Learn twelve things you might not know about 'iCarly' star Jennette McCurdy.
We recently got 'Best Player' and 'iCarly' star, Jennette McCurdy, to tell us twelve things about herself that you might not have known.
- I decided I wanted to become an actor after watching Star Wars.
- I'm an avid reader and am currently obsessed with fiction and great autobiographies.
- Whenever I have any spare time, I find an ice rink so that I can go figure skating. I find it very freeing and it clears my head.
- I am obsessed with the movie 'Back to the Future' and know a lot of quirky trivia about the film. I even attended a week-long 'Back to the Future' fan event where fans got to ride hover boards, sit in DeLoreans, and recreate scenes from the movie. The week ended with a reenactment of the "Enchantment Under the Sea Dance."
- I do not like pie. The mushy texture is really off-putting to me.
- I'm a huge TV and film buff. I've seen every episode of 'Three's Company,' '21 Jump Street' and all of 'Cheers' and 'M.A.S.H.' I've watched every episode of 'The Brady Bunch,' 'The Facts of Live,' 'The Cosby Show,' 'Gilligan's Island' and 'I Love Lucy.' Movies captivate me too. My favorites include 'Edward Scissorhands,' 'Star Wars,' 'The Lord of the Rings,' 'The Shawshank Redemption' and 'Good Will Hunting.'
- I enjoy tasting extreme foods. The craziest food I've tried so far was rattlesnake which was good. I thought it tasted like breakfast sausage.
- I grew up in a 1,200 sq ft house with eight people living in it! My parents, my three older brothers, my grandparents, myself and, at the time, our three dogs. It was so much fun!
- Growing up, my grandmother walked around the house singing Patsy Cline songs all the time and I think that hearing her sing old country songs definitely raised my interest in the genre.
- I always wear mismatched socks. My grandfather did my laundry once and lost most of my socks so I had no other choice but to wear mismatched pairs. I must have had a particularly good day because now I do it all the time on purpose.
- I have a brown belt in Uechi-ryu, a traditional style of Okinawan karate.
- I really enjoy reading inspirational quotes, especially from people like Henry David Thoreau, Albert Einstein and Oscar Wilde. I think it is so cool to have these little nuggets of wisdom to model your life after. I love quotes that inspire and uplift me to take on any challenge.
