Nico Parker & Marsai Martin Open Up About Proving Adults Wrong

Nico Parker & Marsai Martin Open Up About Proving Adults Wrong

Nico Parker and Marsai Martin are both looking so beautiful for the cover of Teen Vogue‘s April 2019 issue, which is out now.

Here’s what the 14-year-old Dumbo actress and the 14-year-old Little actress had to say…

Nico, on refusing to be told that her way of seeing the world is somehow incorrect just because she’s young: “For young people, it’s often said that we’re always on our phones, and we’re not aware of our surroundings, and we’re not aware of what’s going on in the world. It’s the complete opposite.”

Marsai, the youngest Hollywood executive producer in history, on becoming more confident thanks to her acting and producing experience: “The first time I was in Universal, I was 10, and I [was wearing] this blazer. Now, it’s like I come in with sweats with a hoodie, and I’m just like, ‘So, here’s what’s going down guys.’”

Nico, on how her mother, actor Thandie Newton, is helping her learn to be aware of the pitfalls of fame and how situations can become dangerous or manipulative, especially for young women: “[My mom] is very ‘mama bear’ over me. Just the fact that she’s been through things herself, it also teaches me what situations I can avoid, or what situations that I can stay in.”

Marsai, on what she could tell her 9-year-old self, learning to speak up for herself, and her plan to “change the normal”: “What you say matters, and your voice is heard…. [Little] made me feel like this can happen. It wasn’t impossible. We definitely need more of that in the industry. Of course, the more I keep creating, the more that will probably happen.”

Marsai Martin Set to Become Hollywood's Youngest Executive Producer

Marsai Martin Set to Become Hollywood's Youngest Executive Producer

Marsai Martin is about to become the youngest executive producer in Hollywood.

The 14-year-old Black‑ish actress both stars in and served as an EP on her upcoming film Little, a re-imagining of Tom Hanks‘ classic Big.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Marsai Martin

In Little, a woman is transformed into her younger self at a point in her life when the pressures of adulthood become too much to bear.

“This is the first movie I have in front of the camera and behind the camera. And it’s not gonna be the last,” Marsai told ET, adding, “Focus on your game.”

Don’t miss Little when it hits theaters on April 12, and watch the trailer here!

Marsai Martin Is The Bossiest Little Teen in 'Little' Trailer - Watch Now!

The trailer for Marsai Martin‘s debut film, Little, is finally here!

The film centers on Jordan Sanders (Martin, Regina Hall), who as an adult is a take-no-prisoners tech mogul. After a run in with a little girl, Jordan wakes up as a 13-year-old version of herself just before a do-or-die presentation.

Now April (Issa Rae), Jordan’s assistant, has to deal with Jordan as a kid.

Marsai is also producing the film, which she told Essence, hopes to inspire other teens to follow their biggest dreams.

“A lot of people will say different stuff like, ‘You can’t do it.’ They’ll say no before I even say anything,” she shared. “You just have to believe in yourself and there’s a reason they might say no because they probably haven’t seen it before.”

Marsai continued, “You don’t really see a 14-year-old girl creating her own stuff and actually making it into theaters. That’s why you have to start working with people that will trust you and will believe that you can do it and will trust that you can carry…such a big responsibility.”

Little is out in theaters on April 12th.
