Vampire Academy actress Zoey Deutch covers Bello mag march issue.
On the “family business”: “It’s funny when people ask me this question, because I never really have a straightforward response. The truth is, I don’t know. My parents are both very grounded, hilarious, kind people I really respect – not only as artists, but as human beings. They definitely influenced me in ways I don’t even probably know. So it’s kind of that thing of nature versus nurture. I definitely think this is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I probably would’ve always wanted to do. But, you know, having parents like this can help you get in the room. But it doesn’t help you stay there.”
On networking with fans: “I tweet and Instagram quite a bit, but I feel like I have a very love-hate relationship with it for multiple reasons. One, it’s super addictive. Two, it kind of leaves nothing to the imagination – there’s no mystery to me, especially as an actor. You want to be an enigma. You want to be someone who doesn’t get pigeonholed or thought of as their personality – that they can…fit into different roles. But it’s hard in this day and age where you’re expected to be accessible. I think the reason I’m always Instagramming is because I’ve always loved taking pictures. It’s a cool platform.”
On her acting goals: “You look at somebody like Sandra Bullock, who, by the way, I’m by no means comparing myself – I could never be half the actress she is – I’m just using her as an example because she has such an incredible career being a well-respected dramatic as well as comedic actress in such a way that I so admire. Being able to go from Gravity to The Heat is so fun and inspiring. So I guess my goal and my dream is to hopefully do both in the near future.”
