Hello everyone. Joey had a photoshoot for Asos. For now only available one pictures, but I hope that we will see more soon 🙂 Enjoy!
Hello. Joey had beautiful photoshoot for Flaunt Magazine. I hope we will see more pictures from that photoshoot 🙂
You are on your first set. There are little tables, with little chairs arranged around them, and other kids who are playing with glue and glitter—although they’re not really playing; they are doing what the director told them to do. You are also doing what the director told you to do. You look in the little plastic bowl in front of you. You get up and grab a box of Life Cereal off of a high shelf. You take it back to your table and pour it into your bowl until it is over owing. You take a handful of cereal and put it in your mouth. You get up and strike a pose. The audience feels love, joy, and a slight pang of hunger. The director yells “cut.”
Joey King began her career when she was four years old. Most children by age four—WebMD claims—should be able to get along with people outside the family, draw circles and squares, and ride a tricycle. Since that commercial, King has appeared in 22 films and 14 TV shows. Now 16, she has starred opposite Colin Hanks, Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, James Franco, Jamie Foxx, and Selena Gomez. King has nine projects on the radar—among them this summer’s extraterrestrial fun bath, Independence Day: Resurgence.
Given this résumé, it’s no surprise that when I ask King what she likes to do on vacation, her answer is, “Vacation? That’s a fun word. I usually don’t do that.” Despite a lack of downtime, King leaves room for spontaneity, “One of my favorite adventures that I ever went on is when me and my older sister Kelli were sitting, painting our nails together, it was 1 PM and she was like, ‘Hey, I kinda want to go to Disneyland today,’ and I was like ‘Hey, me too.’ So, we literally just got up and, just the two of us, went to Disneyland.”
While she scales the precipices of Hollywood, and increasingly, the world of fashion—King appeared front row at several New York Fashion Week shows, and attended Chanel’s “I Love Coco” event last spring in L.A. alongside pal Rowan Blanchard (featured in Flaunt’s Secrets issue)—she does take some moments to look down. “When I was nine years old, I don’t think I realized the gravity of what it meant to be the lead in a studio lm [as Ramona Quimby in Ramona and Beezus (2010)] and now I’m like, ‘Whoa, wow, I did that!’ And that’s crazy. I was still just as excited then but I have not lost that wonderment at all. I think it’s even gotten greater because I understand the gravity of what I’m doing.”
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.”
