as pumped to chat up its rising star. Here, Cierra spills all about her own
Why should every girl check out Girl In Progress?
Cierra: Anyone can
relate to it—daughters and mothers. There is a ton of fashion and Ansiedad goes
through so many changes, from nerdy to bad girl. I got to [see] it with my mom
and we bonded after watching it.
Did you bond with
your on-screen mom, Eva Mendes, while filming?
She was always making bets with me. She bet that I wouldn’t eat a whole packet
of mayonnaise and made it a big deal so like everyone was watching and I ate
that thing. You can’t make a bet with me because I will do it.
the best piece of advice that your mom has ever given you?
just be the best me that I could possibly be and not depend on anyone else’s
about one of the most embarrassing things she’s ever done to you?
we’re in the car with friends and there is music, she will make it a point to
sing every line. I don’t know how, but she memorizes every line of a rap song.
She’s big on Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. It’s embarrassing!
That’s hilarious! Aside from rap, what’s one song that
always reminds you of your mom?
Best Day” by Taylor Swift. I have been through all of that with my mom at one
point. Taylor just finds a way to let me relate to everything. There is always
a Taylor Swift song for a mood you’re in.
about one movie you love watching with her?
Nicholas Sparks movie. We are both very emotional. We can’t go through any of
those without crying.
If you could snag something from your mom’s closet right
now, what would you take?
constantly steal her scarves. And she has lots of cool jewelry.
