The real Judy Moody
Are you ready for the “Supermegatotally thrilladelic” Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer? Well, it hits theaters TODAY!
In the film, Judy Moody (Jordana Beatty), a 3rd grader with a big imagination, is determined to have a fab summer despite the small snag of being forced to stay at home with her brother, Stink (Parris Mosteller), and zany Aunt Opal (Heather Graham).
As a brilliant solution, she creates “Judy Moody’s Super-Rare Not Bummer Summer Dare,” a competition between friends, where Judy and her buds perform tasks for “thrill points.” Sounds crazy fun, right?
Thirteen-year-old Jordana Beatty stars as Judy Moody and, let us just say, this super sweet chick is the kind of gal we’d love to have as a friend. Just read our exclusive interview with her to see what we mean. 0
GL: How would you describe your character?
Jordana: She’s a fun-loving girl who loves creating plans. She tries to follow them, but it always kind of ends up a different way. She always has a good time and, of course, she is very moody.
What’s your favorite thing about her?
Her creativity and the way she collects things. I started collecting hotel and restaurant mints [while filming in America], but I ended up eating them! Yeah, that didn’t work out.
If you could be a character in a book, other than Judy that is, who would you be?
I really loved in the series 39 Clues and the whole treasure hunting idea. I’d probably take out all the weapons and stuff, and then switch with Amy.
Sounds adventurous! Could you imagine doing something like that in real life?
When we were filming Judy Moody, [my family and I] started geocaching. It’s a global treasure hunt and once you’re a member, you get tiny clues and get to use a GPS to find these boxes with log books in them that you sign. When we came back to Australia, we started a team with Megan McDonald, the author of Judy Moody. It is so much fun!
OK, we’re big on “Would You Rather’s” right now. Would you rather be known as Justin Bieber’s girlfriend OR fellow Aussie, Cody Simpson’s?
Cody Simpson’s. I like his music.
Be sure to catch Jordana on the big screen, then come back and tell us your thoughts.
Will you be catching Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer this weekend? Blog about it, babes.
