Joey King for Obsessee


Joey King is having a very big weekend. Her new film, Independence Day: Resurgence, is out, and she’s starring in our very first original shoot for Obsessee. Shot by our photographer Paley Fairman, this is Joey like you’ve never seen her before, and all day long, we’ll be revealing the mesmerizing shoot right here on Instagram. And as you enter the actress’s dreamy world, you’ll get to know her too! Resurgence isn’t her first time on the silver screen, though; you may remember her wearing a hot-pink wig in Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here or playing Emma Stone’s little sister in Crazy, Stupid, Love. At 16, Joey’s already made a name for herself as one of Hollywood’s smartest and most talented young actresses, and she’s ready to make some major waves. — @maddie.sensibile
OBSESSEE: As a young woman in the entertainment world, what do you see as the biggest challenge facing females in the industry?
@joeykingactress: As a younger female, not only am I a female, but I am still considered, in some people’s eyes, a child. It’s hard to get respect sometimes from people. I’ve always found that the people I’ve worked with so far have been so respectful and amazing. I’ve yet to encounter too many people who aren’t supportive of me. There’s been sometimes where I’m like, this is because I’m a woman and I’m younger than 30 years old.
OBSESSEE: What’s one thing you always say to yourself for motivation?
@joeykingactress: My sisters and my mom are just so supportive of me. I’m self-deprecating, but in a fun way. For motivation, I always say if I feel confident in the work that I’m doing or I feel like it feels natural, there’s no way it can’t be coming off right.
OBSESSEE: What’s one thing nobody knows about you?
@joeykingactress: I will tell you that I am a *dank* yo-yoer. It’s so random—like, why?
OBSESSEE: Tell us about what you’ve seen as your biggest achievement in your career so far.
@joeykingactress: Being able to watch a performance of mine and say hey, I think I did a good job. It’s really hard for an actor to do, or at least I speak for myself when I say I’m very self-critical. It’s more of an achievement in my mind than a physical achievement. It’s a pretty big deal for me.
OBSESSEE: The original Independence Day was released before you were born, so what was it like preparing for and being a part of the new installment of the film?
@joeykingactress: I’ve also seen it like 80 times. I’m a huge fan of the original film. This was the third time Roland [Emmerich] had asked me to work with him. I’d worked with him twice before, and it was the most amazing experience in the world. To have a director that you admire and love so much want you to come along and be part of such a big moment in cinema history, it is so exciting for me. I cannot wait for people’s reactions toward this film. It’s going to absolutely incredible.
OBSESSEE: In the spirit of your new film, what’s your ultimate “independence day”?
@joeykingactress: Whenever I’m sad, I like to spend the day by myself, which sounds stupid because you’re like, don’t you want to be around people? I don’t like to talk about my feelings! Whenever I’m sad, I’m like, I’m leaving, I’m going to get a pedicure and frozen yogurt by myself, and I will be back. And my mom and sisters are like, do you want anyone to go with you? I am like, no, I do not; I will see you guys later. One of my favorite “me” times is when I’m on an airplane: most of the time, six or more uninterrupted hours just sitting with myself, no phone, no nothing. I can have all the thoughts I need, get some work done—it’s great.
OBSESSEE: What was the most difficult part about essentially growing up on film and TV sets?
@joeykingactress: I think the hardest part is when I went through my painfully awkward phase. It’s been documented on film and TV shows.
OBSESSEE: Who or what is on your radar right now?
@joeykingactress: I have to say I’m a huge fan of Kiersey Clemons. She’s so beautiful, and she is hilarious. I first saw her in Dope. I can’t wait to see what she has coming. My sister Hunter King. She is killin’ it right now! She just got a series-regular spot on this show Life in Pieces on CBS. She’s working so hard; she’s won two Emmys. I’m so proud of her, and I think she’s going to have a really, really big year.

Sixteen-year-old Joey King has been acting for a decade—so yes, at the age when you were just starting to get into American Girl Dolls, she was making her TV debut. With *nine* new movies in the works—including the upcoming Independence Day sequel—she’s only gaining steam.

Here, inside intel from the force to be reckoned with.

Rookie of the Year: In Smartass [stay tuned for the official release date], my character skateboards. So I took lessons at a skate park in Simi Valley, California, called Skatelab, and I just really loved it.

How’s Tricks: I can do a front shove-it, which is where you rotate the board around underneath your feet. But I dream of grinding on a rail [skateboarding on a handrail].

Flying High: When I’m in the air, I’m either having a panic attack or I have total composure. There’s no in between.

Girl’s Girl: I have a beautiful, marbled skateboard by Girl Skateboards. It was so pretty at first, then I started destroying it, putting duct tape and stickers on it.

Dress Code: Helmet, kneepads, jeans, and an oversize Ripndip T-shirt or tank top.

Free Fallin’: During a break on Independence Day, I skated around with an assistant director and Liam Hemsworth. I did a trick and didn’t land it, so I got up and kept going. The guys were like, “Joey, your knee!” I was bleeding, apparently.

Sk8er Boi: Usually when I go to my skate park, I’m the only girl there. It’s a very intimidating setting. And I’m just like, “I know you think I’m a girl and I can’t do it, but guess what? I can.”

Joey King and Liam Hemsworth are both starring in the upcoming Independence Day 2: Resurgence, and the actress just revealed an amazing (and also kind of horrifying) story from set.

She shared a throwback photo showing her serious knee gash, and the accompanying trip she took to the store to get band-aids. It involved stealing her co-star’s car to take that trip.

Joey explained, “I wasn’t supposed to board on set, but I did, got hurt and stole Liam’s car to get band-aids.

Sounds like a serious adventure! Liam probably didn’t mind too much, especially after he found out what Joey was using his car for. A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do!



Independence Day: Resurgence has the potential to be one of the biggest blockbusters of 2016. Fans of the first film have been waiting 20 years for a sequel. And while Will Smith won’t be reprising his role, a slew of new casting additions will be making their mark on the franchise. One of those is 16-year-old actress, Joey King.

Despite her age, King isn’t a newcomer to the Hollywood scene. She’s appeared in quite a few notable films. Her first lead role came from 2010’s Ramona and Beezus. King’s stock has only grown from that point, as she has been seen in White House Down, Wish You Were Here, and Oz.

It’s no surprise that King has been able to find success in Hollywood at such a young age. She has been acting since the age of four, being featured in a Life cereal commercial. King’s first appearance on film came at the age of six.

Most child actors and actresses fizzle out, but King has been able to find the roles that fit her best, and has maintained her relevancy in Hollywood. She’s been seen in family comedies, action films, and dramas. All of these different genres do a great job of showing off her range and versatility.

At such an early point in her career, King has already received praise from numerous critics and festivals such as, the Gotham Awards, Canadian Filmmakers Festival, and the Vancouver Film Festival. And as a 16-year-old there is no question she will add many awards and accolades for herself.

It’s no surprise critics love King. She will do whatever it takes to make a role her own. That includes shaving off her hair to play a staring role in Wish You Were Here, and a supporting role in the Dark Knight Rises. It’s pretty easy to see she’s already well beyond her years, and is passionate about acting.

It’s that kind of dedication and drive that make King so special. She’s still very young, but is also incredibly talented. Hopefully Independence Day: Resurgence opens up more opportunities for her in the future, and she can rise up the Hollywood ranks.
