Joey King Reveals How 'Ramona & Beezus' Helped Her Fall In Love With Her Job

Joey King is opening up about her first big role – Ramona and Beezus!

The 22-year-old The In Between star dished on how that movie helped her fall in love with acting and her job.

See what Joey shared inside…

“I’ve been doing this since I was four, you know, and it’s just kind of crazy when you think about it,” she said on the Drew Barrymore Show. “When you’re young like that, you’re like, ‘This is fun, I’m enjoying myself,’ but you still kind of don’t get the responsibility of what this job really is.”

Ramona and Beezus came along, and I was the lead of a movie at nine years old, and it was such a heavy weight on my shoulders,” she continued. “But in a way where I like really loved it, and I loved that responsibility, and I think that’s the moment when I really fell in love with the job itself. That feeling has lasted me to now, which is pretty amazing.”

Ramona and Beezus is actually turning 12 years old this year. On the ten year anniversary, Joey opened up about what it was like meeting her co-star Selena Gomez for the first time.
