AnnaLynne McCord: I Surprised Casting Directors!

AnnaLynne McCord: I Surprised Casting Directors!

AnnaLynne McCord works it out in a feature in Prestige magazine’s August 2010 issue.

Here’s what the 23-year-old actress, who posed for celeb photographer Mitchell McCormack, had to share:

On being homeschooled: “I studied through 12th grade. You can do that with homeschooling because it’s more flexible. I just blew through the grades and graduated early. I don’t think I missed out on anything by not going to high school. Home schooling is becoming more common in the US. It’s not that unusual in the southern and western states. The day I graduated, I was off to Miami to become a model. My parents, being so conservative, did not like it, of course. But I was always a pretty headstrong daughter and I was financially independent, so nothing was going to stop me. I packed my bags and my uncle drove me to South Beach.”

On surprising casting directors: “I had interesting reactions from casting directors. To them, I suppose, I looked like this blonde bimbo with a New York attitude who should be a model, not an actress. I remember one of them apologised to me when I had finished my audition. He said: ‘Oh my God, you really can act!’”

On working hard: “The truth is that you have to work to be an actor, and I work my a– off. I come from a background where you have to work to succeed in anything.”

    Never thought she was pretty enough to be a model or talented enough to be an actress. She obviously thinks highly of her acting skills, LOL, and her intelligence. Someone might want to let her know that skipping grades in homeschooling is not that impressive and doesnt exemplify a high intellect. The only reason I know who she is, is because of the tabloids like us weekly.

    LOL Says:

    she auditioned for roles in Twilight and Scream 4 (and probably more movies) and didn’t even manage to get a small part like the stupid blonde who dies in 5 secondes… ‘Nuff said… she’s a really bad actress who needs to parade her fake BF and fugly sisters at every Hollywood parties in order to not being forgotten. Really sad…

    She is really pretty but she does sound kind of conceited in this interview. She always plays the same bitchy characters so maybe its rubbing off on her.

    She is an absolutely useless ‘actress’. Her appearances on 90210 make me cringe.
