“When I got the role, I was crying in the car hysterically and really just excited to show the world more of what I love to do and continue chasing the dreams that I’ve had since I was a little girl,” she said.

“It’s definitely gonna be hard to prove to people how passionate and how much love I have for acting,” she continued. “There’s a lot of weight that comes on with that, but it’s something that I’m willing to take on and show people that this is truly who I am and what I love to do.”

Addison also discussed becoming more comfortable with sharing more of her authentic self online.

“I’ve learned to kind of get over that hump of not wanting to show my insecurities or my flaws or things that I’m embarrassed of,” she explained. “Now more than ever I’ve been like, ‘This is me and you either love it or hate it.’ At the end of the day, as long as I’m feeling super excited and happy about the things that I’m doing, that’s kind of all that matters.”

She added that while negativity on the internet will always be hurtful, over time “you kind of learn how to love yourself a little bit harder for the people that like to tear you down.”

He’s All That is set to debut on Netflix on August 27th at 12am MST.

Addison recently dished on working with her BFF Kourtney Kardashian the movie. Check it out!
