in my career.”

Kira adds, “As a young woman living in 2018, I’m passionate about embracing my confidence, sexuality, and power, and encouraging young girls (and boys!) to do the same. Sure, there will always be new young people finding the show, which is great. But I’m also lucky enough to have fans who have grown up with me, and are ready for a more mature outlook on life.”

“I still preach the importance of supporting and raising up those around you, approaching the world with kindness and understanding, being driven and passionate about any and every endeavor, being loving and accepting of every minority group, being educated and active in issues of systemic oppression, and attempting to bring a little light to the word whenever possible. Does doing this in shorts and heels make me any less of a role model?”

Kira continued, “I love you guys. Thank you for allowing me to grow up. Thank you for coming on this journey with me. Phoebe will always be a part of me, but it’s time for Kira to step up and live her life the way she wants to. ❤️”
