Zoey Deutch gives a smoldering look in a photo from her spread in C Magazine‘s April issue, on stands now.
The 22-year-old Before I Fall actress opened up about her famous mom, the ups and downs of Hollywood and her drive to succeed. Check it:
On being ambitious: “I love what I do. I really do…And I’m really ambitious. But ambition is a dirty word to some people. All it means is that you’re willing to work hard to do what you love.”
On inheriting her work ethic from her mother, actress Lea Thompson: “She works harder than anyone I know. I remember when I was a kid, she never said, ‘I’m so sorry I have to go to work.’ She would just say, ‘I love you, and I’m going to work.’ We knew that she was proud of it, and she was also an excellent mother. There were no apologies necessary.”
On coming to terms with the ups and downs of working in Hollywood: “At the Gotham Awards, Ethan Hawke gave this great speech; the gist was that he was it then he wasn’t it. He was hot and then not hot. And that it was good for him to experience that, and know that it won’t always be consistent. It’s a job. You have to be OK with the ebbs and flows.”
