Rowan Blanchard Opens Up About Becoming Aware of Feminism and Politics

Rowan Blanchard looks beautiful on film on the cover of Nylon‘s May issue, available now.

Here’s what the 15-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On who she credits for her developing feminism and politic awareness: “I really owe everything that I do to teenagers on Tumblr who were considerate enough to teach other people about things — not like the Susan B. Anthonys, but, like, Adrienne Rich and Angela Davis.”

On not feeling pressure to change her image now that she’s not on Disney Channel: “I knew the show would end someday, and I didn’t want there to be this weird part where it was like, good girl, good girl, good girl, and then, all of a sudden, bam, she’s going to show her boobs.”

On how proud she is to be cast in her upcoming movie, A Wrinkle in Time: “To be validated like that was very assuring. People hesitate to see me because I was on the Disney Channel and it’s fake acting or whatever.”

    She seems like a very smart, well-spoken young woman. I’m glad how woke she is about the fact that disney channel is fake acting.

  • FreedomFirst

    Be better if she woke to how filthy false and fascist her favorite hate movement is as well.

  • Unaffiliated Voter

    Check out the whole interview. Seems like a massive spoiled brat who has been brainwashed. Moreover, the fact that she freely uses f-bombs at 15 years old only tells me that her parents let her do whatever she wants too. If I used that kind of language in front of my parents, I’d probably be spending a good amount of time in my room.

  • Unaffiliated Voter

    Rowan is nuts! Just what kind of parents does she have anyway? I mean, who lets their 15 year old go around and drop f-bombs all the time like that? Check out the FULL interview…as there’s a reason why Just Jared edited it down.

  • Unaffiliated Voter

    If she never liked Disney to begin with, then she never should have taken the job. Besides, last I knew, this foul mouthed diva was still signed on with them for “A Wrinkle in Time.” After that, however, she’ll probably be done with them. She should really be more grateful toward Disney for even giving her employment at all, but is instead biting the hand that feeds her. Very unprofessional behavior coming from a so-called actress!

  • Just Saying

    (I was being sarcastic, just in case it wasn’t clear) Just like every other celebrity nowadays they use the whole feminist thing to gain popularity. Just the mention of Tumblr made me cringe.

  • Just Saying

    It’s weird the Disney Star that talks good about them after they leave, from the bad ones (Miley Cyrus) to the ones who turned out well (Sprouse twins).
