“I feel like they’re both me being interested in storytelling,” Jena told the A.V. Club. “In one I become the body and in the other I become the voice. I feel like the boundaries are pretty blurry for me because when I’m singing, I’m creating stories and creating characters and becoming really raw and intimate with my emotions. Then, obviously, in films I’m getting lost in something more specific. But it’s all getting lost in the art of characters and stories and wanting to move people.”

She also revealed, “I turned down Parent Trap like three times.”

    I loved Jena in Stepmom. She was a really good actress as a kid and she still is now.

  • Ha

    That’s why she’s a nobody….. Never heard her name or seen her in any movie.. Or not that I remember her face or anything.. If she wants to show off, it’s not really a good thing to say that like she is above the Parent trap. Even though Lindsay is a bit of a mess now, at least she’s famous. And she used to be a great actress. I don’t like how she said that “I turned down the parent trap like 3 times”, like she was too good for it or something ugh

    @JJ: Absolutely, she’s my favourite actress and a charming person

    @Ha: She was famous as a child actress and one of the best, now she’s grown up she’s becoming marvelous and she can keep up with JLaw when it comes to acting. Moreover Jena is the sexiest and hottest actress of Hollywood nowadays.

    Wonderful body!

  • Jen

    @ernest schoenmakers: She was in a lot of movies as a kid, but famous? No. She would be famous if everyone knew who she was and what movies she was in a kid. I could go up to anyone and name a famous child actor or actress and they would know who they were…you say Jena Malone and unless you’re a big THG fan, you still won’t know who she is. I like Jena, so I’m not dissing her, but famous she was not.

    @Jen: Wake up, she was famous as a child and she was amazing one of those childs who can act with their face without saying a word, there were many people i was talking to who knew her as a child. Nowadays as being Johanna Mason in THG-franchise many people remembered her from childhood and with her band The Shoe she’s becoming more famous now, so i think you’re a little ignorant.
