Today, February 19 is Victoria Justice's 20th birthday and to celebrate we're giving you the inside scoop on her hilarious flick 'Fun Size,' out today on DVD! In the movie, Victoria's character Wren is left to babysit her little brother on what's supposed to be a fun night out -- Halloween. Trying to have a good time while taking responsibility for her little bro lands her in tons of trouble. We got to dish with Victoria on the fun behind the scenes, the hardest part about filming, and what made her pick this role!
J-14: Tell us a little bit about your character in 'Fun Size.'
Victoria Justice: Wren hasn't been able to act like a normal teenager because she's constantly having to babysit her younger brother. She has so much responsibility because of that and I think she's dealing with a little bit of teen angst. She kind of resents her mom because she's dating this younger guy and, like I said, she's always stuck with her brother, so she's dealing with a lot at a young age.
J-14:What made you decide to do the movie?
Victoria: I read the script and I thought it was super funny and different. I had to audition for the role, I had to work hard to get it. But once I did, I was super excited.
J-14: What kinds of things did you do between takes?
Victoria: We just talked and hung out. We filmed 90 percent of the movie at night, so there were times when some of us were falling asleep on set because we had to totally readjust our schedules. But we really just laughed a lot and had a good time.
J-14: What would you say was the hardest part about filming?
Victoria: The scene where the chicken falls on top of the car was hard to film because it was just such a ridiculous thing to happen. We had to completely be straight-faced, like this was the worst moment of our lives. But inside we wanted to crack up because it was just so hilarious!
J-14:What was your favorite part of filming?
Victoria: Just hanging out with the cast and crew. I mean, we all bonded so well. Thomas Mann and I became really good friends and we still hang out. And Jane Levy, Thomas McDonald, and Osric Chau -- I think they're all just great people. It's always nice when you click with the people you are working with. We filmed it in Cleveland, Ohio, so we got to explore that city together -- the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is there and that was really cool. There were lots of fun things we got to do.
