What was it like growing up as kid in the entertainment industry?
I never really thought about it like that growing up. I always went to school and when I was working, I had tutoring every day. I still had a childhood.

Given you were acting professionally during your childhood, did you find it hard to fit in with the other kids at school?
The only horror story I have is when Annie, on which I played Molly, aired on ABC, all the kids in my elementary school thought I was super rich and chased me around the playground asking me for money. Other than that, everyone thought it was cool. In middle school and high school, I went to a performing arts school, so it wasn't a big deal.

 

[Being compared to Mila Kunis] is the most flattering compliment I'll ever get. One, she's a wonderful person and very nice. And two, she’s smokin’.

 

When you first started filming Modern Family, did you expect it to be such a big hit?
An actor always hopes, but it was definitely a spectacular surprise.

What do you think has influenced your sense of humor?
Shows like Friends, Will and Grace, and The Amanda Show, I watched all of them growing up. I never thought I was funny, but I guess my comedic timing comes from that.

Do you ever get tired of the Mila Kunis comparisons?
Never. I think it's the most flattering compliment I'll ever get. One, she's a wonderful person and very nice. And two, she’s smokin’.

What's one misconception about you you'd like to clarify?
I'm 21 and will be 22 on November 24. I don't think people need an explanation for why I need to clarify my age.
