6 things you should know about Kat McNamara
One star we were lucky enough to catch up with was Kat McNamara, who plays mean girl Myra in the flick. Be sure to catch Kat and her amazing co-stars this tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel!
Read on to learn all things Kat. You may be surprised at what she revealed!
She was bullied We were shocked to hear, but Kat has been a victim of bullying.
She went on to explain how one mean girl spread all sorts of lies and rumors
about her. Thankfully, she’s only grown from these negative experiences. “[Bullying
is] something that needs to stop, it really does. There are so many kids out
there that really are afraid to show who they truly are because they’re
bullied, and that’s so unfortunate,” she told us. We completely agree!
She’s not afraid to stand out When we asked Kat what she wanted to be for Halloween, she told us all sorts of cool ideas that she’s considered—from Scooby Doo’s Daphne to Audrey Hepburn! It’s clear that this actress doesn’t mind being unique and doing her own thing. “[I want to be] something completely out there and different,” she said. Props to ya, Kat!
She loves healthy snacks We were curious to know what kind of snacks Kat eats. And since Girl Vs. Monster is a Halloween flick, we asked about her fave Halloween treats. Well guess what, kitkats. This chica is all about being healthy! “I’m a huge fan of rice cakes with peanut butter. Healthy snacks temper the sweetness on Halloween.”
She can sing Kat is set to have a song in the movie, called “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Me.” She sings the whole track, and it actually plays during a creepy scene that she’s in. “I sing it when I’m possessed by monsters, so it’s very dark and sinister, which is fun for Halloween,” she said.
She’s generous We had asked Kat to tell us a story about a time someone had scared her, but we ended up learning something much more interesting from the tale. While telling us about a time when a friend jumped out at her on her birthday, Kat said, “For my 16th birthday, I adopted a family and got a bunch of gifts for them instead of having a big party.” Now isn’t that just so super sweet!
She LOVES shoes We know you love the inside scoop on movie sets and props, so we asked Kat what she would most want to take home from the set. Her answer? Shoes, of course. “I am a shoe freak. The ones in this movie are just incredible, and I have all these amazing platform heels.” Hey, we totally get it.
