Bailee Madison & Peyton List Talk About The Pressures Of Being A Child Star

Bailee Madison and Peyton List both grew up on Disney Channel, and the two young starlets are opening up about the pressures they’ve faced.

The 19- and 20-year-old actresses, along with Bailee‘s sister Kaitlin Vilasuso, talked about how growing up young stars set certain pressures on them.

“I find that with the Disney fanbase, there’s a sense of — they’re very comfortable to come up and say hi because I think they spend so much of their childhood watching you in a way, but that can also be really hard on a human being,” Bailee shared during the most recent Just Between Us podcast.

Peyton added that while she didn’t feel a ton of pressure, she does know what it’s like to be constantly compared to former Disney stars before her.

“I just feel like you and I, we’re not trying to hide an insane life from the public,” she shared. “It doesn’t feel like that much pressure to me, but I have people that come up to me when I’m traveling in small towns. They’re like ‘Don’t turn out like that Britney Spears or that Miley Cyrus.’”

Bailee adds, “I think what’s so hard is that this business is so toxic and draining, as I think any workspace is, but I always say to people — I go, ‘Imagine being a teenager and growing up. That’s hard, right? Being a teenager is a very complicated part of your life…Now imagine being a teenager under a little microscope, where everything that you do and say, there are hundreds of people out there waiting for you to slip up.’”
