Joey King Talks Not Sharing Too Much Of Herself With The World

Joey King takes the cover of Flaunt Magazine‘s “Dawn Chorus” issue!

The 21-year-old The Kissing Booth actress chatted with the mag about starting therapy this past year, working on and off camera, and refraining herself from sharing too much.

On taking on diverse roles from The Kissing Booth to The Act: “I think that being able to be an everyday person who is able to transform into someone like Elle Evans, to just be like every girl and able to be a lead of a movie, is meaningful. And also to become someone like Gypsy [Rose Blanchard] and completely strip away my vanity. I think people resonate with that, that vanity is not my top focus.”

On adding on- and off-camera work to her resume: “I feel so frickin’ grateful to have reached such a certain amount of success where I am now able to decide what I want to produce, and create opportunities for myself that maybe otherwise wouldn’t have presented themselves to me.”

On restraining herself from sharing so much of herself with the world: “Being an actor is so tough, because you have this image of who you are and what kind of image you want to present to other people, when in reality you have no control of what people think of you… I started to see the downside of people having so much information about you or to your personality or personal information.”

On starting a new venture this past year: “I have done a lot of work for myself this year. I started therapy this year, which is something I have never done before. I started it to be the best version of myself that I am trying to be.”
