Hana Mae Lee: 'KoreAm' Magazine Feature!
Here’s what the Pitch Perfect actress had to share with the mag:
On her future in acting and designing: “I love acting the most, and my goal is to be known as a comedic actress. I also want to continue portraying my individuality. My ultimate goal is to further my acting career and having a sponsor buy my line, so that I can just focus on designing.”
On facing discrimination in her childhood: “When you grow up in the Valley, all you know is your folks. I had friends that came from all over the world since I was young. I was just never one of those kids who only hung out with Koreans, and they hated me for that. It reached a point where I actually hated being Korean. Before heading to Korea, I remember saying to myself, ‘My goodness they’re going to hate me.’ But when I got there, everyone was so loving and generous. That’s when it finally hit me that my people were actually great.”
On her role in Pitch Perfect: “I loved playing her. It was so fun. I look up to her a lot because she’s so confident and doesn’t care about what other people think about her. For three months, we were filming in Louisiana where I met people from all walks of life. It was such a unique experience.”
