The first Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie was an instant classic. For those who missed it, the 2010 film — which was based on Jeff Kinney‘s book of the same name — follows Greg Heffley, who is trying to navigate middle school unscathed. The movie starred Zachary Gordon, Robert Capron, Devon Bostick, Chloë Grace Moretz, Karan Brar, Laine MacNeil, Grayson Russell, Rachael Harris, and Steve Zahn.
“As a kid, you don’t realize the magnitude of a project,” Zachary said when reflecting on the film during a March 2021 interview with Digital Journal. “You want to be a kid and have fun. Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a part of my legacy. It is something that I will always hold dear to my heart. I have been very blessed and fortunate. I am grateful that a new generation is starting to watch the movies.”
The actor has grown a lot since the film’s first premiere. “I am in a very interesting chapter where I am learning who I am. It’s about growth and acceptance,” the actor explained.
