Actress Jennette McCurdy, who quit stardom a while ago, says that she was not happy with life as an actress and was not fond of the roles she did.
“I was a famous 19-year-old and making a bunch of money, and I felt like I had everything at my fingertips. But I was deeply unhappy, and I actually really resented my life because I didn’t like the projects that I was a part of,” she said on “Empty Inside” podcast, reported eonline.com.
McCurdy, who was known for her show “iCarly”, added that she was aware that children loved watching her on-screen. However, she was not able to identify herself with the roles she played.
“It’s a difficult thing to say because the shows that I was on were so loved by so many people and so many kids, and I hear constantly, ‘You made my childhood.’ And I think that’s great that they had that experience. But that just was not my experience, and I felt a lot of shame-that I wasn’t able to identify at the time because I didn’t like waltzing onto an over-lit, cheesy set and shouting a line. It felt so pointless and shallow,” she said.
